To The 15th Annual Ball! (Page Nine)
Time for a short walk to the 1930's and 1940's... Back in time we go.
The building is simply magnificent!
The workmanship was outstanding
When Paul arrived there was only one table
available on the left hand side of the room!
Sue saved the day... She found three open tables and quickly threw everything she owned on the tables to save them.... Then ordered champagne!

Did You Know? - Stan Laurel (born Arthur Stanley Jefferson; 16 June 1890 – 23 February 1965) was an English comic actor, writer and film director, most famous for his role in the comedy duo Laurel and Hardy. He appeared with his comedy partner Oliver Hardy in 107 short films, feature films, and cameo roles.
Laurel began his career in music hall, where he appropriated a number of his standard comic devices: the bowler hat, the deep comic gravity and the nonsensical understatement. His performances polished his skills at pantomime and music hall sketches. Laurel was a member of "Fred Karno's Army," where he was Charlie Chaplin's understudy.
With Chaplin, the two arrived in the United States on the same ship from the United Kingdom with the Karno troupe.
Laurel began his film career in 1917 and made his final appearance in 1951. From 1928 onwards, he appeared exclusively with Oliver Hardy. Laurel officially retired from the screen following his comedy partner's death in 1957.
Stanley had them captivated!

We are in there somewhere!
"Do we have photos to share or what?"
Now we are ready for a drink! Charlie was chasing me around the
floor for the last twenty minutes!
Simply great fun!
"Lucky! I think your hat may be a tad too tall!"
Indeed... Romance is in the air!
Carrie made it back from the conga line!
Looks like Steve and Janet are enjoying the festivities
"I think I smell dessert and a nightcap in our near future!"
Still smiling after a twenty minute workout?"
Aren't we lucky to live in a non back & white world?
Did someone say nightcap?"
"I shall lead the charge to dessert!"
Guess where we are going?
