I sure hated the suit and tie – first time in a decade I put those things on, but other than that it was fun. It was a last minute thing. They said, “Quick, get a flight, we have a hotel, take a taxi to the NBC studios in Washington DC and be there by 7:30 PM.”
So there I was seated on the plane ready to go, when …. the pilot says, “Sorry folks, the plane is being held back until 6:00 PM.” I prayed, “Lord, I will miss the show.” Five minutes later the pilot spoke again, “Buckle up, we’ve been cleared for take off!” Ten minutes later we were in the air.
Raymond Arroyo was a real pro, along with his team. I enjoyed our short time together. He is friendly, polished, personal and enjoyable to be with. Thanks to Christopher Edwards for his excellent assistance.
