My, My, My It's Rona!

** Post Title to be read to the tune of The Knack's "My Sharona"




While desperately trying to correct my severe caffeine deficiency this morning, I was leafing through the morning paper and saw that Rona Barrett is doing a one woman show tonight at the The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills!  Well you can imagine my bleary eyed shock.  My first thought was, 'is she still alive' (which was my same mental exclamation two weeks ago at the news of Art Linkletter's passing).  My second thought was, 'christ, she must be a hundred years old.'  Well guess what.  She's only 73.  So, does this mean I'm younger than I think, or older than I think?

"My first thought was, 'is she still alive'"? My thoughts exactly!

bet her show would be interesting, though that nasal drone of hers could put a coked up puppy to sleep.

I met her once at the Dance Center L.A.
She was tiny... & she was standing next to Nancy Walker!

OMG Stephen, I met Nancy Walker once. Don't tell me that Rona was even shorter than her!
