So how was YOUR Saturday?

Before I get to blogging about a typical Saturday, let me say THANKS to everyone who sent their list of the five things they love most. It’s tough to put your passions into a top 5 list, but there were people were passionate about snuggling, those who thought Taco Bell was terrific and one person who found beauty in a 90-minute commute. To all, thanks so much. But guys, I’m a little disappointed in you. It was all women who shared their story. Not that I mind, but it would be nice to see some guys step to the plate.
Now .. to my Saturday. I usually awake around 5am ( that’s sleeping in for us morning show people ). While working on my computer, I get a phone call at 5:30am ( Calls that early in the morning are never a good thing ). I was asked to head down to Waynesburg to cover a fire .. a fire that killed 6 children.

For the next three hours, we broadcasted live from the devastating fire .. not only for WTAE but also CNN. The thing that stunned me wasn’t the fire or it’s aftermath, but the family members who had lost loved ones .. and how calm they seemed to be. Perhaps they were just in shock.

Moments later, I was back on the road — heading to Pittsburgh — to take part in a fashion show for the city’s Business and Professional Women organization. It was an event I had committed to weeks ago. It was fun serving as emcee while luminaries such as Judge Dwayne Woodruff and Mayor Luke Ravenstahl modeled the latest fashions from Larrimor’s.

After lunch, it was home to walk the dog .. then back out again with Sharon. We had a dinner party to attend in Fox Chapel, but I had drop her off first and head back to the city — to the Benedum theatre. It was there I was asked the introduce the ballet “Peter Pan” to the standing-room only audience. After my intro, it was back up Route 28 for dinner and wine.

Finally got home after midnight … exhausted. I think I need a weekend to recover. Oh, sorry, how was your Saturday?
