My trip to Orlando was great! I visited RBARR on grand opening night and I have to admit I was very impressed with what the owners have done with the place. I wish them continued success. I saw Cher at the Amway Center and I loved her. I enjoyed Cyndi Lauper as well. And of course no Orlando trip would be complete without seeing Leigh Shannon, who presented me with a copy of her movie My Fair Lidy! I’m watching it this weekend. Lots of love to you all!
