Yesterday morning I was closer to Dolly Parton than most ever will be, and let me tell you unequivocally she looked as flawless as she does from a distance.
I sat in the studio audience at a taping of Cityline, which is sort of like Good Morning America for Toronto, and Dolly dropped in to announce the Canadian launch of her Imagination Library program, which gives kids a free book every month until they are five.

I was a little bummed that I didn’t get to have my photo taken with Dolly or get her to sign my Just Because I’m a Woman CD, but the next best thing was to get a picture with sassy Cityline host Marilyn Denis, who looks just as flawless as Dolly herself, and who also complimented my Sweater of Many Colors that I wore special for the occasion:
