Bringing a cheerful basket of Balls to you for the Holidays!
Hello My Little Rum Balls!
Hope you like my new publicity photos! Chris is still in Cleveland, and I'm breathlessly putting together an amazing show for you. Mare Trevathan, Melanie Owen Padilla and GerRee Hinshaw are pouring out their hearts and souls for this extravaganza and it's all to benefit Fresh City Life. Chris tells me via Cleveland that Fresh City Life puts on a variety of cultural events for the citizens of Denver, the great majority of which are free! That's a better deal than universal healthcare!
