lady Ellens fall fantisy fashion show
i had such a great time at this event but since (as my other self ) i had also been the main speaker both sat and sunday at our towns big county historical society event it will take me a week to rest up.
i had stood for the most part for 5 hours both days from 12-5 pm showing off a vintage cyl record player and discussing the ragtime to jazz era and then i added standing in 3" heels on sat. night.... needless to say the balls of my feet had had it by the end of the evening.
all i can say is lady ellen and the group that put on the fashion show did a fabulous job! about 150 people attended and the staff at the hilton in raritan center edison nj
where the event was held were great. it was soooo great to actually get to meet so many of the persons i have communicated with on line over the years. there were soooo many beautiful ladies and some FtM men as well along with their families and friends too.
i had run home after the historical society event at 5 30 pm grabbed some dinner, and a 10 min nap and quickly changed into y black beaded dress with the handkerchief points and rand out the door.
i had printed out a mapquest of how to get their via the local roads, brought along my trusty ol' hagstoms map and my gps system on my phone. everything went well until i got to the last traffic light about 100 yards from the hilton driveway when my gps system went blond on me. it told me to make a left at the light. when i did this it led me ak up on the local highway aggghhhhh. so close yet soooo far and now i was trying to find my way back to the hotel. now you must understand this was a former milatary base so who know what caused the gps to go astray. when i arrived in the parking lot from the other direction the navigation system said " recalculating route" instead of "you have arrived at your destination"
now i am about a half hour late but i did catch the second half of the fashion show.
i don't have photos of the show due to a request of no photos since there were some newer gals working the show.
the second half of the show outlined a gal from childhood to her wedding day. where a FtM was the groom.
the ladies were all beautiful both in the show and in the audience. one gal told me it was her first time out in public and let me tell you she had me fooled as i thought she went out in public all the time. she was rock star skinny and her make up was flawless!

also a group of GG's had sort of "crashed" the social hour after the event. and they also wanted to be apart of the festivities.
one or 2 of my photos didn't record properly as i think i needed to change the batteries in the camera. sadly enough this was the one of me by my self.
needless to say i had a wonderful time. Lady Ellen and the fashion committee outdid themselves.
hugs to all
