Stay happy! Stay healthy! Stay home!


MR at GW in DC!

Hello to all my darling prairie dogs!

I jot down my correspondence today from my kitchen table in my trailer. It’s a bit of an adjustment, since I haven’t been home for an entire week since 1974.

But I’m getting used to it, after my last, glorious gig in Washington DC last Saturday with the DC Different Drummers. Celebrating their 40th season, this horn-tooting, gifted gaggle has symphonic, jazz and marching bands that play and march throughout the year.


Cherrie, my stylist at sea!

I carefully donned protective clothing for the show that went on as scheduled, thanks to George Washington University staying open until we left on Saturday night. The gates made a loud clank behind me, as I walked to the bus depot and boarded that dirty dog to get home.

Making adjustments seems to be the rule for this year, as earlier in February I spent 6 days on a cruise ship in New Zealand with no luggage! None!


Miss R is always in good company!

But the show must go on, so I borrowed clothes and donned new hair designed by Cherrie at the beauty salon aboard the Holland America Noordam. I also purchased a saw from a local hardware store! I love a challenge!

And I would do all that again and again, rather than not working! This spring is looking bleak, with my Atlantis Events cruise cancelled and other fun shows and appearances rescheduled. I’m still holding onto my bus ticket for Ptown this summer. Nothing will be allowed to interrupt our fun summer madness on old Cape Cod.


RBG & me, in real proportions!

We’ll be celebrating Ptown’s 400th anniversary, which only comes around every few years!

So, in the meantime, our job is to stay healthy and ensure that our friends and family stay well too! That means hunkering down and staying put at all cost! I’ve even taken my cosmetic bag, therapeutic pantyhose, and platform shoes and locked them in the janitor’s closet at church, so I won’t be tempted to run out to do another show!

But you don’t have to be lonely! Remember, if you can’t have the real deal, there are always bobbleheads awaiting delivery to your home to keep you company during this solitary time!

XO and one for Jesus!

Miss R

  1. Miss R, happy to hear you’re at home and safe. We’re all disappointed about the cruise, I suspect the whole thing is a plan to keep the homos at home! See you in PTown this summer…we will rise again!

      • I sing love everyday. Can you believe that I turned 53 on February 15th? I feel old, but thank goodness I do not look my age. We are doing everything we can from being bored. The only time we are going out is to our doctor and to get some groceries. Love You!

  2. Dear Miss Richfield: If anyone can spread the love and humor, it’s you. You always make us smile, even in the face of…this…We hope to see you in Providencetown this summer, if not sooner. We love you!
