Caledon Library Ball

Saturday evening saw a lovely event: a Ball to celebrate the introduction of the Caledon Library's Ellen Throckmorton Riel Memorial Etiquette Collection, in honour of the Grandmother of the Duchesses of both Loch Avie and Carntaigh.

It was also Bastille Day so I sported the Musketeer uniform I have been commissioned to make.

My darling wife looking stunning as usual.

Dancing with Dame Bryndal

To cut down on lag Sir Zenmondo's dancecards were not used, but this also gave those more forthright ladies the opportunity to ask a gentleman to dance [What is the world coming to?]

A wonderful evening all told.

You know, Sir Edward, after knowing military life, asking a gentleman to dance does not sound as difficult as one would think.. ;)

And they love it really, you know, Miss Gustafson. Not that they could ever admit it, but its true. Male ego is just as subject to the joys of flattery as a woman's.

And don't all the gents look lovely in their uniforms?

The ball was definitely a lovely event. We would have been better served keeping the ball running the rest of the night. *smiles*

Ask? But I have this pounce animation here that can be ever so useful....

Thank you for the kind post on this Library/Duchy sponsored event my Lovely Lord Edward. I was far too busy to take any pictures and then headed out on my RL vacation!

I encourage everyone to visit the Etiquette Collection in its permanent home on the 3rd Floor of the Whitehorn Library in Caledon VictoriaCity.

Her Grace, Gabrielle
