Let me preface this blog: when I was a kid I remember that every day at noon my mom had a date. That's right. Every day. Never fail, with Perry Mason. The old black and white show about a lawyer. I remember her folding laundry while watching the show and we never interupted her, probably because we found the show so boring. I now have my own show I watch every day (nearly) never fail, and something I look forward to. Live! With Regis and Kelly. It's my little escape into a little bit of what's happening in the world.So, while being here in NY I've had the opportunity to go see their show being taped- which was really a lot of fun. AND- heard one morning about a high heel race they were putting on for charity. I signed myself up! Anika Busby did too, and we had a great time! It took place in Central Park. My biggest goal was to qualify in the preliminary heat to run with Kelly Ripa in the front row, and I did! I'm wearing a yellow shirt and gray pants. What a blast to be on t.v. and enjoy the festivities of the morning- including: free pedicures, manicures, massages, free drinks, snacks, etc. A definate highlight of my New York Summer. And, I finished about 8th!
