WSKG public television in Vestal, NY aired this piece for the week of 10/20/14 produced by Christine Lantz for their "Arts & Culture Shorts" programming. A lot of information in a short amount of time.

The people involved in this shoot were:
Judy McMahon (waitress) and Mark Roth (the toaster salesman), two very talented actors. When the idea for this shoot came up, they immediately came to mind. Also, Frank Boreffi is our cook and Ashton McCann is our mischievous eight year old boy.

Kirk & Lesli Van Zandbergen, both outstanding professional photographers helped me with lighting and more. Linda Jackson provided wardrobe, Patti Kachmir, was our hairstylist and Jeff Raichlin generously loaned me some 1950's antiques as possible props out of his massive warehouse.

I'd also like to thank the owner of the Elsie's in downtown Binghamton for the location and Bonnie & Scott (the toastmasters) at Harry Tuft's for making our toast.
