Don’t Kill Us, Mariana…

…but we saw the videos of your husband Derek and had to show the world. We already love you, and I think we love him too!

We’ve done these videos before, and this is really what they look like before hitting the editing software! Way to go, Wagner Team!

    Lani – I like how you filed this under “Public Relations” … ! 😉 At least the world knows now that, contrary to popular belief, Derek is a real person, and not just an actor that I pay to show up from time to time … (ahem … Ines …)

    Monika- Oh no … Not Poor Derek … He was the one that decided that these needed to go on YouTube … It’s all his fault!

    Benn – I am pretty sure that Derek has more fun with Real Estate than most people!

    LOL…I figured Derek wouldn’t mind it being posted. I just posted a video of Jay shoveling snow off our roof…he hasn’t seen it yet so I’m hoping he’ll like it when he finally gets to see its. If not…it’s too late!

    The first time I saw these videos I almost peed my pants – and I still crack up every time I see them.

    Mariana – just becuase “Derek” shot a video does not prove he is not a paid actor (like RICK), on the contrary, she can act his head off! : )
