Hi Dee Ho to all my darling prairie dogs!

Aspen fun with Winner Red Cup Scott, Miss R 1982 & ME!

Aspen fun with Winner Red Cup Scott, Miss R 1982 & ME!

What a fabulous winter I’m having! Here’s just a glimpse into my wonderful, glamorous, busy life!

I started the year in Aspen, adding color commentary to the already colorful downhill costume race. With 10 talented entries it was a difficult decision to find a winner. But it’s hard to argue with a good plastic red cup! Especially the way lovely Scott wore it! Yum!

And an honorable mention went to Miss Richfield 1982 who sailed down the hill in a lovely dress and sash, making all Minnesotans proud!

Atlantis Events LOVE on the high seas!

Then I motored off to the first Atlantis Events cruise of the season. We sailed out from Ft. Lauderdale and spent a week vacationing in the Third World. It was high homo fun on the high seas. Such a talented group of performers and my first official showing of my new show, “Cone of Silence!”

I stopped off in Los Angeles and Palm Springs for shows too. All lovely reviews received from my dear friends there!

Mexico? Hawaii? Is there a difference?

Mexico? Hawaii? Is there a difference?

And now I’m in Mexico, I think! It’s hard to tell. I’ve been wearing my favorite Hawaiian outfit with a sombrero, just in case I’m someplace else. It doesn’t really matter, because in a few days I’ll be heading down under for another Atlantis Events boat ride in New Zealand and Australia. I plan to see where they filmed “The Sound of Music” and then I’m heading back home to Minnie!

I’ll try to be more attentive to updating you on the fun. Next is Asia! So I’m getting out the chopsticks and soy sauce!

Happy, Merry Xmas to all my darling prairie dogs!

I’m in the middle of “Play With My Poodle For Christmas” my annual holiday extravaganza at the Illusion Theater in Minneapolis. Having wonderful time!

It’s certainly been a whirlwind holiday season for Miss R media! I was recently celebrating with Brad & Colleen on FM 107 and Rob Hartmann and Chris Hewitt in the St. Paul Pioneer Press and my friend Basil Considine TC Daily Planet. Everyone has been so kind and all seem to be fans of the poodle!

But the most memorable was this year’s stint on KMSP TV’s Buzz last week. I make an annual appearance during the holidays and always have such fun on the boob tube! I simply love Tom, Keith and MA! So when I cuddled on the coach and wrapped my arms around Keith Marler, I was a bit surprised to find my gum on the shoulder of his suit coat.

All fresh and live on TV. Well, actually the gum was from the night before, but the experience was lovely.

We also played Holiday Pictionary, which Keith and I won, and started their annual viewer tree decorating. It was a hoot! I’m having a great season and send my wishes to all of you for a great and blessed holiday season.

See your families. Call your mothers. Be a blessing to someone today!

Celebrating Summer & Planning My Fall!

Billie Jean & Ilana & me!

Billie Jean & Ilana & me!

Hello to all my darling prairie dogs!

I am celebrating a fabulous summer as I leave old Cape Cod, Rehoboth Beach and Portsmouth! Many thanks to those who visited and saw my quality program “Play With My Poodle.”

The audience prize, however, goes to my new friends Billie Jean and Ilana. What a thrill to have a couple of athletic, well-toned gals, like myself, attend the show. I offered to sneak them in for free, because I can’t imagine playing tennis pays very well, but they insisted on buying tickets!

Other than Billie and Ilana, it was pretty much the ordinary riff raff from New Jersey, Long Island, Springfield, Northampton, Philly, and always my fans from Newton (Shalom!) – all of whom I adore!

As I prepare to leave this sleepy fishing village, I realize it’s time to update you on my fall agenda. I will be touring to Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, LA, Palm Springs – and of course, my dear, fun Atlantis cruise and Puerto Vallarta resort events!

Check out the date book to see where the Greyhound takes me next!

Beauty On the Beach!

Which is the real beauty queen?!?

Hello to all my darling prairie dogs!

I’m loving the sunshine, sea & sand, as I frolic in my two-piece and celebrate summer in Ptown, Rehoboth Beach and Portsmouth. What a lucky lady!

This amazing sand monument was crafted earlier in May on the beaches of Cancun, where the Mexicans do such a professional and thorough job. And as flattered as I was at the precision of this sculpture, I think it makes me look a bit heavy. But I didn’t complain, since no one would understand me!

Now speaking of beaches, I’ll be enjoying a lot of them this summer and hope you are planning to join me up and down the Eastern Seaboard. I never tire of this work in such lovely surroundings with such lovely people.

And please, please don’t let the weather scare you. It’s been a crazy winter and spring! Just follow my lead – put on your yellow slicker, wear your highest shoes, pull the chinstrap down, so your hair doesn’t fly off and head into the fresh ocean wind like Jesus is blowing in your face!

Ptown show tickets now on sale!

Rainbows are everywhere in Ptown

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!

Poodlin’ it Up!

Image 1Hello to all my darling prairie dogs!

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!

Cruisin’ with Modest Friends!

Modest friends!

Everybody sails on Carnival!

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!

XO and one for Jesus,

Miss R
