Me and Paula Deen Today

Hey ya 'all Paula Deen came to town, Columbia Missouri and I had to go out after work to Barnes and Noble bookstore  and stand in line almost 2 hours to get up to her





She was signing a picture of me in front of her 1st Lady and Sons restaurant in Savannah Georgia back in 1998 when I first met her, not even knowing who she was. Really she wasn't popular yet.




Paula is promoting her newest cookbook. It was a fun event

  8. What a great picture. You both look good!! I have always loved her cookbooks and she has looked the same for years (although I do think she is thinner now). I'm glad you were able to get a picture with her. xo Diana

  10. Yay!! I'm so glad you got to do this! We stopped in to see her when she was in our Barnes and Noble, I think it was this past spring? here in charleston. One thing about Paula--she doesn't rush you through, and visits with each and every person who comes to see her, and will sign all you bring her--and genuinely seems glad to see everyone.

  12. Cute, cute picture! I ate in Lady and Sons sometime in the early 2000s. She wasn't famous yet and there was no line. I asked a woman in one of the stores where I could find a good Southern meal and I walked over and got seated. Pretty amazing!
