A bow to you, Mike Adams

Not only is 2007 Holiday in Dixie Cotillion King Mike Adams a dapper dresser, but he is famous for his bow ties.

Soooo....it was easy for the past kings to come up with a way to greet him April 20 at the Cotillion at Municipal Auditorium.

Wear bow ties.

But not just any bow.

Oh, no. These were polka dotted and oversized, stretching almost from shoulder to shoulder. As he turned the corner on the floor and spotted them, he turned on the Adams grin.

And turned the tables on his fellow kings.

Holding a gold toasting cup or chalice as a pretense to toasting, he tossed it up, out and over the courtly crew. They were doused with glittery confetti.

It was the latest in courtly greetings to the new royal.

J. Pat Beaird is in charge of it all. A line up of past kings: Dr. Dick Drummond (down the front row, starting far left), John Nelson, Claude Rives, Dr. Lacy Williams, Shelby Smith and Steve Walker.

Newsy royal note: Rives is building a house in Oxford, Miss., because he loves the town and the Ole Miss doin’s so much. So he’ll be in and out of there as well as home sweet home Shreveport.
