"The Bitch Is Back"

Hey guys, I'm back home!!!  I had a wonderful time on my family vacation.  Thanks for all the well wishes while I was away.  MANY pictures to follow, I promise.

I flew in at 7:00 a.m. this morning - - Don't say it - - dropped off my bags at my office and went directly to the AIDS Walk and I have incredible news: the two teams walking for Season of Concern have raised $17,394!!!  That total is a combination of pledges and each team members registration fees because the AIDS Foundation of Chicago gives 100% everything our team earns directly to Season of Concern INCLUDING the registration fees!!!  

Our goal was $15,000 and the total keeps rising!  

Thank you to everyone who donated to our team and a special thanks to all our team members who walked with me today!  Again, MANY pictures to follow! 

Next up for Season of Concern?  The touring company of MAMMA MIA which is currently here in Chicago is performing this Monday night at 3160 (3160 N. Clark) in a special cabaret benefit concert of 60's for SOC.  The show starts at 8:00 p.m. and it's only $20, so all you Chicagoans, come join me.

Next up for me?  Unpacking, admiring my once-a-year tan, sorting through pictures and adding a couple of new videos of my mom to my YouTube channel.  They are redneck fabulous!!!
