Toni Niece, of Saltgrass Steak House, gave us permission to shoot some interviews at their restaurant on I-10 @ Campbell Road. Thank you, Toni, the restaurant was perfect, the food excellent and the staff incredible! Our waiter, Chris, was outstanding and took wonderful care of us. Also, thank you for the delicious appetizers! That was completely unnecessary but totally appreciated!
My trip to Salt Lake City was the best ever. I met Maurice, his wife and kids. Brenda, Maurice’s mom is an amazing lady. I felt so welcome when I walked in the house. The kids and family members made me feel at home. Maurice and I really had a great talk, fun conversation. Amazing how we both have the same thoughts about we live our lives. I know I was bless by this family. Found new friends, that I will always keep in contact with.
A producer from a U.K. production company, Darlow Smithson, came to town today to begin shooting a documentary about neurofibromatosis. They will be taping Reggie for the next seven days in Houston and Salk Lake City, Utah, along with a fellow NF’er, Maurice. Today, they shot Reggie at home getting ready for his trip to Utah, i.e., ironing, packing, talking about the trip with his mother, Dorothy, and basically documenting a day in the life of Reggie, a guy with NF.
