Before I get to this week’s column, an update on my interview with the awesome Fannie Flagg . . . it was AMAZING!!! (And now she wants to talk every day! Hahahaha!) There is big- BIG news she told me I will share with you next week that will make you so SAD, but hold on till then, and I”ll pull all the details together.
Also, one other quick housekeeping note, my ability to comment on other blogs has been going crazy lately. While I have no trouble with some, others (mainly blogger format, but not all) just won’t let me comment, so to all my blogging friends, please know I haven’t been ignoring you, I just can’t leave you a note!

Thank you Leslie Anne, I wish you could read this tale on national TV! People have gone crazy and it’s not good for any of us!
