July Friends Drift Inn TV with Chef Jeremy Ashby

Behind the Scenes and “On Set”

We giggle way too loud. Sometimes they call security.

We understand the art of opening the refrigerator claiming to be looking for vegetables, when what we really want to do is to hit our hot flashes with a cool arctic blast.

Sometimes we wear sandals.

There are lipstick police amongst us.

We are painfully honest and brutally catty.

As I make this journey called Friends Drift Inn the blog, the newspaper column, and now the local Pike TV show I do not navigate alone.

Deana Prop Mistress of FDI kitchen...I mean "set"

Deanna keeps the big red barn kitchen, hmmmmm I mean “set” decluttered and propped. She keeps me from coming unglued. She IS “Keeper of the Lipstick.”

Rhoda checks quality control at FDI kitchen...I mean "set"

Rhoda makes sure that I am wearing said lipstick and no spinach is hanging from my teeth. She is also quality control officer.

Anita my sister-in-law and Pointy Toed Shoe Sister

Anita helps greet as the production crew and featured guests roll in. Her son Jacob is the motivator behind Friends Drift Inn. Her brother Charlie is my partner in life.

"Lisa" I mean Ms. Tracy she knows how to "share the giggles"

Tracy is a brilliant businesswoman and has an alter-ego “Lisa” who escapes to Green Acres come the weekend. She is our comic relief; sharing the giggles!

That's a wrap!  Episode 5 of Friends Drift Inn with Joyce Pinson

I love them all.

There is a rule here at the barn; no one helps clean the kitchen…err I mean “set.” I want guests; not Merry Maids.

But after a day of shooting, just this once I can tell you I am ever so thankful to the Pointy Toed Shoes Sisters for sneaking in the kitchen “on set” and helping get things back in order while I took my guest Chef Jeremy Ashby for a tour of the Friends Drift Inn Garden.

Girls you are the best…..and I thank you for “Sharing the Giggles.” Pointy Toed Shoes Sister Rock!
