Famous Fourth of July People

Spent the 4th of July at Bull Durham Stadium. You know, like the movie… Kevin Costner plays Crash Davis…



Larry: Excuse me, but what the hell's going on out here?

Crash Davis: Well, Nuke's scared because his eyelids are jammed and his old man's here. We need a live... is it a live rooster? We need a live rooster to take the curse off Jose's glove and nobody seems to know what to get Millie or Jimmy for their wedding present.

Larry: Okay, well, uh... candlesticks always make a nice gift, and uh, maybe you could find out where she's registered and maybe a place-setting or maybe a silverware pattern. Okay, let's get two! Go get 'em.


Hotdogs, fireworks, baseball all very American. Well, maybe not the fireworks but…



Then I spied through my telescopic lens more famous people. I’m not sure if you can tell because they were so well hidden from the paparazzi behind their dark sunglasses but also at the game were famed illustrator and mandolin extraordinaire Tim Lee and his wife, children’s book author/illustrator and swim mom, Karen Lee.

Now I’m off to sell my photo to People Magazine or the SCBWI Bulletin…

So, let me get this straight. Among your sightings of Wogs, Pigrates and roxopods, you are including Tim and Karen Lee among this list? :0)

Unbelieveable!

sure, it sounds like fun but you know, with all the press and hollywood security, you couldn't even get near the Lee's. I did share a beer with Paris Hilton when she accidently drank out of my cup by mistake but that was about it.

Those are imposters! I am much more elegant looking than this matronly drudge and her mundane looking escort. Just look at those dime store sunglasses and walmart-esque shirt. I wouldn't be caught dead at a minor league game - let alone one featuring non-professional players.

I am a swim mom though and I am currently deep into a revise of my next novel "Pool Rules". It's a coming of age story in which our young heroine is torn in the tug of war between the overzealous, micro-managing, "lost-my-soul-while-cutting-the-crust-off-other-people's-sanwiches" pool nazi's influence and her slacker, irresponsible, gesso sniffing mother.

Paris will be managing my next tour as my publicist and activities coordinator. Please address all corespondence to her at inmate#657398@lacountyjail.com

With utmost sincerity
The "Real" Karen Lee
