Debut News and an Oprah Face Running Picture
Speaking of Running, you know one of my "friends" tracked down the pictures of me running that blasted race last weekend, but I am going to spare you those details. Oprah-face pictures, I hate to admit it, but they were. Thehy sifted through tens of thousands on online pictures. Actually all they had to do was enter a bib number and they can find a runner. I tell you, big brother is watching. I'm sure its useful to someone, I wish I'd thought of it, but as far as I'm concerned, that is right up there with the treadmill that flashes your weight in bug, bright numbers when you step onto it so that all those people on the cardio machines behind you can see it.
I am going to share pictures with you of my trip to Atlanta and Alabama this past weekend. I had my first even booksigning in a Walmart Store.
I walked in and was greeted by a HUGE banner of myself hanging in the front of the store. I'd always thought that something like that would be like seeing your name in lights, but it wasn't. My pores were HUGE, I mean no one should ever see themselves that big, just like noone should ever see themselves in a 10K race photo. Ugh. The signing was wonderful though and those blue dots were falling down all over the place.
It was on to Opelika then for the premiere of Marrying up. I was not prepared! It was so wonderful. The cast was wonderful. EVERY ONE OF THEM FOLKS COULD SANG! No wonder they wouldn't let me be in it. I didn't realize how excited I was until I got suddenly hungry after the show. I do not think I had eaten for three days. GDavis Plays did a fabulous job of bringing my characters to life, and John Forbes, the musical director, I just can't say enough about the work that he did. The first single from the CD is already hitting the airwaves in several states.
Link to the theme song. Its already being played on the radio. Next time I'll tell you how you can get a copy of the soundtrack.
Garrett played a character called Get-Right. He stole the show. He was UP HERE and the rest, well, they were down there. See the show when you get a chance and you'll know what I mean.
I came up with a name for the team; me, Garrett Davis and John Forbes--The Mod Squad.
A few pictures of me with the cast.....
