My wife's a star!

I posted this great video produced by the Buffalo Niagara Convention & Visitors Bureau a couple weeks ago. At the time, I didn't realize my wife was in the video! She can be seen around 3:11 walking out from between two houses on Summer Street. The footage was shot during Garden Walk this past year as part of an effort to produce a video similar in quality to this one about gardening in Buffalo.

Anyone that knows Leslie will recognize her instantly.
The videographer, director, and editors had no idea that was my wife. And, maybe even more amazingly, the cottage to the left, in green and yellow is the house we rented from 1987-91. Between it being our old house, my wife, and video shot ostensibly for Garden Walk, of which I am president, it was pure luck, chance, fate, kismet, happenstance, destiny or a coincidence that she ended up in this production.

I, of course didn't even recognize her in the video. Our friend Greg pointed her out to me. She's roughly in the spot where Greg fell and broke his ankle in our driveway, circa 1989, coming to our house to watch 30 Something.
And today, the video has its debut in Times Square in NYC as part of a Buffalo "Tailgate Party" for ex-pats. It's had more than 120,000 views on YouTube.
