Me, Myself & Ty

Finally, an update for all you inquiring minds!

What a wild week … Yes, I did meet Ty … the night I actually wrote my post. I was sitting at home and my friend calls from a local bar/restaurant to tell me that the Home Makeover crew have stopped in. It just so happens that their hotel is across the street from my favorite Tuesday/Thursday night hangout.

I looked like holy Hell … but I went up there anyway. What a scene… you’d have thought most of these people hadn’t seen anyone famous in their whole lives! I wanted to tell them what my momma always told me “Act like you have some sense!” It wouldn’t have mattered.

I really felt kinda sorry for the cast … because they couldn’t take a bite, or a drink without someone coming up and wanting to talk to them or have their picture taken…. (me included).

Ok, about Ty -- He’s really cute. Cute, and skinny, and not as tall as you might think. He’s very, very animated… kinda like he is on the show. I didn’t hang out with him as much as I did the other cast members and crew. Wherever Ty went turned into a mob scene.

About the show: I didn’t realize that local volunteers do most of the work … from the actual construction, to craft projects. (I painted everything that couldn’t get away from me, and worked on a chandelier made entirely of safety pins.) The work goes on 24 hours a day. They put neighbors in hotel rooms so the work won’t disturb people in the middle of the night.
After the family left for Florida, volunteers come in and empty out the old house … none of the old stuff goes into the new house … it’s absolutely fascinating to see how it happens. See for yourself, the episode airs on July 10th.

About the family: The crew surprised the Nick family on the 10th anniversary of the eldest daughter being abducted from a ballpark. Her name is Morgan Nick, and she was 6 years old. She’s not been seen or heard from since. The family would not agree to be featured unless Morgan’s story was told … as the Mother said, 24 million people will hear her story and see Morgan’s latest age-appropriate photo … hopefully out of 24 million viewers, one of them will call in with a lead. She still firmly believes that Morgan is alive somewhere. Her age progressed photo is attached. God bless and comfort the Nick family.

One thing that impressed me is that the mother was on the news one night stating that she didn’t care what the designers did, as long as Morgan has a room in the new house. The designers were not aware of this wish … so in the middle of the process… they changed plans … and added a room for Morgan. It was very caring and touching.

If you get a chance, watch the two-hour special episode airing July 10th.

It blew me away what they did to this shack in Atlanta. I didnt watch the show but because it was local it was in the paper. Glad you had a chance to meet him.
