just a little note to family and friends

Something really cool happened this week. One of my fans...old like me, out of the blue sent me footage of my old singing group from a 1965 "American Bandstand" type of show called "Shiveree". Our group was on the hit parade in the 60's and did several teen tv shows. I am so old that color tv hadn't been invented yet! Some of my older friends will have a good laugh and remember the days...

I feel like this footage is a real treasure. I can't believe anyone found it and I am amazed that this fan would go out of his way to see that I had it.

Anyway, it is a scream to watch. Can you guess which contessa is me? Cole told me that it wasn't me, it was his mom!

I am 19 years old.
