...but Cole for Halloween??!!
Many things going on at the inn lately. The Foliage Seekers from all over the globe graced Western Maine--and Mother Nature did not disappoint them one iota this year. Hues of oranges, reds, and yellows blazed along the roadways of the area, splashing off the lakes in Monet fashion. Even with the rain we had, the colors still linger on even now!
I have been thinking a bit about Cole Porter over October (his passing was on October 15, 1965). Robin & Katie, two gals from Metro Boston, actually picked Inn at Long Lake and The Cole Porter Room to celebrate their 1-year anniversary. I was touched to know they shared my interest in this brilliant composer/lyricist.
In today's mail, my dear friend, Lin, in Dunedin, Florida had sent me a Halloween package. In it was a CD of "Dionne Warwick Sings Cole Porter" (which I am groovin' to now!). Dionne is one great lady with a gorgeous, unique voice. "You're The Top,""Begin the Beguine,""Night and Day," and "I Love Paris in the Springtime." All great classics in American songwriting, for sure. What a treasured gift and cool coincidence!
If your Ouiji board is "in the shop" and you'd enjoy spending some time with Cole Porter (hehe), come to our Thanksgiving Weekend Sing-a-long Event, featuring the piano stylings of Charles Grindle. It will be a toe tapper, I am certain!
Best to all! And remember...."Anything Goes!"
