The boys and I are having a Breakfast at Tiffany's Weekend! Once I finished up Elizabeth George's A Banquet of Consequences...I moved on to the Breakfast at Tiffany's Official 50th Anniversay Companion by Sarah Gristwood.
Never having read the Truman Capote novelette, this all began with my intention to purchase it.
I ended up going to hell with myself and never actually buying that book. (It's on the list for the next round.)
I actually made a haul of other items that were not the novelette.
I'm now loaded down with notecards, a journal, and 3 notebooks in addition to my anniversary edition.
It's been fun for me.
I'm learning about the history of the movie, its stars, and of course...the birth of OUR song: Moon River by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer.
I particularly loved seeing the note that Audrey Hepburn wrote to Henri Mancini, thanking "dear Hank."
It's particularly poignant because Moon River (a la me and Monsieur Winkelmann) has been serenading Cadrieu all weekend.
Friday, Les Archives Imaginaire began at the Festival de Madistan at the Chateau de Cadrieu.
We were up first in the series that includes interviews and art. Our interview segment was set to Monsieur Winkelmann and I playing Moon River!
To say I was "full" and touched is an understatement. Much more on the Festival and Les Archives Imaginaire tomorrow. For now, I'm going to keep reading. I might need to take a break to play a little Moon River on my Monsieur.
It's looking like our Ollie Boy may be a little more of a Huckleberry Friend than Opie.
