Las Vegas, NV

Bio: Since my blog is about Phyllis Diller, you've probably figured out that I know her. Knew her. Worked for her as personal/private/executive (take your pick) secretary for a couple of years back when she was in her heyday. I've had lots of interesting jobs -- worked for her manager for a few years. He also mnaged the likes of Dyan Cannon, George Gobel, Diahann Carroll, Candice Bergen, Jack Jones and more. I lived in Houston for awhile and in 1980 (Oh, that is so last century!) I married and moved to Las Vegas. I worked for the U.S. Attorney's office here in LV and now am happily retired, playing golf, throwing pottery (no, not at the wall, on a potter's wheel), teaching after-school Bible clubs, and generally enjoying life getting over to California wine country as often as possible and collecting wine (at least long enough to chill it before I pull the cork). I have three cats -- well, maybe four -- living with me. The fourth is the neighborhood stray who sleeps on my patio furniture and enjoys the fresh water, shade and cool grass. To sleep on -- grass to sleep on. I'd love to hear from you -- talk about Phyllis, comedy, wine, cats, golf, whatever makes you happy.

    Hi Robin,
    It was such a pleasure meeting you today at the Sun City Anthem Book Club luncheon. I really enjoyed hearing about the time you spent with Phyllis Diller and you are a hoot yourself!

    I didn’t get a chance to speak to you after your presentation, but I wanted to invite you to a Local Author Event that we are having here at the Paseo Verde Library on Saturday March 8th. We are having a launch party for our new Local Author Collection. Please send me an email if you would like more details.

    P.S. By the way, you were right we do have copies of “Like a Lampshade in a Whorehouse” at the library 🙂

    Thank you,
