Jay Leno Hospitalized

I've said before that I'm a Tonight Show fan. I love Jay Leno.

I've just heard that he's checked himself into a Los Angeles, California hospital and canceled the taping of Thursday night's show. Jay is a workaholic, never taking time off for vacations. This is his first "sick" day in 17 years! He'd rather do stand-up when given time off. I pray that he recovers.

Me too. I have a relative and friends who have met him and all say he is such a nice man, the 'guy next door' type, not at all 'Mr Celebrity'.

Prayers for Jay. He's a nice guy!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

I like Jay Leno also, Sally... I hope he is okay.. He's my very favorite comedian on TV now (MUCH better than Letterman). BUT--my all-time fav is Johnny Carson. There will never be another Johnny!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Just playing some catch-up here.... I am still in awe of how to peel a potato. I may have to try potatoes tonight.

Love the look of you new office! It looks so crisp and clean without the wallpaper.

I had heard that Jay Leno took himself to the hospital. I haven't heard why yet.

Have a good weekend.

I have not heard that but I will pray that all will be well quickly with him. Hopefully it is nothing too serious.

Have a great weekend Sally!♥

I heard last night that it was due to food poising. I hope that is true and that he is doing better.
