This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

Good Morning America - Zzzzzzzz

We were up bright and EARLY this morning to head over to ABC (about 2 blocks from our hotel) for the taping of Good Morning America. All the regular crew was on vacation.  Bill Weir and Kate Snow (the weekend anchors) were hosting today.  They were great, but the show itself was a major sleeper!!! Lyn and I were on the off-camera side of the studio, so the only time we appear in the show is during the 8:00 sign-in and weather spot--both OUTDOORS!! So, we no sooner got warmed up in the studio than we had to put our coats back on to go out for that bit. Even tho it was an awful show and we didn't really have any studio on-camera time, it was fun. The pictures below speak for themselves.  

For those of you who may not know, Lyn is a real GMA junkie, so it was a Mecca-like pilgrimage event for us to do this. We were there in August 2007 also. The whole gang was there that day...except for Robin who was undergoing cancer treatment at the time.

I'm posting this to publish tonight at 10:00 Pacific. We'll be back in CA by then (hopefully) and our NYC adventure will be history. It's been great, but we're VERY glad to be heading home this afternoon.  California, here we come.

I would have loved to just see all of the lighting and camera angles.

By the way the "guy anchor" that you are with was a sports anchor in L.A. for a couple of years before going to GMA.

Oh yes, Billy. I always watch channel 7 news, so we knew Bill Weir when he was in LA. We were excited to see that he got the Good Morning America Weekend gig a couple years ago. I was thrilled that he was hosting on Friday. I try to catch GMA Weekends every Saturday and Sunday if I can, so I was excited that he and Kate were hosting on Friday. As we took the picture with them, I told them I watch them every weekend and that I feel like I know them. Bill said, "We feel like we know you, too!" Really??

I thought about you when we were in the studio. You would have loved it!
