First things first, New Channel 5 and their staff are the absolute best! Miss Vero loves, loves, loves them! They were super sweet, competent, professional and did a top notch job on covering all things Vero. The Channel 5 News was broadcast live from the Driftwood Inn Friday evening with a small but enthusiastic crowd. We spotted the Vero Chickys doing their chicky thing and snaging a promo with Channel 5. They have the best pics and videos for y'all to see. Check out the Vero Chickys!:
Not to mention that when one of our correspondents asked for an autograph for Miss Vero, Chandra Bill gasped "Miss Vero??!! We love Miss Vero! we read her blog!" Of course it helped kids, that Miss Vero sent them a welcome to Vero note before they arrived, which is only good manners.
Speaking of good manners, where was the Press Journal???!!!
As polite as the staff and crew were, every question concerning the where abouts of the Press Journal was met with downcast eyes and "I dunnos". One member of the production crew told us "It's like having a relationship with a step-sibling, even though we're family, sometimes we don't talk to each other" and he made us promise not to print his picture or tell his name, so we won't. Very strange indeed, considering that the PJ and WPTV are both owned by Scripps and are partnered with TCPalm.
Miss Vero thought that this kind of media hoopla would bring out a few local politicians. Now, we did spot a few people that had already served in office or had run for office (Don't quibble, vote for Bibble - and if y'all get that reference, check yourself off for being here way too long). But the only current running man in sight was our favorite, handsome Bill McMullen, and hunnies he is still as sweet as ever. Points to Bill for showing up!
After all the hub bub and heat, Miss Vero's posse made our way cross the bridge to the Epicenter of Cool - Undertow! We had the pleasure of being served by the Cutest Boy in Vero and Miss Kitty took a moment to tell us about Undertow website updates and the local Barack Obama campaign group meeting there on Saturday.
So y'all know we showed up. Miss Kitty said she only expected about forty people, but children that place was packed. We're talking standin room only and a lot of folks in Indian River County are excited about Mr. Obama. It was truly a news worthy event, so again we have to ask - where was the Press Journal??!!
We had saved up enough energy to keep going on Sunday, when we attended the fabulous soiree at the Count and Countess du Roseland's beach front estate. We are so happy when the Royal couple is in town because of the spectacular parties they host. And yes, we returned the silver spoons.
We did have to skedaddle early however, because the lush-ious boys at the Long Branch put us on the guest list for the male review Sunday night and well, Miss Vero doesn't like to disappoint.
Oh, my. If we tell y'all that it was hot, that would be an extreme understatement. DJ Silvio and his crew put on an ultra fabulous show and if y'all missed it, well.. let's just say everyone was havin so much fun that we probably shouldn't post any of the pictures. If y'all are lookin for a party the Long Branch is the only game in town. They have one more party coming up on August 3rd and kids if y'all have any life left in ya, get yourself there! http://collect.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=music.showDetails&Band_Show_ID=34775770&friendid=381676972
Miss Vero is now officially exhausted!
But doing it all for y'all...
P.S. A big shout out to the most wonderful Lee Dee who should not blame his headache this morning on Miss Vero!
