Gotta Dance



At last the day has arrived. I'm dressed to the nines, just waiting for the doorbell to ring here at the chateau. I expect we'll arrive fashionably late, but not so late that we miss the late afternoon stroll through the willows that is the traditional beginning of the Willow Manor Ball.

I'll be at the Ball today. C'mon over and check it out.

On with the dance! let joy be unconfined;
No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet
To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.

George Gordon, Lord Byron


Oh yeah!!
