30 Days and 30 Blogs: Day 23
For those of you who don’t know, I’m a regular contributor to Kougarmagazine.com It’s a site by and for sexy, sophisticated, self-reliant women and the men who love them. I really like the idea of championing the notion that age is just a number and if you’re motivated, you can do whatever you want. SO in addition to my comedy bits, there are all sorts of helpful articles on fashion, health, business, etc.

You see, I put this list together in mid August. So there was one joke that stopped being funny by the time the issue went on-line.

I’m not sure why I felt it was okay to make jokes about him on stage after he died but I felt this photo was over the line…but that’s how I see it. I guess that post death, this picture feels more like an insult, whereas my jokes on stage feel like jokes. I dunno where my “line” is. It moves all the time. But I just thought I’d share a bit of the behind the scenes process with you folks.
