Prom dresses and the best joke ever.

  • Print

I saw an info-graph the other day that showed the average cost for a prom in the west was nearly $800.  That is for a limo ride, dinner, flowers, tux and dress.  WOW!.  It reminded me to get the word out about Cinderella's closet.  It's project from the Assistance League to provide dresses for those who need.  Then I was turned on to this gal's story. 

She's made her own prom dress the last 3 years.  One was made out of pop tabs, another from Dorito bags, this year it is was made from cardboard.

  Tracy was reminiscing about his Jr. Prom date he picked her up in the family's Olds Dynamic, "gold with red interior".

"We had a lover's lane" I told him......he said we had "lots of peach orchards."  It could have been that peach orchard where he started his comedic career with the best joke ever
