Right after work we decorated the ballroom and it looked beautiful. Jakey came for me and gave me a corsage when we got home. He also sent me a lovely valentine. We got to the Sheraton a little after nine. We had such a crowd and a grand one. My gown looked beautiful and I wore my lace mantilla all evening and received many compliments. Jakey had a quart of Scarlett O’Hara in the car and we (Jimmy Veale, Fabby Notuis) dispatched of it in short order.
What a fabulous sounding night, and I can find no pictures. Trust me, I searched. I bet I will run across some some day. Until then, I’ll just have to use my imagination.
