Vermont, George and I knew that Nicole Fosse, the
beautiful dancer who had studied and danced with my
daughters, was going to meet us on the Trail - we were
just not sure exactly where. "Don't worry", she said,
"I know the Trail". Coming over a rise I suddenly saw
a lovely young woman, sitting on a rock in "The Lotus
Position", feeding and cooing to her 4 month-old baby.
This was Nicole - the ease and natural beauty of the
scene just took my breath away.
had hiked into the Trail to meet us and has fruit
juice and goodies ready to refresh us in her Jeep
parked just down the road. She drove us to her
beautiful home to met her husband, 2 other gorgeous
children and to meet her charming mother, Gwen Verdon,
the legendary star of stage and screen, who happened
to be visiting that week. I will admit I am a bit
"star struck" by Gwen - she is just so WONDERFUL! And
what does she do? She starts cooking for me! Boiling
up beautiful shrimp...filling my glass with wine,
fussing over me! It was overwhelming! What a welcome!
and that dinner we had! Such fun! Old stories about
Nicole's father (the late Bob Fosse) and sharing
embarrassing moments we had all experienced on stage.
George and I got back on the Trail with wonderful
memories - such love - such fun! Thank you
