Well, this blog doesn't have anything to do with doing actual dirty jobs, but it does have to do with the TV show Dirty Jobs. Mike Rowe and the Dirty Jobs crew came in to Bethel this morning to start getting things ready for swabbing duck butts! Yes you read that right, swabbing duck butts. There was a get together tonight at the Deputy Managers house (Doug) and Mike Rowe himself was there. Of course I had to do the star struck take a picture thing so here are a few from the night.
This is Mike wearing a Lynx hat that belongs to Doug's son Dalton. Dalton was the one who had the idea of sending Dirty Jobs the email about the duck swabbing. One email was all it took to get them interested.
And here of course is the obligatory photo of the "star" with the little people. Excuse the expression on my face. I believe someone said something and I laughed a little too hard! I told Mike that I had to do the "touristy thing" and he said that it was his pleasure and that he was the tourist.
For those of you that haven't seen the show basically what they do is go around the country doing jobs that people contact them about that they think are "dirty" jobs. This guy is just as funny in person as he is on TV. Doug (the Deputy Manager of the Refuge) brought up the idea of putting VITs (vaginal transmitters) in the moose that Eric works with and Mike seem interested in the idea. How knows, come April they may be back here following Eric around with his moose work!!!!!
Well, that's about it for my night. I'll post more later ~ Amy
