Well, I’m here (though we've had some technical difficulties)…and I can prove it! Here's Jimmy the P and Father Sosa up on the scissor-lift.
I’ve never been as tall as the HEB sign before… but I think I might be as tall as Jimmy. Check out his hat - it was signed and donated by Michael LeMonica, he of the local "Black Gold" TV Series fame. I think he wore it on the show. (Well, Mr, Lemonica's a well-known around town good ol' oilman, too!) Do you like that necklace around Jimmy's neck? We were trying to cool him down. He's doing good for his, what, 14-15th hour up on that manlift?And the Starbucks…so close, yet so far away. To be honest, it's a little hot for my favorite tazo chai right now!
Dr. Boren is a local orthodontist here in Midland. This is Dr. Boren, with his beautiful family.When I first arrived, Dr. Boren was up on the scissorlift with a microphone, hawking people to come by and get free (value $4) toothbrushes! Well, it worked…there’s been a steady stream of people coming by and giving money…so far, a total of $9170…and that’s only halfway through the blogathon!!!
Here's one of the Boren boys, drawing out the name of the lucky $100 gas card winner!
MLH will be bringing Zack and Zoie by for a special appearance later…well, you know my dogs have to love fundraising, too!!
