Camouflage Sam

Meet "Camouflage" Sam: he's a popsicle-stick figure that Julia made for her brother, and he's been on many adventures. He's been stampeded by chickens, held on for dear life as he ran through the pasture attached to a dog collar, and he even got snuffled by a pig. Em took the picture of Julia, Sam, and Camouflage Sam on the right. Emily and Julia have been having quite a fun time together, making a whole civilization of popsicle-stick figures clad in naught but pipecleaners. I have a lovely yellow dress and saucy red shoes. I like that about me. It took camo for Sam to become interested, but become interested he did! Camouflage Sam was his best buddy for at least a week, going everywhere with him.

Ms. McNay,

I am a producer with the ABC Hit television show Wife Swap-now in it's 4th
season. We are looking for families run thier households outside the norm, opting for a more relaxed households with fewer rules and regulations to
participate in this once in a lifetime experience.

I thought I might reach out to you to see if you would be interested in participating in Wife Swap or perhaps you could recommend a family you think would be great candidates for our show.

Wife Swap is a fascinating story of what happens when two married couples
see themselves and their spouses in a whole new light. The New York Post
says, "It should be called ‘Life Swap’ because it's not just the wives who
learn something here. It's the families."

The premise of Wife Swap is that one parent from each household swaps
places for a week to experience how another family runs their lives. It
is an incredible family experience and opportunity to both learn and teach
different family values.

Potential families must consist of two parents that have at least one
child age 5 or older and can live anywhere in the United States. Families
featured on the show will receive a $20,000 honorarium. If you refer a
family that is selected you receive $1,000.

To submit for the show please call 646-747-7945, or email a family photo
and description to marvin.daye@rdfnewyork.com.

I look forward to hearing from you.
