Delilah: George, I hope you and your family are all doing well. Sonny is “Officer Harris” now and the leader of his Swat Team…He and his wife have 4 kids and are now adopting one…Take care, D. (Comments)
Geo: Wow, I still remember him when he was just a little kid and while you were on the air he would be a sleep in the conference room, when we worked together in Boston.
Crista: Hey Geo, do you know how to line dance?
Geo: No I don’t Christa, but I sure love watching you dosey doe.
Robin Marshall: “I know more sex is always the answer, but sometimes I forget what the question was.” Paleeze. You’ve Never known what the question was! I’m sure you never will! 🙂
Guess who’s about to make a reappearance? xoxo. (More Sex Is Always The Answer)
Geo: I’m more than willing and able to learn, Robin, do you give private lessons?
Hunny Bunny: I really love your blog this week because it finally shows everyone, just how smart your mind is. (The Greatest Radio Promotion Ever)
Geo: And I love when you pillow talk me Laura. Sadly though, if I was actually half as smart as you claim I am, you’d still be hanging out at my place.
Honey – you must know that I fantasize about you all the time! I bet that that blows your little fantasy theory all to hell huh? (Men Fantasize About Women They Know, Women Fantasize About Men They Don’t Know)
Geo: You don’t even wanna know what kind of fantasy I’m thinking about right now, Lorraine.
Linda Stein: While the Tri-Rail story was riveting, the advice at the end of your blog was BRILLIANT!!! Clearly, you are upgrading your Blog! (What A F**king Day)
Geo: Thank you Linda, but the truth be known, I mostly just rant.
Sandy McAdler: When are you coming back to the wine country, it may be time for another picnic?
Geo: That was very fun Sandy.
Robin Garrett: George, the guy in the SUV died.. so it’s now a traffic homicide investigation. This usually closes the road and in your case the tracks for hours. But why don’t you let us know why you were you on that train in the first place? I know for sure that they don’t have a bar or any big screens on Tri-rail. (What A F**king Day)
Geo: Robin, I was only on that train because the beautiful young blonde I was with earlier, dumped me off at the Hollywood station when she was done with me.
Heather Emrick: George, sorry to hear about your break up with the hunny bunny. Could it possibly be because you referred to her as hunny bunny? Eeewwwww………..just a thought……….. (Comments)
Geo: Actually, she came up with that moniker, Heather. She wanted a code name because she didn’t want her name out there. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that her Great Grandfather was the youngest of the Younger Brothers who rode with Jesse James and she has similar issues?
Enough about her though, let’s talk about the time you arranged a nice dinner for me and Ron Chapman along with our wives to see Glenn Yarbrough at the Fairmont in Dallas. During dinner, you came over to check on us and you looked so breathtakingly beautiful that my wife Lana said I could leave her for you.
Joasia Holotka: I’m still waiting for the beauty and brains to pay off simultaneously??? I’m available right now to be part of a team doing mornings on the radio – lol! (Cami Only Dances For The Money)
Geo: As beautiful as you are Joasia, I don’t know why you’d want to hide it on the radio?
Jennifer Nicole: When are you going to get me a record deal?
Geo: I’m sorry Jennifer, but most of the record guys I knew, are dead now. However, I’m still up for more rehearsals.
Nancy Gregory: George, I’m getting a new musical ready called “The Chapel Of Love” which is going to open in Vegas first and then I’m taking it to Broadway. I think you should get involved.
Geo: Sounds like fun Nancy, but I ain’t a song and dance kinda guy. Although still do the ol’ soft shoe pretty well.
Jo Myers: Even though I don’t agree with everything you say, it is so thrilling to be mentioned in your blog, Geo! (I’m changing my name to Joasia though. I love that name!!) (You May Be Lunch)
Geo: I’m still standing by to pick you up at the airport if John does you, wrong little girl.
Caroline: OMG, George, you are so funny, my people in Kenya would love you. We should go there!
Geo: How much fun would that be, Sweet Caroline and Geo, on Safari?
Embree McDermid: I thought George’s eyesight was failing, but then I noticed all the pretty young things he is pictured with, so I decided that he’s just being kind. I don’t feel or think old, but If I had to choose between being a knockout or having my mind in reasonable shape, I’d choose my mind (Everybody’s Talkin’)
Geo: Em, as Joe Cocker sang … “You Are So Beautiful.”
Stacey: Oh shit, I missed Bob, boo…Glad your daughter is a college graduate, now the fun begins with her looking for a job. If I don’t see you this week, have fun in Palm Springs.
Geo: Stacey, I can hardly wait to see you again so we can resume talking about my favorite subject.
Debbie Martin: George,
I enjoyed reading your blog very much and I also enjoyed our time together. You are a great teacher and love what you do, always striving to improve things. You believed and supported me and helped me achieve the confidence I needed to go out on my own. Thank you, my friend. (Thank You)
Geo: Awww, you’re getting me all mushy, Debbie.
Lorenda Rae: Some more of your great quotes… You should put them all in a book George…(Blondes Are Charity Cases)
Geo: The book’s almost done, Lorenda, I’m in the middle of editing it right now.
Georgina Pugh Palmer: I’m at the Raindancer tonight where I’ve met a nice ( olde lady ) whom I think you would enjoy meeting, and she lives in your complex.
Geo: I prefer younger ladies such as yourself Georgy Girl.
I’ll always remember metting you for the first time. We were all out in California with Joe Amaturo for meetings at KFRG in Sam Bernardino and you were supposed to bring me into the radio station with you in the morning. Obvisouly you forgot, so I made my own way in and upon arrival, and confronted you by saying, “Hey I’m a six foot blonde who is pretty good looking, so I’m not real used to being forgotten.” Your instant response was, “I didn’t forget you, it’s just my way of hitting on you.” And so has gone our twenty year relationship.(Comments)
Geo: And I have enjoyed every breathless moment of it, Betsy.
Nurse Ashley: Hey Baby, do you want another glass of red wine?
Geo: Does the Pope sh*t in the woods?
Lindy Rome: Hey Geo – I’m honored to be in a blog titled “…To The Ones I Love.” Right back at ya, my friend. 🙂 That said, this “leading” stuff is getting tiresome. I think I’m ready to follow! (This Is Dedicated To The Ones I Love)
Geo: I’ll try and pull out front Lindy, but you’re pretty fast.
Heidi Reever: Cami, For years we have loved seeing you and your dad at the graduation parties for our boys and, wow, now it’s your turn to graduate! We have enjoyed watching you grow and change over the years and become the smart, beautiful young woman that you are today. You know we love your dad and I’m sure you know how lucky you are to have him as your biggest fan and supporter. We know that you will do well in whatever you pursue! (Cami Graduates Today)
Geo: I’ll pass this on to Cami, Heidi.
Camera Anne Johns Summerfield:
Daddy, thank you for buying me all the lavish dresses over the years, scaring away every sales lady when I gave you the “look,” sitting for hours when I tried on hundreds of outfits, pursuing through “uppies” even when your arms probably were about to break, answering every phone call no matter the hour or the situation, putting up with my April Fools jokes that gave you heart attacks, all the vacations, activities, sports and hobbies you paid for just to prove I could do anything I wanted, all the life lessons I told you gave me headaches, for all the stories I’ve heard a hundred times and still ask to hear a hundred times more, and for being the chauffeur of teenage girls to every mall, movies, and skate zone trip. Thank you for being the best dad I could ever ask for and letting me have dreams bigger than my 5’1″ self. Happy Father’s Day to the coolest dad and grandpa I know. (Comments)
Daddy: If you’re trying to make me weep honey, you’ve succeeded. xoxo
Diane Shanon: The 70s were quite exciting. I was so young though I didn’t know any better. Working at WNAP was an experience for me. I was really inexperienced and was in over my head. I needed more mentoring before being thrown in with Chris, Buster, Freddy, and Booger. But… I learned a lot and have some great stories from those days. Ann and I have been friends since before WNAP, we worked at WIFE together. She has been a great friend and I love her dearly. And the fact that we survived the same Yancy car ride is a bonding moment.
Geo: Riding with Dick was always a trip, Diane.
Diane McCulloch: I’d love to come up and see your place when we get back to West Palm in about two weeks.
Geo: Your gonna love the million dollar view Diane, plus you’ll get to see all my old records hanging on the wall.
Rollye James: I thought I was doing a show tonight. My body apparently just made other plans. Apologies. Hope to talk to you next Friday.
Geo: Miss you Rollye.
Deputy Kari Pallotta:
Mr Johns, you are under arrest, are you going to come quietly or do I need to cuff you?
Could you cuff me later?
Twin Peaks Girls: Hey Geo, when are you coming back to the “Peaks” so we can serve you properly?
Geo: I’m on my way!
Thanks for taking me to California to run the La Jolla Half Marathin with you and Candis. (Comments)
That Torrey Pines hill was a killer, Maureen. Whew!
Samantha: Geo, don’t you think maybe that I’m a little too young for you?
Geo: I can’t help it Sam, when I was 15 I adored 20-year-olds and I still do.
