Our March cover girl and local living legend, Ebby Halliday was our guest of honor. What an amazing woman. She is a Dallas icon and real estate mogul. 98 years old and still goes to work every day. Her secret to staying young? She told last night's crowd, "I don't drink. I don't smoke. And I will never retire." She's a little bity thing, all of 5 foot tall but what a powerhouse of energy and enthusiasm. It was an honor to meet her.
The other thrill of the night was talking to Daryl Johnston. He has a third-grade son and so do I. We played his flag-football team last season (as I talked about here) so we had that to talk about. He was so nice and, my God, is he GORGEOUS in person.
I walked up to him and introduced myself and after a minute of chit-chat I said, "So, what are you doing now?" And he says, "Well, I'm doing some broadcasting". The very minute I said it I could have killed myself. I mean, DUH, he's my favorite sportscaster on Fox. Such an idiot. But he was lovely and I was thrilled he came.
The party was a great success and I think everyone had a wonderful time. I came home and was so exhausted from the night that I went to bed at 9:00 pm. Now, it's 5:00 am and I am wide awake. Lovely. Have a great day everyone!
