This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection by Carol BurnettListened to this with Mom and Dad on the way to Dads surgery (hes doing really good now).. I am the only bookworm of the three of us but we all love Carol so they didnt mind when I put this on instead of music.
Comfort read for mom and me.. Dad didnt say much but I caught him smiling a few times.
Good Medicine this one is:).

Can I adopt Carol into my family?:) Would still highly recommend, got myself the physical version of this as well.
This book still lifts my spirits... started it again when I was having a black mood and fell right back into listening to Carol relate her stories :)
Some are still my favorites and some still have me tearing up... the ones about Carrie as well, especially after reading Carols other book. One person I would have loved to know.
Carol is right about one thing... if she had been trying to make it today as a young woman, those same incredible opportunities would not have happened today, like it did back then... sad really :( The modern world is so impatient in some things anymore.
Hope Mom and I get to meet Carol one day :)
Original review :
A lovely collection of reminisces from Carols life. Shes had, as Carol as said herself, quite the run. All the things she has accomplished are amazing and impressive.
Some of her stories were so funny, I found myself thinking about them while at work and home. I purposefully dragged this one out because I didnt want it to end...it was such a wonderful time:).
Hearing Carol narrated it upped the enjoyment. Like with John Barrowman, I felt as if I was sitting on the couch listening to Carol tell her stories.
A couple favorites:
Carols stories about Lucille Ball
When she scared off a mugger when she was walking home alone.
The time she caught Carrie in a fib
Tim Conway and the mummy picture on his license
Her Grandma in the cab ride to Carols home at the time.. that poor cab driver HAHA.
And a beautiful/sad story about Carol bonding with a young fan... I wont say more as not to spoil ya...
Im not crying, your crying
The ending of the memoir also got to me.. poignant and wonderful but sad also, have your tissues ready. I wanted to reach out and hug that lady.
Would recommend, a lovely journey:)

Tim Conway Jr. Show
The Tim Conway Jr. The show runs from 6 p. Pacific Time and is hosted by Tim Conway, Jr. After the departure of Whitman, Conway hosted solo rather than adopting a new co-host. Tim Conway, Jr. Conway's weeknight show at KFI began on Monday, January 18, , after Bryan Suits , who previously hosted the show at that time slot, decided to move back to Seattle. In line with the majority of KFI's programming, Conway discusses political topics, leaning more toward the right with a comical libertarian slant.
