Im'ma Be on TV, Maybe.....*

* probably not.  (EDIT BELOW)

Mel gave me a heads up on Thursday that a local TV station would be at the shop that morning; filming a segment on how to have lovely wedding flowers on a budget. Knowing that I would only be in the background, if at all, I nevertheless dressed in slightly better clothes than I ordinarily do (which isn't saying much....lol) and I wore jewelry, which I seldom do for work.

I had barely gotten in the door when the truck, blazoned with WTVD Channel 11 on the side, parked out front. Shortly, the door opened and a reporter came in. Mel had set up his consultation table with examples of how to decorate wedding tables on a budget. The cameraman followed, and the interview commenced. I was in the rear of the shop, conditioning flowers for the weekend's weddings.

As the interview ended, the reporter (Amber Rupinta), came into the work area and was introduced to me. She appears to be a very pretty woman on TV, but in person, she is gorgeous!! (Amber, you should wear red everyday!) Amber spoke with us while the camera man took footage of the flowers I was conditioning, opening boxes, etc. I sincerely doubt that any of that footage will make the newscast, but just in case, it will be shown in the 4pm news segment on WTVD, Channel 11, Raleigh, Durham and surrounding areas, on Friday.

*NOT!   LOL!!   Mel looked good, though. I reminded him that the camera adds ten pounds. I didn't really expect to be on camera, so it didn't surprise me - or bother me - at all.

I hope they used the footage!

We just started watching Netflix videos of the HBO series "Six Feet Under"-- I thought of you the other day when the mother took a job in a florist shop and cried tears of joy. She'd been around funeral flowers for so long, she was delighted to be making bouquets for weddings and joyous parties!

We don't quite get stations from there... only a PBS station from NC.

I've gotten into the habit of watching the 4pm News (since Oprah vacted that spot) so I will definitely be on the lookout for you, Judy.

That is soooo cool. Wish we could see it here in Colo.

Ginnie said...

Damn, Judy .... I just watched the TV segment and and was so disappointed to see that you were not in it !! (I was going to ask you to send me an authograph.)
Mel got a nice viewing though and I know that must have pleased you.
