Coming out of hiding to attend a Ball

October 12, 2011

As you know, I’ve been away for well over a year. But I’ve been coaxed out of hiding with an invitation to the Willow Manor Ball.

This gorgeous young lady has asked me to be her date for the evening.  True, I am her third choice, but after being turned down by Vincent van Gogh  (is that guy nuts or what?) and then also by Tom Waits (he prefers Jersey Girls) she realized that the only man for her was right there beside her already.

So what does one wear to such a special occasion? I’ve decided to stick with a classic black tie look. I’m sure I will impress with this:

And of course, when one has such a stunning lady by his side, you want make sure you arrive to the affair in style. I toured my garage this morning and after much time, selected this to be our vehicle:

My 1923 Deusenberg Model A Roadster.

See you there!!

    You will be a stunning stud at the ball and wow them all I have no doubt.
    so good to see you come out of hiding. I have missed you terribly.
    Alas, I hope this keeps you here for more fun posts (or not so fun, as the case may be)…
    Hugs from me who didn’t get invited to the ball.
    I was too busy playing artist for the entire weekend. But I did paint a Chateau!

    3rd choice ain’t that bad……I’m mean from the other 2, one was dead! But that car would win any woman’s affection! Enjoy the ball!

    With tails, a vintage convertible, and a beautiful lady, this night can’t help but be awesome! I hope you can dance… but of course, everyone can at the Willow Manor Ball.
