      Good morning to you and the happiest of New Year’s! I think one of those fellows might be a certain Haldeman, grandpa to a rather infamous character from the Nixon era… Other members included Spencer Tracy, Milton Berle, Darryl Zanuck, and more judges and lawyers than you can shake a stick at. It was a benevolent society but I think their initial aim in organizing was to skirt Prohibition.

        Skirt it? Looks like the put on the whole Drag the night before! Hugs from sunny but cold San Francisco.

        Yes! They did like to dress up and sing and cavort! They even bought a club house/compound out near the beach where they could frolic like they were in summer camp. I think I have some pix of their costume events…

    When men were men! Happy New Year to you Vicki, having so much fun catching up with your wonderfully beguiling tales, all of which leave me wanting to know so much MORE!

    We felt all aldous huxley about being in rustic canyon and then found out its real history 😉
