you, Alyce, for allowing us to come to your unique and beautiful, purple
house to play dress up. We felt like kids again. It was such
fun trying on your collection of
vintage and Victorian dresses, finding matching shoes, purses,
and boas, and choosing just the right jewelry. Alyce kept piling
on the jewelry while saying, "You'll know when it's enough when you
start to tip over." Then the eight of us were chauffeured in
two 1940 maroon Fords to the London Grill in the Benson Hotel.
