It has been a busy start to summer, and summer hasn’t officially started yet, but I finally got around to making my video for Purina’s “Live from Lexington” Blog-O-Spondent contest.  Purina is looking for two people to be Blog-O-Spondents at the Games, and who better then yours truly.

Of course things come up and I find myself trying to shoot a 60 second video on the fly on the last evening to be able to submit it.  Amazingly after a number of takes I managed to get one that I at least found except-able  that came in at a minute and 2 seconds, pretty good doing that unscripted.  I am much more at ease handling the logistics of a video shoot then I am actually trying to star in and direct at the same time.  The funny thing is, I am always ready to talk about the Games to anybody willing to listen (and I am sure a few who weren’t) but it is always harder just talking to a camera.  I also have to give thanks to my horse “Charm’s Express”, she was patient with me tonight, though by the end she was tired of just looking at the grass.
