Oh my gosh! That is so cool! What's the story behind this picture? I LOVE Bob Vila, we have watched TOH from the beginning.

Sue said...

I am a Huge Bob Vila fan...have watched him since the very first TOH....When husband was in the home improvement business there was a big Home Show here in Atlanta for the trade....Well you know I had to horn in on the fun...Especially when I heard Bob would be there....He was very gracious to everyone asking for his picture...just a regular nice guy....I'm only sorry I look pale as a ghost in the picture....it must have been the flash!!

I'm going to totally agree with you on that one.......This Old House was the very first "fix it" show I ever watched. I couldn't wait to get home from work on Saturdays to put my feet up and watch. I didn't have a VCR.... so it meant a really zippy drive home! Bwob (you know, that's how Nom says it).. :-) is my HERO.

Blessings!

Now is he coming to your house to do the work?

Kathleen said...

Bob Villa is the guy that started it all, there would be no HGTV if he didn't pave the way...what's it like to be his wife---remodeling job that probably never get done!

Hey Sue,

Haven't been by here in a while. So I'm trying to get around to catching up on some of my peeps blogs. I hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

hehe it's true...a good deck trumps a serenade any day! How cool to meet him!

Country Girl said...

Awesome! Yeah, I'd rather have a guy who could build a deck.

Jojo said...

Sue, The comment you left about your husband's thoughts on bloggers had me laughing. My husband along with my entire family refer to my "imaginary" friends when I mention the word blog.

Donna Longenecker said...

Wow, how cool!

Hugs,
Donna

I LOVE Bob Villa! Now, where, when and what did you say/he say! Details dearie! Details!
Like you I too think a man like Bob should be an *idol* Forget crooning, just bulid me something! I also used to say that I would take Norm Abrams over most celebrities! heck, Norm could have built me a whole house! : )

Hmm...I wonder if Brian is good with a hammer...a saw??

I know I needed to email you...I will soon but Mom is doing better. She has bad days of course but is feeling better. You are so sweet to ask. I was surely scared...*sigh*

More soon...

Love,
Sue

Susie Q said...

Whoops! I just saw the comment you left with details!! : )

Bob trumps crappy simgers any day in my book (though in fairness I've never watched American Idol so not sure "crappy" isn't a bit much...)
