Actually, they told me that after they left NYC, they were going up to Bangor, Maine.
Is that where KZ is?

Not only did we get to meet Buckytom, but one of his co-workers is actually a DC member (although he hasn't posted yet), so we met Bucktom and HunkyDorey (whose name is also Tom). He was a really interesting person to talk to. He has traveled all over the U.S., Japan, and I think other places. We talked about his interest in all kinds of foods today.

The pictures are of Buckytom, James, and me, and there is one of Buckytom and Hunkydorey. There are 3 of James at the sports desk and one of me. Mine looks dumb because I was talking as James took it (I was acting like I was going to hit a button). Buckytom was worried that we might be bored as he showed us around CBS, but we were both totally fascinated with everything! He said I'm the only one who took pictures of the equipment. Seeing where BT works was great, but talking with him was the best part.

We also got to see more pictures of BT's adorable son and of his beautiful wife.

We also saw Andy Rooney, just after we arrived. Didn't get a picture though.

LOL I couldn't remember HunkyDorey's name, so I was looking it up as you posted this! I didn't want to post the pictures until I remembered his name! Here are some more.

They are of us all saying goodbye. There is one that I took holding the camera toward all of us. You can see BT and James, and on the right you can see one of my eyes, my nose, and half of my mouth! lol The last picture was one that fascinated me--all the wires that go to goodness knows what!

Thanks again Buckytom for the great tour, and especially for the great conversation! And please tell Tom D. that we really enjoyed our conversation with him as well.
