"the" Mrs. Astor

Monday, May 05, 2008

Before being kidnapped and tortured by the evil Countess Bedelia, my talented sister used to "wow" Newport society with glamourous, interpretive dances. Caroline Astor's ballroom in Beechwood would often be the springboard of her magnificent talents, and money would pour into the coffers of charities as a result. Alas, with no word coming from the mountains of Transylchusetts, one can only expect the worse: du Barry, formerly Countess of Newport, has either died or become a fixture at The EconoLodge bar in the Berkshires. In either case, her spirit is celebrated and her demise mourned. I will light a candle tonight as I don a sombrero and celebrate everthing that is Mexican, and I mean everthing.

And once again I am prompted to remind you, lest you forget, that you are living the dream.

Have I mentioned lately that I love you?

But alas, it was not meant to be...after all, the great white north is called white for a reason.

It almost seems like duBarry is caught in a combination of Hitchcockian Films like "The Lady Vanishes" and "The Man Who Knew Too Much",but with some of "The Women" thrown in ... Are he and THe Countess researching to mount their own production at the Bershires?

Hope you had a good Cinco de Mayo, You certainly have a good reason to celebrate everything Mexican.....
