Alec Baldwin will be appearing Friday night in Dallas at the AT&T Performing Arts Center. For one night and one night only, if he makes his flight. The event is being advertised as “An Intimate Evening with Alec Baldwin”. What pray tell will he be doing? Reenacting love scenes from It’s Complicated? Ranting about American Airline flight attendants? I wonder what airline he flies now?Should he once again find himself ejected from his flight for whatever reason, completely missing the intimate evening, my husband could stand in for him. He is often mistaken for Baldwin.
People frequently approach John to tell him he looks just like Alec Baldwin. It happened last weekend at Uncle Julio’s, as we stuffed our pie holes with fajitas. A lady walked up, seemed a bit shy and embarrassed, but just had to speak to John. “Oh I bet you get that all the time, don’t you?” she giggled, this grown woman. “My husband thought I should come over and tell you.” He waved from across the restaurant. Evidently she really thought he was Alec. I thought she might join us for margaritas. John has paparazzi.
After the real Alec Baldwin was punted from his flight in December, I felt people glare at us at Northpark as we shopped for Christmas gifts. They studied our shopping bags to see which stores Alec visited. Was he cheap? Did he buy expensive gifts? People wondered why he was in Dallas. Was he filming a movie? The Dallas area has become a hot spot for movie production, you know. And it’s not that unusual to see actors and singers in Dallas. I saw Jessica Simpson at PF Chang’s – not that she’s much of an actor or singer.
John flies quite often on business – so far he hasn’t been booted from any flights, but he doesn’t play Words with Friends yet. I hear its addictive.

They do favor a little, but John is much better looking and much better behaved. Love Talya’s John! Talya’s mom

Isn’t it nice to have such handsome – and lovable, in-laws? Your writing is always good, Talya. I always am interested and read it all the way through. Lou Nell

Thank you so much Lou Nell!
From looking at his pictures, before, I never caught the Alec Baldwin look-alike thing, but he does look like AB when their pictures are side by side. I always thought John would make a great Clark Kent/Superman, though. But, I will say that i get his name confused with our Speaker of the House, John Boehner.=)…Anyhow, Talya, please keep on keeping on with your awesome stories!!! They’re awesome!
I’ve never met Alec but John is too classy to ever make enough of himself to call attention, let alone get kicked off a flight. He’s a sweet and thoughtful man with good taste in people, food, and wine. He makes a heck of a tenderloin and can grill a mushroom to perfection. Every time I am allowed to invade your kitchen, I have the best time and want more time with you both.

Only know John through your photos, but I agree with your Mom Yup – he’s better.
