    The 44th Kennedy Center Honors December 5, 2021

    The 43rd Honors (postponed fom 2020) were held in May of this year in a virtual and much reduced in-person version and now the 44th will return in full form on December 5th.

    Just received the requirements: fully vaccinated and RT PCR within 72 hours of the event. Masks on at all times except when eating at the late night supper.

    Quite the lineup of honorees!


    Justino Díaz, Berry Gordy, Lorne Michaels, Bette Midler, and Joni Mitchell

    Saw Bette in Fiddler, saw her show in NYC in DIVINE MADNESS when she entered stage right as a mermaid, AND HERE ON St Barths where we dined at a nearby table on the same night at The Wall House.

    Who do you think will show up at the Honors to honor her?

    OMG, I left out the last revival of HELLO DOLLY in NYC a couple of years ago…Marvelous and delightful as Dolly Levi.

    . . . was there too, & through a fluke in box office ticketing, wound-up second row center seat. Every grand play that Bette made to the audience included, a “wink” to me, it seemed. In many years of Broadway performances, the BEST ever!

    We once had a memorable dinner at Franck's Wall House Restaurant in Gustavia and Bette was that close to us.
