"the" Mrs. Astor

Birthday Change Amongst Others

A lot has changed in the last ten days. The parting of ways with The Palace became permanent and--after working seven days a week for three years--these ten days were a much-needed rest. Mr. Astor and I finally straightened out La Casa from his big move in January and we even were able to construct a new and fortified closet after the weight of his wardrobe caused a calamitous collapse of the entire structure two weeks ago. We did a lot of shopping, too.

It also took some time to recover from Thomas Barker's Bar Crawl; it was well-noted that the town suffered from a collective hangover from that night. Forget the "first annual bar crawl", Barker; the town wants one every month.

And, most of all, the birthday celebration of Henrietta's 67th birthday this Easter Sunday will be held in the bungalow bar at Twist at 5 PM. Final touches are being made today and the grand diva's famous cooking will be one of the highlights.

And, hopefully too, my tangled computer Internet mess will be straightened out by Connie Chung. I let it slide for the ten days to make the rest complete, but when you need to bring out the big gun for a computer meltdown, you go Asian. (She good when she wants to be.)

Alexis,

Having the Palace live on without you in tow somehow just doesn't seem right. However, I want you to remember that when one door closes another door opens in its place.

This isn't the end - I truly believe this is the beginning of the next great chapter in the adventures of "the" Mrs. Astor!! :-) All my best always!! Love you! :-)

-Jesse
