So, what did I do on my “day off” before I go on TV tomorrow night on America’s Got Talent at Radio City?
After a brief, somewhat perfunctory hair appointment, I had lunch with my very old friend from elementary school, Coleman Gregory, and we had a good New York kibitz in a diner on Madison. Who comes walking by but another (younger) old friend, Benjamin Welch. That’s a typical New York thing; I had just been wondering what random friend I was going to run into. Check!
Then I walked up Park Avenue thru Grand Central Station, which looks marvelous, very clean and spiffy, and arrived shortly at the Waldorf Astoria hotel, where my mom was having tea in the lobby, having just arrived on a plane from Atlanta.
She is here to support me, and I’m delighted that she came out. It’s heaven to have such a generous and supportive, loving mom. If someone ever offers you one, don’t hesitate.
Tamra arrives in a little while, so I had to clean up my room, get some flowers… I had also set up a temporary sound recording studio in the room, making creative use of the hotel pillows, cushions and ironing board, so that had to go:
Now I’m going to go over my act a little bit more, tomorrow is THE DAY, so I have to be much more than ready, I figure I have to really be beyond ready, especially if I want to win and take home the Golden Fruitcake, or whatever the prize of this show is.
I guess this is as good a time as any to thank you for reading and for being interested, and if you vote and tell your friends to watch the show and vote, too, I will be much in your debt. If I have to pawn the Golden Fruitcake to pay you all for your trouble I think I can manage that.
So, you may not hear from me tomorrow on this channel, but you WILL hear from me on NBC, tomorrow night, 9 pm East and West coast, and 8 pm in the middle of this great land of ours.
