PopPop Meets the Ball of Fire

Grandma came along to keep him honest, but she gave him a moment to say his private goodbyes to Follies legend Betty “Ball of Fire” Rowland. That’s just one of Grandma’s little secrets for keeping a marriage hot for 73-going-on-74 years. Watch and learn, grasshopper.

The OGs give Billy’s 4 out of 5 stars. Check it out!
