Ok, I can't keep this to myself any longer.

Remember how at the end of the first post I wondered if we should
submit the mystery of Otis v Gray to the History Detectives show?

Well, they contacted us! I don't know how they heard about it. Could
somebody from the show have actually seen the blogpost? Or did one
of my readers who knows someone who knows someone pass it along
to them? However it happened, I am still astonished!

Now this doesn't mean it will be a segment of the show. There may not
be enough there to justify a segment.  So we'll have to see what
they find out and what they want to do.

Can you tell how excited I am by the way I'm babbling?

Anyway stay tuned for further developments.

You should be excited, and I think we all will be too, for you. Hey, maybe you will be on TV!

And Peter will be tv, too!

But I'm trying to calm myself down. There might not be enough story to justify a segment. Still, it is exciting that they would have bothered to contact us about it!

You will have to ask them how they heard of your mystery. That in itself would make a great blog post! I hope they do your story, especially since it deals with some very historical figures. Good luck!

Super exciting! You must be bouncing off the walls.

I wonder if they have Google Alerts set up and found you that way?

Coolest news ever - I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Very exciting! If you make the show I'll have to get cable.
