Greetings to you All (even Tiny Tim) !,

How is it possible that we are already in December?!?!?
I swear it was just September and I was bitching about the lousy summer weather we had here in the Northwest and, I know, I know, I am still complaining….

I wanted to take this opportunity (as I am home ill with the grip that seems to be gripping our little fishing village en masse) to let you all know what the hell I am up to the next month, in hopes that I will get to see your charming faces at one or all of the following events.

December 5th – Toys For Ta-Ta’s- A Burlesque Benefit Show
The name pretty much spells it out, you bring gifts (and pay an uncover charge), you get to see our Ta Ta’s , and incidentally our other talents too.
