Carol Burnett at the Bass
I got out on the town tonite to see Carol Burnett at the Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth. Bonnie came up with the idea several months ago, and we got our tickets early enough to have great seats. Her friend Carlene joined us, so it was a girls night out.
I didn't know what to expect for a performance, but the newspaper gave a hint this weekend when it suggested we might want to bring our zany questions. As it turns out, it was an evening of remembering (I can't spell reminiscing!) as she talked about and showed clips of her tv series, interspersed with questions from the audience. One of the questions asked about any new projects she might be working on...lo and behold, she's writing a book of anecdotes from those days gone by, and some of it will come from questions she gets on this tour. So there you have it...we pay to see her to give her material to write a book! But that's ok...it was a fun evening, and we got to see a living legend.
