My Own Backyard

Sunday, November 29th, 2009

aj1Back home in Dayton, I was so tired from the road trip that Bob and I had taken across West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey on the morning of Sunday, June 20, 2009, I almost considered sending Bob out alone to see the few sites in my own backyard of Dayton, Ohio, that he wanted to see.

Julie McCullough

Sunday, November 22nd, 2009

julie1Of all of the celebrities whom I met at the Hollywood Celebrities Show in Chicago on Sweetest Day, October 17, 2009, Julie McCullough was perhaps the sweetest of them all. Although she is most noted as being the February 1986 Playboy Playmate who was fired from her role on Growing Pains when Kirk Cameron became an evangelical Christian and had her canned, I was most interested in talking to her about something completely different.
