Tonight, Kari, Grace and I went up to the Inn of the Mountain Gods in Mescalero to cover their first concert of 2012 - The Pointer Sisters. As we work on expanding coverage, we don't always know what to expect and, having never been to a concert at the Inn, this was no exception. We talked to dozens of people about their favorite songs and had a wonderful time. Kari got her first chance to be on air and Grace wowed the crowd with her dancing :) The Pointer Sisters were fantastic. Additions to the original group include nieces, daughters, granddaughters - and I tell you what, those ladies can sing!
Looking forward to many more great trips up to the Inn. We'll be covering the concert series all year long, along with other events. I love every second of my job :)
It's the 3rd day of the New Year and boy is there a lot on my plate! On January 6 - just 3 short days from now - we will be broadcasting our first episode of On the Spot, our community news and events show. This show is going to highlight some of the wonderful things about Alamogordo - events, businesses, charities, etc. I think everyone is going to learn a little something they didn't know before about our community (especially the girls and I - we are introduced to new things everyday). Hope you will all tune in!
Also this Friday, we kick-off Alamogordo's year-long celebration of the state centennial. On January 6, 1912, New Mexico became the 47th state of the Union and in accordance we will be raising the 47-star flag (note: this flag was never "official" as Arizona became a state just a month later, before the flag was made official which usually happens in July - enjoy this bit of New Mexico trivia folks!).
Looking forward to a splendid new year and hope to see lots of you out at the Tularosa Basin Historical Society Museum on Friday, 10:30am, for the flag raising and other festivities.
I'm generally pulled in a million different directions and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Here's a glimpse of my life - hope you enjoy it! And if there's a big lapse between posts, well, that's the way life goes in Amy's world.
