Dear Josh - Part of the mystique of being "The Least of All the Grobanites" is that I am behind the curve in just about EVERYTHING - including updates on YOU! I do not have the time to follow your career as closely as I would like, and if it was not for Grobie friend's faithful devotion, I probably would have missed completely the release of NOEL, and all the beautiful classic music that you gave us this holiday season. My life is THAT BUSY!

That being said, I have written in the past about how I am a huge fan of the political talk show pundit, Laura Ingraham and because I am perpetually behind the curve, I listen to her show on podcast.

Last week I was listening to her show on September 25 and during the first hour, she was talking about the new bus that she was living in as she went around the country to promote her new book: POWER TO THE PEOPLE. She was telling her audience and hinting to her producer AJ that the bus driver told her that the occupant of this particular bus before her was a young and well-known vocal artist with the initials JG. When I heard those initials, I knew that it had to be you. She repeated your initials a couple of more times to AJ before she finally decided to announce "JOSH GROBAN" to her entire listening audience. And even though I knew it was you, I was still suprised to hear Laura say it.

Now this bus that Laura was occupying did not transport the Groband or the other myriad of people who accompany you on tour. No, Laura made it quite clear that this was YOUR BUS, and she even commented on sleeping in the bed that you slept in while on the AWAKE Tour. (Laura is a germophobe and she wondered if you were a "clean" person. She finally concluded that you were - like DUH Laura!) But sleeping in your bed on the bus was difficult for her so she announced on her September 26th show that she hoped that you slept better than she did on that bus. The answer to that statement, we will never know.

Laura and you, Josh, both love dogs and like you, Laura has a dog named Lucy. I love her dog,Lucy as much as I love your dog, Sweeney. They are both beautiful dogs who are quite entertaining in their own right. Unlike you, however Laura did not take Lucy on tour with her, but if she had, I am sure that Lucy would have had a ball sniffing out and marking over Sweeney's territory on that bus. It would probably would have been a sight to see, but alas Lucy remained at Laura's home in D.C. thus the Lucy/Sweeney territorial battle has been averted.

For any Grobies who may be interested, there are pictures of the bed that you and Laura slept in SEPARATELY AND AT DIFFREENT DATES AND TIMES, on her website Laura I had seen the picture of Laura on this bed before I listented to the September 25th show. If I knew that you had slept there, I would have looked at it closer. I hope that other Grobies enjoy seeing it if they choose to visit that site.

So Josh, wherever you may be, always take God for your spouse and friend and walk with Him continually. You will not sin and you will learn to love and the things that you MUST DO will work out PROSPEROUSLY for you. (St. John of the Cross)
