"the" Mrs. Astor

Saturday, December 29, 2007

Fun times and they continue to build up through the weekend. Meanwhile, Leopoldo continues the move in; he moved into my heart a long time ago, and it is just the period on the sentence now. Last night we got one of the most touching compliments ever. A paralyzed customer who every now and then wheels up with his boyfriend came in and, of course, we all greeted and made him feel like a part of The Family. Queen Cabaret fawned over him as did we. Late in the evening, he put his shaking hand on Leopoldo's wrist and said, "You two make me feel like I have legs." We both cried.

Leo and I have cried several times when we talk about it. I hope he wheels up again today so we can make him happy again (and mabe get a photo).

There WAS a reason Officer Brian called The Palace, "The Happy Place".

Alexis, you two radiate a love, happiness and joie d'vivre previously unheard of! And guess what....it's very contagious. That's how life should be.

No, silly, that was Wed. and our friend was there Thurs, and Fri.

Seeing Burghie might have caused a miracle.

Tosca, the matching of the two of us was a social cataclysm. We both have no doubt that we were destined to meet; we just had to go through a lot of training.
