I was playing the piano at Vonderlieth Living Center when in walked a TV crew from Decatur - (Mostly young men) to film the Vonderlieth commercial. I was having a good . time jazzing up my music and joking with them. When they were " finished, (I kid you not-I have a wit- ness) they wanted to take me back to Decatur with them, (piano and all). I've seen that commercial on Jeopardy many times as have many others. When I have been eating out in Decatur, Springfield, and Lin-  m FI coin, I've had both men and women ff orence's ask me if I played the piano. When , I answer "yes",. they say they have Cr seen me on TV in the Vonderlieth ner commerdal, and they liked what they saw. My flowered hat is another clue that always gives me away especially when I am wearing it when I am out and about. When I was younger and liked to flirt, "Ain't we got fun?"
