Our Retro Pic of the (George) Day is a Valentine of sorts.

It takes us back to the stage of the 1975 Freshman Follies when Ward Tietz, class president, got all dolled up with a hula skirt, coconut shell top and a festive cigar to help your own Rumson-Fair Haven Retrospect editor and best friend, since deceased Stephanie DeSesa, do a rendition of South Pacific’s “Honey Bun.”

Considering the regalia, spirit and setting, this one’s a warmer upper on yet another chilly day.

Though, poor Ward Tietz ended up with a very itchy rash from those coconuts.

Who’s your Honey Bun?

Oh, and many thanks, again, to the fabulous George Day for yet another treasure of a photo.
