Week 2: Our special guest, Lisa Cartmell. Owner and operator of Cushing Electronics, formerly Bargain Hunters. She was a smash. Caller’s said they enjoyed the show. Donna Sue gave us the thumbs up. Lisa was very poised, articulate and downright fun. Growing up in a town called Ipoh, in the tropical country of Malaysia, population a tad bigger than Cushing, 1 mil..Million that is (95 degrees all year round). Her father, 3 brothers and a sister, nieces and nephews, still live in Malaysia. Her mother passed away 6 years ago. She talked about her family coming to America, Disneyland and then Lisa met them in Vegas. The thing Lisa talked about that impressed me the most was her love of America, becoming an American citizen, and of how much she loved Oklahoma. She said people here in Cushing were so gracious and nice. She has made many friends here in Cushing, and even gave a shout out to her good friends Donna Markum and Melvin Martin. Of course we got up close and personal, learning how she & Rich were once pen pals, how she loves reality shows and even that she only weighs 80 pounds.
