Hello to all my darling prairie dogs!
What a glorious summer season for this beauty professional!
It started in May, when the lovely and historic Pilgrim House in Ptown welcomed me as my new home with my new show, “Born Again.” The response was kind and financially sound, permitting me to set the cat food aside this fall and enjoy my tuna from Bumble Bee rather than Purina.
Such wonderful news only gets better when you see I rubbed shoulders, or rather over-processed hair (see photo), with Miss Peggy Lee. She was performing with the mega-talented Liberace, who I did not get to meet. Lee seemed a bit preoccupied with Tea Dances and getting a tour of Dick’s Dock, wherever that is!
Not all my new friends were elderly, like the two Lees, I made a bunch of new pals when Camp Lightbulb attended my show (see photo). This nice group gives me hope that all will be fine if we just leave the future up to our young people!
Carnival Week celebrated a 40th anniversary this year (see photo). I was honored, along with only 39 others, as grand marshals of the parade, floating my way down Commercial Street for the 3rd year in a row with my pals from Boston Harbor Cruises (see photo).
It may surprise you, but I also carve out some “me time,” when I frequent Essentials. This compact, yet luxurious store is run by my friend Laura and is a much-needed respite after a grueling evening with the masses. The patrons of this convenient boutique are often most fashionable and interesting, such as my artist friend David (see photo), who designed and purchased from the Stop and Shop a cake with my photo!
Also I must give thanks to my wonderful sponsors, Palm Springs Gay Tourism, Orbitz and Atlantis Events, for making, not only my summer fabulous, but my whole year a financial joy!
NOW SEE WHAT’S NEXT: I’ll be in San Diego at Martini’s Above Fourth Wed & Thur, Oct. 10-11, Atlantis Events Mexican Riviera Cruise Oct 14-21, Palm Springs Cultural Center Sat, Nov 3, and Club Atlantis Vallarta Nov 4-10. Then home for the holidays at the Illusion Theater in Minneapolis Nov 30 – Dec 22.
Whew, a review of that schedule makes me realize I need to secure my girdle and rinse out my pantyhose – pronto!
XO and one for Jesus,
