My Best Buddy Frank

Is coming to visit us from LA tomorrow!!!

I can't wait!!!

We were best friends in college and then lost touch shortly after I got married which was the same time he moved to LA. Then when Tom and I moved to California we got back in touch and picked up right where we left off. We even worked on the same lot at CBS Studios. I miss him sooooo much and am so excited that he's coming out here in JANUARY of all times. He does not like rain as well as cold temps (part of the reason he will NEVER leave LA) so this really means a lot to me.

I hope he packed a little sunshine in his suitcase.


Here's a copy of an old time photograph of us (bottom left) the night before college graduation. We were both so sad to leave the bubble of college and enter the real world.


The other photo was taken a few months ago and put into a going away book my sister made for me. It was really sweet, she had all my friends write cards and letters, stories, etc. which she put into a "Goodbye California, Hello Seattle" book. This book means the world to me and I often look at it when I'm feeling down and read the words of love and support from my very dear friends. Makes me feel close to them. I'm really missing them a lot lately.

Frank's visit couldn't have come at a better time.


Have a great weekend. Stay warm, safe and happy.

How DARE you two get together without me!!? I'm actually really bummed cuz I was gonna get the two of you on the phone this weekend to talk about a visit. I have a loonngg weekend coming in Feb. (like I do every year, which is why I always visit LA that weekend!) and I'm torn between LA and Seattle. Then, I had a brainstorm, and thought, "why can't we all get together?" But, shit, if he's coming this weekend, he won't be able to come again in two weeks. And, I doubt you'll be able to go to LA. Or, can you? Let me know if you think you can swing it!! In the meantime, please BHFFI for me ;-)

I'm so happy for you. That's great news. Have fun with Frank! I hope it's sunny while he's here.

Newsflash! Frank wants to fuck the hell out of you! Any guy and girl that are 'best friends' are either secretly fucking or in denial...

Whoever Tucker is needs to take a chill pill...geeeeez. Anyway, Frank is adorable!!!! Have fun!

Tucker, I see where you're coming from and yes, I'm not naive and am aware of guys motives when it comes to these things, but believe me, there is nothing along those lines with Frank. He is like a brother to me. I've known him for 17+ years and we've been through a lot and it is purely friendship.

Anyway, are you the "real" Tucker Max?? If so, you are my hero. I read your book and am in awe of you. If I were a guy, I'd want to be you. I'm completely serious. You rock. But I'm doubtful that it's really you. If so, how the hell did you find my blog???

Did Frank fall in love w/Seattle? The weather really put on a show for him! It was fun to run into you in Nordstrom...of all places!
