I’ll really miss not seeing you tonight at State Theatre, Modesto. Last night my husband & I both tested + for CoVid. I’ve been looking forward to seeing you a lifetime. Yesterday, I was just gonna say, “Forget it. I’m going!” But then I thought, “That’s not being responsible.” So, fingers crossed, someone from St. John’s Evangelical Episcopal will be there in our stead. Thanks for coming to Modesto. Have a wonderful evening! With love & admiration
