I know I need to get more regular in my blogging, my peeps. But I’m just running around so much. So I’m just going to wander a bit, but you know what, it’s my blog. ha ha ha ha ha haaaaa.
So let’s deal with the fact that I have been in a helicopter twice since I wrote to you all. WHAT???!!! Yes, it’s true. The first time was Sept. 23. I took some pics to show you. We arrived at the pick-up site which was on the grounds of the Hildebrand Winery and the actual copter (that’s what we professional helicopterers call the helicopter – oh, yeah, I’m very connected) is not very big as you can see.

2. I am doing a solo Christmas cabaret on SUNDAY, DEC. 16 at Tallulah’s Cabaret at Buddies In Bad Times. I LOOOVE CHRISTMAS!! It’s been years since I’ve done a Christmas show. There will be some familiar songs done in unfamiliar ways. A special visitor or two. Some cheer, some camp, some laughs, some surprises. Come on, IT’S CHRISTMAS!!!!!
I hope everyone can come. I will give more details of where and when as everything gets ironed out. And if you’re wondering if it’s a lot of the same material in both . . . please, would I do that to you my children?
