There's nothing like a Dame


Hey kids,

I was sad to hear of the passing of Kitty Carlisle Hart at the age of 96. She looked 76 and was still performing up til December.

What a dame she was...in high heels and tailored suits every day of the week. It's not easy to do that kids....She was a lifelong patron of the arts and did many great things behind the scenes... I linked the article about her so you can read it...

I had the pleasure of meeting her a couple of times and enjoyed a Manhattan she ordered for me. We had a lovely conversation about wine and cheese...She said she loved a good wine and I said me too as long as it's cheap. We had a chuckle...

She was a real trooper and glamorous at 96. Just amazing!!!

Kisses, MargOH!

  2. Hi Phoebe,

    I know you have an affection for the wise and sassy seniors.

    What a life Kitty led. Just amazing.

    One other story. I went to see Liza get an award a few years back and Kitty presented it. She was a good friend of Judy's as well. I spoke with her during intermission and she told me that Judy and her use to play poker and drink champagne to the wee hours...how much fun...

    How ironic she caught a Fungai in Atlanta, Georgia....

    She was fabulous..

    Kisses, MargOH!
