Am I Violating Copyrights? Nah...

" Good evening..I am Grace and here is your 6:00pm news."
What do I know...but here is the story. See that picture I use as a banner? It was chosen by a local television station to be used in a promo spot. I guess they now own the rights huh? But till I am told to do so, I will keep it up 'cause, darn it. I took it and I like it! I was also asked to come down to the station and record a promo using the words that I wrote to describe Dayton that accompanied the photo.
It was scaled down to just a few lines to better fit the time allowed and I had to go in and be filmed saying said words. The photo will be used as the back drop. I had lots of fun doing it and Grace loved being there and watching it all. Doesn't she look fantastic delivering the news? Sign this kid up!
"This is Grace with your evening forecast! It will be hot where it is not cold and rainy when it is not sunny. You may get snow or you may not. Back to you Mark!"
The people were fantastic and I am always up for a new life experience. *sigh* Meeting movie stars and filming television promos...what will I do for fun NEXT week?
Have a wonderful weekend dear friends! I am sorry not to have been a better visitor this week. I am trying to get around to see you all. I have been needed to watch my nephew this week so that has taken up a lot of my free time. But no complaints as you all know how much I adore this little boy! He is my heart!
Be good to yourselves and smile becasue you are loved!
Love and Hugs,
Susie Q

Sue! That is just SO COOL!! I can imagine Grace was just so excited!
Did you tape it? (or Tivo or dvr it, or whatever the latest thing is - I dont' know, I still do the VCR tapes! haha) Did Grace's friends see it? That is just so exciting! I'm happy for all of you - that's the thrill of a lifetime.
