Laurel Pruski and Cathy Bissell for Women’s LifeStyle Magazine

Friday, June 1st 2012 Jennifer Wilson (editor of Women’s LifeStyle Magazine) and I had an interview with Laurel Pruski and Cathy Bissell regarding the Bissell Blocktail Party 2012. The interview was in the Bissell Corporate guest house, it was a gorgeous house in East Grand Rapid’s with a beautiful view that over looked Reed’s Lake. Laurel and Cathy greeted us at the door. They were super nice, I instantly liked them. Cathy was surprised when I told her my name is Two Eagles Marcus. She then told me about an event that she had recently attended where they had an Eagle handler with a Bald Eagle and he was having the Eagle fly around above their heads in the giant dining room! I thought that sounded like a pretty amazing event. I drank 2 bottles of Pelligrino while I was there, Cathy told me that there was more Sodium in Pelligrino than in Perrier. I told her that is probably why I was so thirsty. We laughed. The curtains in the guest house were made of fireplace screen to prohibit fading, that was cool. I made a self portrait while I was there. The end.

The Bissell Blocktail Party is Thursday, June 13th 2012 from 6pm-9pm at Mangiamo! 1033 Lake Drive SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49506. All event details are available at bissellblocktailparty.com
