Guardian angel Sandra Smythers

Marlyn will agree that volunteer Sandra Smythers went beyond the call of duty. She went to hell and back to find what was needed, like when I ran out of photos, she drove to find a place that would get them done pronto and how would I have gotten dressed to make it on to the stage? She was definitely my guardian angel!


My buddies Caroline and Dr. Fred Eichleman and Kit and Shannon

Speaking of guardian angels, this was old home week. My buddies Caroline and Dr. Fred Eichleman and Kit and Shannon drove in from Roanoke, VA. Kit and Shannon have come to my aid at many conventions. What would I have done without them? It was so great to have them around again.

Donna Fargo was presented with the Ernie Tubbs Award

With Dr. Fred

Dr. Fred thought it would be a fun idea for me to perform my club act at the Awards Banquet as I once did at his Rising Star Point North event. I protested at first, but figured it was time to get off my duff and do something. Fun to see the surprised look on the faces of my peers.

With Eddie Wallace

How adorable Eddie "The Sunshine Boys" Wallace was when he performed a most impressive piano solo, plus told jokes I'd never heard... and the funniest.


With my publicist Michael Marx

My old friend and publicist Michael Marx is responsible for getting all of us to the WFF.

With Mike Forest

There were four TOS actors there. Recognize TOS buddy Michael "Apollo" Forest?


With Dottie

Sweet Dottie is responsible for my being here at this convention. We met at another con in Asheville, where she insisted I come to Winston-Salem. What a gal!
