Wednesday afternoon I got VERY last minute notice that I had complimentary tickets to see the opening night of “Marilyn:  Forever Blonde”.  Of course I went in to high gear to make myself at least reasonably presentable to the world, and fought my way through (thankfully) less than usually tragic traffic, which normally separates my […]
