I had the pleasure to see Dennis Miller (with opening act Julia Lillis) at the Fox Performing Arts Center in Riverside tonight. He told a sweet story about his 69-year-old mother who got to have dinner with her son and Frank Sinatra 6 months before her death.
She told Sinatra, “I saw you in 1952 at the Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh.”
Sinatra replied, “1952, Stanley Theater? I remember you. You were on the left. You looked GOOD.”
Dennis said his mom “flitted” away.
Tonight, I got to meet Dennis backstage before the show. The way his mom felt when she met Sinatra? Yeah, that’s how I feel right now. I’m still flitting.
