    No joke. I totally thought this show got cancelled. Anyway I’m glad it didn’t. I did some great extra work on it.

    Hey Bill. Looking forward to seeing you in Omaha. My husband Gordon and I miss treating you to some real Texas-Style BBQ. Give me a call if you have some time. Bill Engvall rocks!


    Hello bill. Love the show. Love to see Dr. Burke transfer from Greys to Hawthorne. He will bring a load of fans and authenticity to the show. Love the triangle between marc anthony and jada and tom.You show is really hott right now!! Just keep everyone in hectic situations at the same time to were we can’t stop watching. I’m a nurse we had a nurse who was taking left over pain meds from her patients, we had janitor who robbing banks in day time. Lazy nurse who leave the patient conditions. Don’t be afraid deal with the subject racism which is what I’ve come in contact with lot. Could be power struggles. Hazing goes in nurses when your new in a certain unit of hospital they haze you. We once had 700 pound lADY with a decubitus ulcer that went straight through her. She died of infection. I need to see some complaining about back aches, feet hurting and working double shifts. Gossiping, jealousy
