Mary Ann and the TV Blackout

Saturday, Jun 25

I promised to tell the story, and here it is!
On Thursday morning, I went to Channel 3, Phoenix, to appear on GOOD DAY ARIZONA, with Tara, Scott and Dan. I was accompanied by my usual entourage–it was niece Jenni’s birthday, so we’d made plans to hit the Hard Rock Cafe for a celebration lunch afterwards. Even my mom was along!
Well, I got situated on the set, to prepare for the big interview about McKettrick’s Choice, and my family clustered in a corner to watch the show. Lights, camera, action! Tara and I had a great chat about the book, the characters, and my scholarship program. THEN, all of the sudden, the set went dark! What had happened? Well, Mary Ann had leaned on the control panel by accident. Her elbow came to rest on the one button in the whole room that would shut off the lights!
We’re still laughing about it, here at Springwater Station.
I’ve given my dear cousin a new nickname: Blackout Bleecker!
In true western tradition, she’s been a very good sport. Any day now, I plan to quit ribbing her about it. But not just yet.
It’s too much fun!
