A Little Fun with the National Media

A lighter update from my hometown…

Friday afternoon I ran out to take care of a few errands and found this fellow at the coffee shop! I immediately recognized him as FOX news correspondant Steve Harrigan. Of course, I introduced myself and struck up a conversation.

I told him that I had caught one of his reports on Vicksburg and I felt like he did a good job of reporting WITHOUT sensationalizing, but I didn’t stop there. I couldn’t resist joking with him about how we feel about the national media running down here and clinging to our light poles. I told him there was even a little piece in my latest book where I gave his friend, Geraldo, a hard time for running around the Big Easy with his little hand-held wind meter.

That led to my giving him a signed copy of Sue Ellen’s Girl Ain’t Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy. (He said he would have to go back to NY and share the weather bit with Geraldo!) It also led directly to the second picture.  I doubt anyone is going to believe this, but it was Steve’s idea! “I guess I should cling to a pole,” he said. We agreed that I should look like I’m trying to pull him off of it.

Are we good actors?  I report. You decide.

Hugs, Shellie

    And here I’ve been praying like crazy for you and Phil and you out running around pulling strange men off the poles…
    Lawdy… poor Phil… living with a crazy woman

  2. Your sympathies are well placed, my friend. 🙂 I’ve passed them to the man. And by the way, we really do appreciate the prayer support.

    This is too funny! By the way, where IS Geraldo? I thought he was always running around putting himself in harms way… or at least trying to look like it, lol. Should have told Herrigan to hook you up with Greta, you’d make a good interview for her concerning all of this.

  4. Now why didn’t I think of that?!
