Dowager Duchess Day

All over the world, people should be celebrating. Today is the 85th Annual Day of the Dowager Duchess (aka my mother's birthday). I'm probably in big trouble — yet again — for announcing her age. She's no longer sixteen, but she's gotten even sweeter over the years.

SEVENTEEN GOING ON EIGHTEEN.

Happy Birthday, Mamasita!
Love, your Boys from Seville
(and your Boy in New York, too)

      I'm sure the Dowager Duchess doesn't mind seeing herself described as a knock-out (but I'm sure she's laughing and blushing).

      The Duchess STILL has those gams. Pretty amazing. But now she prefers sneakers.

      The Duchess has no anti-New Jersey bias. She's got family there! And, yes, you tell her what a fine boy she raised!
