In a Perfect World

You know what I'd like to do to celebrate this festive weekend? I'd like to run over to the Alvin and get a couple of tickets to see Ethel and the Schnozz in Cole's latest, Red, Hot and Blue! It would even be worth putting up with Bob Hope. We could grab a drink at the Algonquin beforehand, and maybe go on to dinner at Sardi's if we can get a table.

Of course, this is mostly what I would like to do every weekend, and have about as much chance on the Fourth of July as any other. I suppose what we'll do instead is put a patriotic ribbon on Koko and have an indoor picnic (as any outdoor activity would run the the risk of second-degree burns). Oh, well...


  1. How much fun would that be?!?
    Maybe schmooze with Cole Porter at his place at the Ritz-Carlton?
    Of course the theatres were not air conditioned.
    Now in America, we celebrate our independence from the tyranny of the British Crown by having appliance sales & being very, very loud.
    Best wishes to you & thanks for the wonderful blog. I am a daily reader.

  2. "appliance sales & being very, very loud..."


    But too true.

    And thanks to you. As they say, if you like what you see, tell your friends...
