Rainbows are everywhere in Ptown!

Hello to all my darling prairie dogs!

Today I sit at my kitchen table, sipping a re-warmed cup of Sanka and eating the other half of a Danish from yesterday, as I watch the ice melting off my trailer! There is nothing better than hearing the sheets of frozen water slide down the aluminum roof and smash onto the cinder blocks at my front door.

It’s springtime in Richfield! Now I must take the plastic off the windows, tune up the Huffy 3-speed, and take down the Nativity scene from the front hitch of my home.

It also means that the ladies at A Mighty Fortress Is Our God Lutheran Church in Richfield, my home congregation, will purchase a Greyhound Bus ticket for Ptown – one way! It’s strange that this annual tradition seems to bring them as much joy as it does me – and I’m the only one who’s leaving!

Tickets are on sale now for my new show, “Play With My Poodle,” at the Crown & Anchor in the Paramount from Memorial Day until the middle of September! Good heavens, I’d stay longer, but generally I’m so homesick for Richfield that I must get back by October before the first snow fall.

So please keep an eye out in the next week or so, as I’ll be jotting notices and details of other favorite summer activities! I’ll be at the Blue Moon in Rehoboth Beach 3 times this summer, a couple dates at the Music Hall Loft in Portsmouth, and singing with the Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus too! More details on each of those special places and faces later!

XO and one to Jesus!

Good news to report from Richfield, as I’m just launching my brand new show! “Play with My Poodle” will be coming your way soon.

Working on a new show is so exciting and such a great way to start out a new year, after spending a traditional holiday season here in Richfield. Our first-ring suburb has become a many-colored-quilt, so we celebrate all the Christmases – the Chanukah, the Kwanzaii, and recently a healthy Ramadan contingent brings a Muslim Christmas to the local streets. It’s all fun until someone starts counting backwards!

I marked my New Year with a resolution to find a man! So this year’s show is based on finding Mr. Richfield, Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now! We’ll see who shows up!

I’m so excited to be traveling again with Atlantis Events, as well as making stops in Philly, DC, Chicago, then starting my summer in Rehoboth Beach, DE, at the Blue Moon and doing an all-summer extravaganza with my pals at the Crown & Anchor in Ptown!

I’m also joining the Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus for a June Pride concert back in Minnie! Whew! I gotta get my beauty rest, which means I should have gone to bed in 1978. Such fun! Such a joy! I hope you’ll consult my calendar for details and tickets!

Hello to all my darling prairie dogs!

I’m in the midst of a glorious time in Mexico! I love it south of the border, where the Mexican folk always have the welcome mat out – occasionally no door – but always a mat.

This is my favorite time of year with two weeks at a lovely resort in Puerto Vallarta and one week on a homo cruise to God-knows-where with Atlantis Events!

Then I get home to celebrate a traditional Richfield Thanksgiving! Then my Illusion Theater holiday show! Then Christmas! Then the Blue Moon in Rehoboth Beach, DE. It’s so many, many reasons to dress up and look nice – both things that come naturally for me!

Along with these prestigious performances, my holiday season will be marked by a new cheese log recipe that I clipped from McCall’s in 1978, when cheese was more popular. I’ve been holding onto it for years, as I’ve been blocked up since the early 80′s. Now with a high-fiber diet and an extra cup of Sanka in the morning, I feel like this could be the year.

I’ll fill you in, as I work it out!

Hello to all my darling prairie dogs!

San Fran, here I come! I can’t believe a whole year has passed since I’ve been to St. Aidan’s Church in the Motherland! I’m making my return on Sat, Oct. 26th, and tickets are available right now! See the info to the right of this article.

How glorious to be reunited with Rev. Tommy and his wonderful and generous parishioners. It’s a great place to entertain on Saturday and a wonderful experience to worship on Sunday morning.

But I can’t stay for services this time, as I’ll be boarding the Greyhound bound for Tijuana! And there I’ll transfer to El Mexicana De Buso, which is Mexican for Greyhound. It’s pretty much the same, but your luggage goes on top of the bus and you can bring up to 3 chickens, as long as they’re in crates or on leashes.

I must get to Puerto Vallarta and join the homos of Atlantis Events for a sun-drenched beach holiday. The best news is that this year is twice as long – and that’s always good to hear. Two weeks in a lovely resort filled with buffets and Lyrcra and music and fun, fun, fun!

Then it’s back to LA for an Atlantis Events cruise to – of all places – Mexico!

I just never tire of the Third World.

Hello to all my darling prairie dogs!

Good heavens, where did the summer go?!? I enjoyed an absolutely lovely time in Provincetown and Rehoboth Beach and Portsmouth and even Des Moines this summer!

So I haven’t been typing on my portable Smith Corona! I hope you’ll forgive me!

One of the highlights this summer was going to the lovely City of Philadelphia and taping a television commercial. We toured the city at the end of June and filmed in all sorts of areas, including the Rocky steps, the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross House, Boathouse Row, and Independence Hall, which is pictured here!

The purpose of the ad was to attract homo visitors to Philly. (Personally, I think they’d have better luck just handing out drink tickets!)

So watch on Logo, Bravo and even the SciFy channel. Or just go to Visitphilly.com/gay and you’ll be able to watch me in action. Be careful! Watching this ad will definitely make you want to visit Philly and maybe even become a homo yourself!

Many thanks to my buddies Meryl, Bruce and Betsy at Greater Philadelphia Tourism and Nancy, Chris and Eric at Nancy Glass Productions. What a blast!

Smooch and one to Jesus!

Hello to all my prairie dogs!

Goodness it has been busy. I just got off the bus from Hong Kong! Let me tell you, that is a trip I don’t want to make more than 3 times a year.

But I did fall in love with the Orient! What a magnificent country, filled with a population all under a size 6. I traveled with Atlantis Events and we stopped at 7 ports in Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and ended in Hong Kong.

It was especially interesting that each time we got off the ship, the same 12 people met us at the port. I asked how they got from one place to another and they never answered! I guess it’s one of those “ancient Chinese secrets!”

So today I’m pulling down my chinstrap and getting ready to head out to Chicago, where the Windy City waits for my return! I’ll be joining the those talented fellows of the Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus for the Big Package Auction. Everybody’s welcome to attend – see details in my calendar!

I’m also preparing for a big summer in Ptown, MA, and Rehoboth Beach, DE, and Portsmouth, NH.

But even more imminent is my favorite holiday of the year – Arbor Day on April 26. Thank God it falls on a Friday this year! I trust many of you will make it a 3-day weekend! I love the holiday, but even more, I love April 27th, when all of the Arbor Day merchandise is 50 percent off. Make your calendars!

I Gotta Heart On For You!

I Gotta Heart On For You!

Hello to all my darling prairie dogs:

I hope you’re all experiencing a lot of love this month! I’m spending this Valentine’s Day with the one I love best – me! That’s right, I usually hit the buffet with my mother and dad, but this time I’m on the road to many places across the country and the world with my new show “Sweet & Sour Richfield – Made in China.”

In this all-new program, I am jumping on the latest American trend – outsourcing.  As I am always a “glass-is-not-completely-empty” gal, I embrace the opportunity to work internationally! So I’m good with China, India, Canada, or any other Third World communist country!

Currently I’m on my way to Australia, which will be great to finally see where they filmed the “Sound of Music.” Actually, we start in New Zealand and then motor to Aussie land for fun in the sun. My only concern is being upside down for that whole 10 days! I’m not sure what that’ll do to my gas problem, but I’m thinking my hair will be large and in charge, just the way I like it!

Do plan to see my shows in Philly & Ft Lauderdale. Or come to one of the special events, such as the Queer & Sober Bingo on St. Patty’s Day in NYC or “The Big Package Auction” for the Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus on Sat, April 20, or “The 2nd Annual Diva Ball” for the Denver Gay Men’s Chorus on Sat, May 4.

So much FUN!! I love you all and will be posting more details and links soon!

XO and one for Jesus (who gave us the first Valentine’s Day – or was that Easter?!?)
