Dear Fran Drescher #39

Dear Fran, Man, I sure was pretty crabby in my last letter to you. I do have some good things happen in my life, too, you know. First off, I went to Nashville at the end of September and I recorded a song and a music video. I’m still pinching myself every day. Now, here […]

Dear Fran Drescher #38

Dear Fran, Has it really been over two years since I wrote you? What kind of best friend am I? So much has happened since I last wrote you (about my disastrous surgery) that I hardly know where to start. Since then, I wrote a song, got a rash over half of my body, and […]

Dear Fran Drescher #34

Dear Fran Drescher #33

Dear Fran, Back on July 27, I wrote you, “By the way, do you see that hill off to the left of my head? The one that I always think looks like two boobies? I was laughing out loud (when I was posting this picture) to myself because I’ve never noticed it before but the […]

Dear Fran Drescher #32

Dear Fran, So, where was I when I last left you? Oh yes, hiking and biking my fool head off and trying to learn how to work my Fitbit. I told you about this Shapeup Challenge I have to take part in for our health insurance plan, right? I have to keep track of my […]

Dear Fran Drescher #31

Dear Fran, I told you I was going to go biking and hiking and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing. That ShapeUp challenge I was telling you about? It was driving me a bit crazy, but now, I’m turning it into a positive thing. Here’s what I’ve been up to: July 18: Wrote you a […]
