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 was a fun evening, and we got to see a living legend.

I hope she writes fast. I'll enjoy reading her book. They just don't get any better then Lucy & Carol.

I've heard of only one person who didn't like Carol Burnett. He was an odd man too! LOL

Be sure to post your CQ blocks as you work on them! I need to get back to mine.

As to the Formica question you asked on my blog. It curved up the back wall. My husband tore it out with very little problem. Oh wait! Since we went with solid surface, he didn't have to worry about the countertop. He took a bar and broke the Formica at the curve. The entire countertop came out since they don't use a wood base to install solid surface over. Then he peeled it off the sheetrock/backerboard/whateverit'scalled on the wall.

Good luck!

Greetings! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog - I just ordered some fabric for the sashing on my t-shirt quilt - I'm hoping I like it in person.

AND - I love Carol Burnett. The Gone With the Wind skit has to be one of the all time best in history.
