A while ago - the cell phone rang. It was the gang in Cleveland!!!!!!!!! They were at the hotel getting ready to have dinner. I want to tell you something gang - You could go around the world twice and never find a nicer, more caring, loving, wonderful, thoughtful group of people. It was like getting to meet my family for the first time. Even though I didn't get to be there - I got to hear their voices. I closed my eyes and listened to each and every one of the gals and a few of the men - and it was just the next best thing ever to finally after nearly nine years - hear their voices. (getting choked up here) - You are all so lovely! I'm sorry I am not there. I am sure like Abbey told me - YOU ARE ALL REALLY RUNNING AMOCK! AND JANET - despite trying to hide the sparkers, and twirley tassles and donkey - you're getting a riding crop for Christmas! (giddy yup). It was my pleasure to speak with each and every one of you - and thank you so much for taking the time to pass me around the table and say hello. You're all such a treasure - and more of a family that you'll ever know. I would say by now - they are laughing and having such a grand time and I couldn't think of a finer group of friends who deserve it more. Ladies - ENJOY YOURSELVES & thanks for the love. Hugs & Love Star And SOMEONE - GET A PICTURE OF THE DANCING DONKEYS - were you guys pushing my foot or something? NEXT YEAR........MURDER MYSTERY TRAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
