Last night we all went to see Jim J. Bullock perform in his one-man cabaret Upstairs at Vitello's in Studio City. Directed by Michael Lorre; Musical Direction and pianist Gary Mattison; Presented by Michael Sterling, this is a supper club with a stage. Vitello's is the scene of the crime in Robert Blake's murder mystery. Blake's wife Bonnie Lee was shot outside the restaurant.

Jim J. Bullock was amazing, funny and wonderful. He has a great singing voice and really knows how to belt out a song.

Here is a photo of us last night, March 5. Notice the "ghost" hanging onto Bullock's shirt. Maybe it was Bonnie Lee...

Deborah Van Valkenburgh, Lydia Cornell, Jim J. Bullock and Nancy Dussault

Lydia Cornell, Greg Louganis

Greg Louganis was there last night too. He is the Olympic Diver, author, actor and Aids activist. A wonderful man. I sat with Bruce Dent and Earlene Davis.

A GREAT EVENING. It was so good to be back with the cast of our wonderul show. If only Dad Ted Knight had been there!
