Well, it has been over a year since my last blog! Boy have I been lazy when it comes to keeping up with this thing or what?! 😉 But I thought this was a perfect time to check in, say hi, wish you a great 2019, and pay homage to my late friend and good buddy, the legendary Producer/Director/Actress Penny Marshall!
I met Penny around 11 years ago after her late brother Garry sent her a copy of a screenplay I had co-written. Imagine my surprise one day to pick up the telephone to hear the all-too-familiar voice of "Laverne" on the other end of the line.
Penny - "Hello Byron?"
Me - "Yes, speaking....." (thinking to myself, is this who I think it is?)
Penny - "This is Penny Marshall. My brother sent me your script. I read it and I like it. Can we get together and talk about it?"
Hmmmmm....what was I gonna say, "No"!?!? 😃
A few days…
