The big REVEAL: 2 Truths and 1 Lie

Ok, I'm a day late, and always a dollar short, but here is my BIG REVEAL in the 2 Truths and 1 Lie blog carnival!! Did you play along? Did you guess RIGHTLY SO?? :)

~ I once played the violin on live TV in Duluth, and the show's creator was Duluth's current Mayor's father.
This is TRUE!!! I was in 6th grade, and it was my first year taking Violin lessons. The small group of us from my school played on an afternoon variety type live show that an entertainer named Don Ness, Sr. televised and hosted. His son, Don(ny) Ness and brother also appeared in skits on that same show. I later attended Junior High with Donny, and he's now the Mayor of Duluth, which is amazing!

~ I appeared in Peter Frampton's home movies, as I was mistaken by his young daughter as their nanny aboard a snorkeling charter boat in the Keys.
This is also TRUE! In 2000, over Easter break (long weekend) I took a trip with a then boyfriend to the Florida Keys. We stayed in Islamorado, but snuck into the Cheeca Lodge, and went out on a snorkeling excursion with a group. The leader of the group informed us that Peter Frampton and his family would also be on the boat, and they were. While coming onto the boat after being in the water, Peter's then 3 year old daughter Mia ran up to me, and mistook me for the Nanny. You see, the Nanny and I resembled each other very much so, and we both had on black bikinis! The girl asked me why I had a tattoo on my back, and when did I get that, while laughing. During the whole time, Peter was actually using his video camera to record this, and then came up and introduced himself to me, and apologized for his daughter. Of course, that was fine with me, but the daughter was upset that she got confused and he had to comfort her! Come to find out now, she is apparently an actress! :) My little brush with fame in the "real world".

~ I also appeared as an extra in the movie Iron Will, that was filmed in Duluth in 1994.
FALSE. LIE. I, in fact, did NOT appear as an extra for the movie, but knew several people that supposedly did show up to be in some group scenes. During that time, I was attending college and would've loved to be in some of the movie! A friend of mine - her back yard can be seen in one racing scene in the woods, though! :)
