David’s Episode

  This link will take you to YouTube Channel.

David talked about his experience, and after seeing the episode, I feel like I need to have an intervention over my facial expressions! Ha.  Oh well.  It is who I am, and they did well with editing.  I didn’t know what to do with my hands!

Now we wait on the check to arrive (they mail it 30 days after the show airs), and then to pay the IRS.  We have a lot of bills to pay from when we got behind in life.  This will so help us crawl out of that hole.

I am feeling incredibly blessed with this man (and my family).  I am so very proud to be his wife, and share in this amazing adventure together.  We both have a great jobs, and a roof (although it needs to replaced) over our heads.  We are doing well.  This is such a bonus.

Feeling extremely grateful.

David’s Thoughts – Millionaire

So, five months after taking the initial audition test, my episode of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” finally aired last night. I have to say, I am pretty proud of how Jerry and I did. While I would have loved to have won more money, the $50,000 we did win was, as Chris Harrison said at the end of the episode, “Not a bad paycheck for 30 minutes work!”

Looking back, I am happy with the game I played. I used all my lifelines when I needed them, I thought through the questions, and I didn’t take any significant risks. (Of course, getting questions that happened to line up with the storehouse of weird knowledge I keep in my head helped immensely!)

Overall, the entire experience was an amazing adventure! And I have to say, we especially enjoyed meeting and working with the cast and crew of the show. From the folks that hosted the original test, to the producers that I interviewed with, to the production staff that took such good care of us at the studio, they couldn’t have been more supportive or encouraging. A lot of unseen work goes into making sure the final production looks good on the screen, and those folks deserve far more recognition and respect than they typically receive. So, to all of them, I offer my sincerest thanks.

If you ever get the chance to audition, I would highly recommend it! It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I am so very grateful to have been able to experience it.

Millionaire

Back in June, WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE  held open auditions in Pensacola.  David took the test, and we went home.  After several skype interviews, and emails back and forth with producers, he finally got the call to go to Las Vegas for the taping of the  show in August.  We flew out and had a great time.  It ended up being over our wedding anniversary, and birthdays (our wedding anniversary is August 20, David’s birthday is August 21, and my birthday is August 22).  082018G_David_Chancellor_ _15

To quote my hubby:  “I played the game I wanted to play.”

082018G_David_Chancellor_ _09The show airs tonight (November 15) on WEAR-TV abc3 in the Mobile/Pensacola area.  Per legal, we can’t say anything until the show airs…so everyone will have to watch to see how David did.  But I have to say we met some amazing people from other contantests to staff and producers from the show that will always have a special place in our hearts.  It was an amazing experience.

Help–Hurricane Michael

I live in the Panhandle of Florida, approximately 75 miles from where Hurricane Michael devastated Mexico Beach, and Panama City.  Other much smaller communities were destroyed as well but aren’t talked about right now.

I have posted pictures of my family and I having fun, with no damage.  It so could have been us if the storm hadn’t turn.  We were blessed by a cold front coming from the North, that’s it.  We are helping by donating items that we purchased for the storm and didn’t use.  If you feel the need to help but don’t know where to start please see below.  If nothing else, please pray for those affected and those helping.

Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office

Many of us are being contacted by family, friends, church groups and community members wanting to do something to help in regard to Hurricane Michael.

On a consolidated effort we are recommending Volunteer Florida. They are located in Tallahassee and are the lead agency for volunteerism in Florida. Their board of commissioners are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Florida Senate.

They can be reached at www.volunteerflorida.org info@volunteerflorida.org   https://www.facebook.com/VolunteerFlorida and 850-414-7400.  If you go to their website, you initially have 2 options, “donate” money or “volunteer” to choose from. Those links will take you to other pages to fill in information.

There are a lot of people that want to deliver supplies. For law enforcement, public safety, emergency workers, residents, animals, etc. We are trying to determine needs, the receiving point and coordinator for those efforts. It’s a huge effort and could sometimes cause significant logistical complications on site, and please don’t recommend anyone just head that way without coordination. They may arrive and not be allowed to enter the area, nowhere to deliver and the community doesn’t know it’s there to collect.

Blessings.

Hurricane Michael Part 3

We are fine. The eye went to Mexico Beach, and I am grateful and sad.

Our family and friends in general are fine.

We ended up playing cards and having hotdogs. Super fun, and so grateful it was just a little rain and wind.

Devastation for so many in Panama City and in the path of this storm. Prayers for those not so far away from us.

Blessed.
