. . . Where Are They Now? . . .

Hello fans,

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. I had a great day with family. It's a tradition for us to play games after dinner, such as LRC (Left, Right, Center dice game) or other fun, mindless games like that.

No matter what we play, I always seem to end up losing. Luckily, we only play with dimes so the most I lose is a few dollars. We always laugh and have a good time, though, and that is the most important thing!

Now, if you are not busy doing some Black Friday shopping, let's find out where actor John Saxon has been since he starred in A Nightmare on Elm Street all those years ago...

Take care,
Melissa
