PS Tom and I went to Paul VI together. it’s always so fun to run into him at Komen events. Komen is very near and dear to his heart, and he and his fiance Michele do so much for the organization. He was one of the best dressers in high school, looking dapper above as well; as well as super nice.

PS PhillyChitChat readers, sorry I missed Wednesday. Thanks for visiting as I see the numbers were still high. As you know Social Season is kicking my butt. So many events. Tonight oh my, The Philly Mag Whiskey Fest at the Linc. Bruce Willis is being honored by the Phila Film Society, and it’s rumored the whole Glass crew will be there, sadly not me, I’m photographing what is going to be one of the coolest Halloween Masquerade parties this year, and in the future – Prospero’s Ball at La Peg. PhillyChitChat’s Mike Hirata will be shooting Timothy’s School Austic Fundraiser in the burbs and there are a lot of other fun parties happening tonight. This weekend I’ll be shooting 2 events Friday, 3 on Saturday, working all day Sunday, then 2 events on Monday. It’s all fun, and I love bringing it to you. I will again promise to not miss a day, I hate when I do that too. Thanks HughE
