Labor Day I participated in a STREET FAIR in DANVILLE, CALIFORNIA where I was picked to be interviewed by the host of PBS TRAVEL SCOPE with Joseph Rosendo.I saw them walking around and NEVER thought they would be approaching me!I had just finished a SALE on the SQUARE APP and of course the amount I wanted would not pop into place so I charged the woman from WEST L.A. the wrong amount and gave her cash back!I was busy double checking my arithmetic when this JOSEPH was standing waiting for me to look up!Before he could say anything I said, ” Wait!I have a runny nose must find a tissue!!”Great lead in don’t ya think?!He explained what I needed to do and the camera’s started a rolling!Not once but four times………….what came out of my mouth changed all four times, but I think I did OKAY!
I decided I was not going to do a FULL ON PRODUCTION for this small venue so I grabbed four boxes from my adorable storage unit my ITALIAN husband gave me for CHRISTMAS and a couple large pieces.If need be I could have set up by myself at 7 am.Which I did not need to do as his GRACE drove me and helped.We had it all done by 8 am.
The best part was I arrived with four boxes full and left with only TWO!
Plus, I didNOT buy one thing!
A first for me!
Note the SOUND MAN in the back……….he was always making gestures’s!
TRAVELSCOPE reaches 96% of the U.S. market and is seen by more than 286 million viewers.TRAVELSCOPE has garnered numerous awards including three NATIONAL EMMYS and 22 TELLY AWARDS!Just think your CONTESSA will be AIRED next year on this show!If they tell me when I will definitely tell YOU when to tune in!Then we can all rate MY PERFORMANCE!!
WE packed up and loaded the truck in 15 minutes………my neighbor to the left was a wee bit jealous.I was thrilled with the day…….SALES, PBS and the shade those trees gave me!I was so tired I could barley speak upon arriving home.Thank goodness The ITALIAN took over from there………….wine, steaks and off to bed I went!
