No wonder you are so proud of your adorable grand kids! Kristin has done a great job raising them.

I am wondering what medical properties Coke had or has. hmmm

Tonight they will probably say or do something for Melissa Gilbert's birthday on "Dancing". My hunch is that she and Max will be voted off tonight and on her bday!!

What memories I have of those 1984 Olympics here in LA. John flying around in a helicopter escorting the teams to their venues. They say it was of the most successful ones ever! It was the busiest time ever for us as we had just moved into our new house too.

Have a great day!

XO Trisha
