My wife, supermodel

Very cool to go from customer service rep to national spokes model. Does make me think more of her company in that it uses real workers and not hired models.

+1 -- whoever has come up with that is brilliant -- hope that it is your wife, and not a marketing person. If it's the latter, then I'd be taking credit for it and owning the statement if I were your wife. :wink:

Yes, those are her words. I so married up!!!
I thank you and she thanks you for your kindness
She is, at a later date supposed to be in, if we got this right, around 100 national publications.

This is sure a once in a lifetime deal, to be sure.

My only personal claim to fame is that I'm on the back cover of a Henry Repeating Arms catalog, and in the website of same.

Great ad.

A good friend of mine, a part-time actor, is currently the face of welfare fraud in the UK. These posters are up at every airport here. :lol:

My hand was in a brochure once (for an Agfa imagesetter: the Bigfoot!). Does that count as being a Fabulous model? :7)
