An Interesting Fact About Me
Years ago, I was in Las Vegas for a banking conference and a group of us decided to catch a show after dinner. I was sitting there minding my own business when Suzanne Somers pulled me up on stage for about 20 minutes. I had my fleeting moment of fame while walking back to the hotel when a limo pulled up next to me, the window rolled down and an elderly woman pointed to a jumbotron and said, “That’s you!” There up on the screen was the picture of Suzanne and I entertaining the crowd.”
