I just thought that I would write to let you know how much fun that I had in Palm Springs this last weekend. I went there to help celebrate the birthdays of three very dear friends. Ben celebrated his 40th birthday, and two very dear ladies celebrated their birthdays as well for the month of February. (Siouxzan and Kitten). Needless to say, I worked my fingers to the bone making birthday presents. Between making blankets and stoles and capes, it was wonderful to see the looks on their faces when they got the presents. I also made a jeweled box for Siouxzan. I thought that it would be nice if I made my gifts to them because anyone can go out and buy stuff, but these were made with love.
We stayed a fabulous little hotel there called the Coral Sands, Owned and Operated by a dear lady, Ruby Montana. Since we had all the rooms, it was one big party all through the hotel. Being at Ruby's was like being at home and having a great time with friends dropping in and bringing party favors, snacks, plus we barbecued some great food that was cooked by BiBi and Marie. I think that I gained 25 lbs. just from the food that was prepared so well. If any of you go to Palm Springs, you should definitely stay at Ruby Montana's Coral Sands Hotel. If you don't you will always regret it.
Needless to say, we partied all weekend and between the Chanpagne and a couple of glasses of wine on my part, the weekend was a ball. I hadn't seen any of my friends for over a year and a half, so it was doubly wonderful. Heck Sooz and I danced until the wee small hours of the morning. Finally, when I looked up everyone was gone. All I have to say is that you young people have no staying power.
I have to download all the pix that were taken but you will all be happy to know that I have finally decided who the director of my documentary will be. I got to meet Jeffrey Schwarz this past weekend and we had such a wonderful rapport that I decided to have him as the director of the documentary. I know that he will do a wonderful job for not only myself, but for the fans as well. I have seen some of his other work and he is fabulous.
We will be traveling back to Chicago in the next few months and going from there to St Louis, NYC, pretty much all of the various states that I have danced in and then appeared in for the films that I have done. It should be great viewing for all of my friends and fans.
Always with love,
