With those now familiar words, George Burns and Gracie Allen bid farewell to devoted audiences at the end of each of their broadcasts throughout the Golden Age of radio and television. Now, in this moving audio portrait, George Burns tells the story of his life with Gracie, the dizzy comedienne whose "illogical logic" charmed America. Burns recalls their first meeting, the vaudeville tours, family days in Hollywood, and their lasting friendship with Jack Benny and other entertainment greats. Here is one of America's most beloved comedians remembering the woman he loved best and the extraordinary life they shared together.

Read it and loved it. Even though you know what's going to happen, it still doesn't stop you frmo balling your eyes out when it does. Filled with humor and emotion.

I adore Gracie Allen! George Burns really knows how to tell a story, and on every page I found myself laughing out loud or crying hysterically! This book is great for people like me: people who have a hard time really getting into a book. It plays out like a movie, and the stories are sweet and funny! Best book I've ever read!

In this day and age when marriage and commitment are unpopular at best, this book reminds us of the meaning of true love.It is a true romance novel. Anyone who likes George Burns and old time radio comedians will find this a true treasure.
