BURNS IS OUT AND ABOUT AFTER 2 MONTHS OF THE FLU

SHARE BURNS IS OUT AND ABOUT AFTER 2 MONTHS OF THE FLU

George Burns ventured out to his favorite watering holes to catch up on what he's missed while out with the flu for two months.

"George came to the office briefly Monday," longtime manager Irving Fein said Tuesday from Los Angeles. "He seemed in good spirits and wanted to know how the new book was doing."Burns' 10th book, "100 Years, 100 Stories," hit No. 7 on The New York Times best-seller list on Sunday. It is the first book that Burns has been unable to promote. He has been in poor health since a fall in 1994 and did not appear at his 100th birthday celebration last month because of the flu.

"George also went to Hillcrest (Country Club) for lunch and was planning to play a little bridge, something he hasn't done in eight weeks," Fein said. "His speech is a little halting, and he's not able to do interviews."
