Default Tommy in the Daily Sun

The Daily Sun was at my house late last week with a reporter, photographer and video technician. The article is expected to be in papers sometime early next week. Keep an eye on it. On the day the article appears in the paper, there will be a video of the interview played on Channel 2 at 6:00 on the same day. Is this my fifteen minutes of fame? For those who see me regularly please save the addition of the paper so I can mail it to my friends and relatives.

Tommy? Now what have you done?

I can't wait to see.

Something nice I bet.

Can you give us a hint?

A hole in one?

You are expecting?

Not expecting. Not about last month hole in one either. And no, Gracie, I haven't done anything bad. It is just Tommy being Tommy. I'd tell you but I'd rather keep you guys is suspense. What I'd really like to see is the video which I can't see without Comcast. Hopefully, someone will record it for me and invite me over to watch it.

There is an outside chance of the article being in tomorrows paper but I don't want to take any attention away from the Easter bunny. Let him/her have their day. Tommy can wait until next week.

Interesting. Very interesting.

I do not get Comcast either so I have to wait for a description of the video.

You make one mistake in your life forty years ago and they never stop hounding you about it.

Thank god the statute of limitations ran out. By the way. I combed my hair for the interview and the picture Bill sent was me on a bad day. I should look much better in the Daily Sun. At least i hope so

Tommy, did they ever take down that picture of you in the Lady Lake post office? I don't think it flattered you at all.




I too am just pulling on your leg.

Us Ohio people can't stop teasin' the people we like a lot.

I agree but since i try to keep my hair shorter, nobody recognizes ma from that picture. I also filed down my fangs since then. Besides that picture was taken 40 years ago when i was 25. As Winston said earlier. People cant forget about the mistake i made 40 years ago.

Rumor has it that the video begins with the police breaking down your front door with a ram rod? Oh boy, tuning in for this reality video is a must for sure!!!

They took my picture today for the Village Magazine. I ran the Villages Race at the Polo Fields. The Sun was also there today as well. They've caught me in the past as well. In January 2012 my husband and I had the Village Magazine coveted Cover so that was more of a big deal. It's not hard to be a celebrity in TV.
