It was a remarkable night. Unlike Richard’s first show with me, this one was ALL Ivy. It’ll be posted on Monday.
I will say this though. My daughter is a giant Richard Press fan, and asked to come down to see him again. She and her boyfriend were once again the only teens in the room, and Richard turned around when we entered, walked right past me and held his hand out and said, “Gramercy!” Later, his wife Vida, who is equally gracious, introduced herself to Gramercy and at a busy event made ten minutes to talk to a kid.
The biggest applause of the night was not at the beginning, it was not at the Sinatra story, it was not at Richard’s State Of The Union Address on the subject of dignity. It was at the announcement of Richard and Vida’s 61st wedding anniversary.
Happy Anniversary, see you Monday, where you will hear Richard Press affirm jeans with a tie, and that back in the day the socks were indeed white.
