waiting for the sun.

man, this weekend was awesome: brooklyn flea, endless ice cream, a road trip to mystic, mojitos on the patio of habana outpost. now that the day is gloomy and chilly again, i can't help but reminisce about the 90-degree weather. though, of course, at the time i was complaining about sweaty pits, having nothing to wear, and my sunburned shoulders. i take it all back!!

photo taken by caroline shortly before i stuffed that dipped AND sprinkled cone in my mouth.

The HBO film, starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lang is certainly a perfect tribute to both the original documentary and these two wonderful woman.
I was told right after filming of the HBO film wrapped up in the fall of 2007, that I would be blown away at the last scene, where Edie sings Tea For Two at Reno Sweeny, and I was ! I had supplied the film company with the only recording in existence of Edie singing the tune, only this wasn't from her actual performance at the club, but rather her singing it just for me at one of my many visits to Grey Gardens, more than 30 years ago. Drew sang it exactly, phrase for phrase as I have it on tape. Edie and I actually met that night at Reno Sweeny, and my relationship with Grey Gardens has now spanned over 3 decades.
