Your reporter and hubby Lee were honored to be tour guides for Huell Howser, of “California Gold.” In costume, we followed his direction on what he wanted to film for the show. Getting in on the action was Lynn Duckworth and her dogs Three Toes and Red. They will be in the opening scene. His idea was to be looking for old wood and his hunt took us around town, through the Pecan Grove at the park and ended up at the Covered Bridge. It was really an eye opener on how Huell and his cameraman worked. In the saloon, young Phil Frymire got his hat autographed! Show time will be announced.
