A Fond Farewell to Jay Leno

I love Jay Leno.... I mean REALLY love him. I think he's a class act.
Hubster and I got married on 5/22/92 ..... which was, ironically, Johnny Carson's last night on the air as the host of the Tonight Show. So I've always known how long Jay Leno has been the host.... because it's been as long as my marriage.

Anyway, I've been sad that Jay is leaving the Tonight Show. (Nothing against Conan O'Brien, but I just don't think he's quite the same caliber as Jay is.)

Here's a clip from last night's show, and Jay's farewell. This almost made me cry.

Thank you Jay for 17 wonderful years! You will be GREATLY missed!

Oh wow! I didn't know he was done. Late night TV is past my bedtime, but even I know he's been around a long time.
