Recently we had a nice visit with Fred and Bobbie Eierman, whom we had met on the fan cruise to Alaska back in...a while ago. It took them 7 days to drive their RV all the way from the east coast to Medford, enroute to Alaska. Meri fixed a nice dinner, I played some tunes and we just had a great visit. It made us all feel warm and fuzzy to know that a friendship that was kindled via a mutual love of music can endure across time and distance.
And now back to name dropping for a sec: tonight I played at a private party and among the guests was Kim Novak, the actress. And I have to say, for an 82-year-old woman she looks great! Yeah, I know - plastic surgery, but still - she carries herself well and comes off as much younger. I'll admit to being a little star-struck.
