I WAS SO HONORED TO SPEND TIME WITH HIM
Reverend Graham was receiving an award from a certain organization, and he was due in the lobby at 6 p.m. People were assigned to meet him at that time. At 5:15 p.m., Reverend Graham, all alone, walked into the lobby. The greeting committee wasn't there. The lobby was empty.
I happened to walk by at that moment, couldn't believe what I was seeing, and went right over to him. I took his hand and introduced myself and welcomed him. I asked him to sit in the lobby, but I didn't want to leave him to go get anyone.
I literally sat and talked with him, one-on-one for 45 minutes! It WAS truly a gift from God. I have never met ANYONE like him. He looks at you, right into your soul, and you want to cry. It was like looking into the face of God. He took away all fear, made you feel special, and, most of all, listened to you, digesting every word.
We talked about our childhoods, religions, our troubled world (even then), and how to get to Heaven. His eyes lit up talking about heaven. He was ecstatic about his journey that he KNEW would have a happy ending.
It's very hard to describe what was happening inside me as he spoke. He would occasionally take my hand. I was on the verge of tears the entire time. Reverend Graham had enveloped me with a light. I felt the warmth. I felt the safety. I really can't find any more words to describe it.
I was blessed and received a miracle.
A beautiful picture was taken of us that night. I'm in a different city tonight and not able to have access to the photo to put it in the blog.
God bless you, dear Billy. So glad you're Home.

SLOWLY BUT SURELY I HAVE BEEN HEARING FROM FRIENDS, AS WELL AS READING SOME "INCONSPICUOUS ARTICLES" THAT PEOPLE ARE TURNING OFF "THIS IS US."
ADD ME TO THAT LIST.
I can no longer subject myself to an hour of depressive whiners. These are characters who are frequently gloomy and so stressed out by life and circumstance, that it's the biggest downer TV show I've ever seen.
I have watched every episode since the beginning, and still retain 100% respect for the talented writers, actors, and directors. It is quality TV, for sure, and very inventive.
I just don't want it in my life or psyche anymore. Depressive programming doesn't appeal to me. I don't need to be "moved" like that. Instead, it is off my DVR series list, and I'll have even more time to be happy looking at beautiful skies and loving my life.

CHITA RIVERA AND TOMMY TUNE DID THEIR CONCERT SHOW "CHITA AND TUNE" TO A SOLD-OUT CROWD AT THE MCCALLUM THEATRE IN PALM DESERT.
Seeing a show of true professionals, who are legends, actually made me tear up. There were no back-up dancers, flashing lights, or autotune----just pure talent on stage. What a pleasure. They are touring the country now with this show, and they open it together, then they each take turns with a couple of numbers, and then performer together, and REPEAT!
Note: Neither one of these icons is 22, and, boy do they still have it. Simply delicious. Their dance steps were perfection.

|My turn. I just love Tab and Allan|
The montage of pictures of Tab and Chita is so sweet.
|Lucie, Tommy, and Don Amendolia all did "My One and Only" together.|
Chita and I were reminiscing about nights at Joe Tremaine's house.

IT'S TIME TO GET REAL. IF YOU'RE LIKE ME, IT'S IMPORTANT TO FIND THE RIGHT TOILET PAPER. IT'S ALL ABOUT SOFT, HARD, FLUFF, QUILT, TEXTURE, ONE-PLY, TWO-PLY, etc. However, there is the unspoken "issue with tissue"------unwanted residue. Yes, I said it. You all know exactly what I'm talking about.
In order to solve this problem, I went to the market and bought one roll of almost every toilet paper on the market. In my "personal scientific study of one," I judged each brand.
Cottonelle feels great. How I wish it didn't leave residue. I heard recently that they came out with a new brand called COTTONELLE CLEAN, to eliminate the problem. THEY'RE LYING. IT DOESN'T WORK. It's the WORST.
Again, Charmin Soft feels the best of all the toilet papers. It's even an anticipated treat. BUT, the residue is almost as bad as Cottonelle's.
|Charmin Ultra Strong IS THE WINNER BY A LANDSLIDE. It's not quite as soft as Charmin Soft, but I don't care.|
|A lot of people swear by Quilted Northern. Nice feel; lots of residue. Sorry.|
