Here I am looking 25, at the opening to the big dining room. That's a Carleton Watkins photo on the wall--these photos have hung in the Wawona since before 1900. That's Yvette and Isolda (diningroom manager & hostess) going over the evening's battle plan. Note that the floors were gloriously un-carpeted. My costumey garb is a holdover from my previous job as pianist at JoAnne's Chili Bordello, in southern Cal.
