Fly high, my twin sister of a different cul-de-sac....

I am numb. Processing the sudden loss of Peggy Platt, my dear friend, comedy partner, feminist sister and firebrand. Together as Dos Fallopia, we survived and thrived as a comedy duo for 28 years. Not together quite as long…

Legally married in WA!

Lynn and I had our big "wedding" ceremony back in 2008-- we invited a boatload of people, pitched a giant circus tent, ate a lot of food, spent an enormous amount of money and had a grand ol' time.  Marriage…

2013, what th...?

Just got back from a great 2 weeks on Olivia's 40th anniversary cruises.  Got to laugh, sing, and jam with my funny and talented pals.  Highlight:  meeting tennis great Billie Jean King, whoo hoo!  Getting all the performers, staff and…

Another "Ham" in the can

Happy holidays to all!

Another "Ham" in the can, Lordy.  "Ham for the Holidays: Wham Bam, Thank You Ham!" was a big success, even with the crappy economy affecting ticket sales.  We had a great run, thank you SO much…
