    Among the many moments I’ve shared with Elaine Stritch is a memorable New Year’s Eve in the mid-60’s. It was dinner time and I was alone in my apt on 56th St with no party to go to. Okay. Enjoy the night. Call friends and leave messages wishing them a great new year. The first person I called was Elaine. I was shocked when she answered the phone. She was alone, too. No party to go to. After stammering for a few minutes, I summoned the courage to ask if she’d like to share the dinner I was making. In 30 minutes, she showed up at my door with her traditional black tights and long-sleved shirt underneath a mink coat. We wined, dined, and laughed all night. ALL NIGHT! It was the best New Year’s Eve party I ever experienced. Thanks for an amazing ride, Elaine. – Grover Dale, ‘Sail Away’ 1960
