    Just finished watching the Emmy’s!
    I’m as “STAR FREAK.”
    Is this part of your job?
    tell me more?
    Were you in the audience?
    SO COOL.

    1. I’m so glad you liked this post. In LA for Andrea Bocelli concert and staying right up the street from LA Live at a great boutique hotel–The O. If you like stars though, the concert was being taped for PBS and there were appearances by John Travolta, Andy Garcia, Ryan O’Neal, Ali MacGraw…

  2. I missed watching the regular Emmies. The Fox listings aren’t on my personal channel list. I like your Emmies. I haven’t been to LA in a hundred years. See you soon.

    1. Hi Lee. My Emmies were a blast. I had so much fun in California and am now wondering why I don’t live there. LOL. The weather was perfect, no humidity, no insects, friendly and helpful people, lots of entertainment…I could go on and on!! Looking forward to seeing you real soon. Take care.
