What’s up peeps?! Everyone getting ready for Labor Day fun? Well, I now have no pants that fit me…but my new motto is “Leggings Can Be Pants” and the beauty of leggings is that they always fit. Well I am in Duluth, MN tonight because tomorrow is my Uncle Bill’s retirement party; he is retiring from the Duluth Police Force. Uncle Bill is one of my favorite people in the world, he is so funny and always makes people laugh even though I know being a cop is one of the toughest jobs in the world and he has seen a lot of things that I know I couldn’t handle. While in Duluth today, I also got to drop in at First Witness. If you saw Wanna Bet (game show on ABC) , you know that First Witness is the charity that I played for and won them $43,000.00. I was thrilled that I won because this is such an important place. First Witness is a child abuse resource center that is doing great things to deal with the aftermath of sexual and physical abuse of children in a safe place. My Uncle Bill and Aunt Susie have been very involved with First Witness and my Uncle Bill worked there for 11 years when he was assigned to the sex-crimes unit in Duluth. It was so great to meet the people who worked there and get to see first hand how hard their job is, they are dealing with children who have been through horrific things, I know I couldn’t do it. I urge my fans to check out their website and do what they can for such a great place.
Signing off and in honor of my Uncle Bill, thank a police officer today for the job they do. And as my Uncle Bill would say, “I’m here, you may now enjoy the pleasure of my company” Happy Retirement Uncle Bill!!!
