Gail Watson and Maria Mcbride sent out the invitation to celebrate Valorie Hart’s birthday
Yes, they wrote, Valorie & Alberto are back in town, New York that is.

Toast Valorie
Tuesday, July 21st
After 8pm

If the weather was beautiful we’d be in the garden but Tuesday morning opened up with a major downpour, a 1969 issue of the New York Times headlining the first space walk in the moon on the breakfast table and presents for the birthday girl. As the day went by, the rain stopped almost completely but a persistent garua, the fine drip that annoys you but don’t get you wet, greeted the friends from present to past who attended the special celebration.

After that we kissed, hugged and made promises to see each other more often, to stay in contact, and then headed for a milonga where we danced till 2 in the morning.

  1. How wonderful to see some birthday pics, Valorie! I hope you’ll post some on the Vamp site too. I’m dying to see the rest of that apartment you all are in (and any other New York apartment you’ve been to on this trip). That picture of Eddie Ross cracking up in laughter is a keeper! I’ve been saying it all week, but Happy Birthday!
