Gatsby Gone

I've been in love with The Great Gatsby since the first time I read it. Only to fall in love with the characters even deeper when I watched the movie. Robert Redford and Mia Farrow were the perfect people to play Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan. Sam Waterson is one of my favorite actors, he was great on the original Law and Order, and his portrayal of Nick Caraway was exactly like I imagined it while reading the book.
I was sad to hear today that the Mansion of inspiration is being demolished! Apparently its beyond repair and the owners can't see spending the small fortune it would take to repair it.

This is the actual mansion that was the inspiration for Jay Gatsby's estate

The movie version was a little different, but still similar

These two were made for each other

True Love!

Okay no more mushiness, I am off to shower and get ready for work.
Yes, I am blogging before work. That's what happens when insomnia kicks in and makes sleep a thing of the past. Even with the rain I am still not in the least bit sleepy. That isn't to say that I am not tired. Actually I am exhausted, but sleepy...not so much!
