That was my first GL weekend when Ron could only do the first show---and boy was I glad that was the one I had the ticket to! I met him for the first time the following day.

Rosie, make sure you purchases those CDs via the Official GL fan club or through us whenever I get that set up for him (he's going to give me some of them either when I see him in NY or in Pittsburgh.)

Ron and Alan are not alike at all! I will admit that every noe and again when Alan was being sweet, there was a little bit of Ron shining through, but Ron is very mild mannered and even tempered. He is also very funny and loves to joke around. I hope you will come on over to his official board and chat!

I will have to come onto his board, I would love to chat!! Also, thanks for the advice on how to order the CD's. My dad will love them. My dad would have given his right arm to be able to sing like Mr. Raines(sadly he gave a few finger to farming instead). When I was little my dad would be singing musical number out in the cornfields. Most mornings were, "Oh what a beautiful morning!" My dad just wanted the deep baritone voice that the musical of his time the men had. RR has that voice. By the way, our corn did well anyway!!

I can listen to him sing all day long. I also have some of the cast recordings that he has done, including the full recording of Man of LaMancha! It is great!

Quote PelphreyPosse: Hi, Rosie, I cannot believe that two weeks from today I will be in NYC with all of the GL actors for the last time as a fanclub event. It is so sad to think for some of these actors I might not ever see them in person again. Others I know I will because they are friends, and still others at the SLS events (Ptts, Atlanta and more). I want to try and tell as many as I can how much they were loved by all of us especially those on this board. I wish that they could know how special they are to us and how much we are all grieving for our show. Sadly, most of them will never know the depths of our passion for GL.


I think many of the cast know how much they are missed!! They too lost something that was a once in a lifetime experience from them. Beth/BC stated that part of the connection we have with GL is that the cast of GL was in our home daily, which is true. But it also gives us a timeline of sorts. I can recall being sick with all day morning sickness when Eleni was telling Maureen she was pregnant. I went to my JR/SR prom the same year as Phillip/Rick/Mindy/Beth. Thank god I am not a grandma with Beth, as my kids did not age as fast! It is like hearing a song that puts you back in time. So, when you see them all, party like the star you are!!
