Why You Won't Be Hearing From Me...

No, not forever...Just till Monday.

Heading out tomorrow for the South Carolina Book Fest to stake my claim in the Echelon booth.

These types of venues are fantastic opportunities to connect with readers... Well, people in general. People are themselves pretty fantastic when you get right down to it, aren't they?

That's one reason WHY I'm looking forward to this trip...That and the piece of Dove Dark Chocolate I award myself for every book sold!

Why, You Shouldn't Have!

Flowers are a given for some people. Fresh-cut blossoms are as much a fixture in their home as the kitchen sink.

For others of us, they are a luxury, an indulgence.

I fall in the that latter category. (Though I keep saying I'm going to start buying fresh flowers every week.)

But if I did, would a gift bouquet like this one from my daughter and her family still seem as special?

Oh, I can't imagine anything detracting from the beauty and the love that went into sending this elegant arrangement.

And of course, my second thought (after the initial "Oh, how lovely!") was, "Why, you shouldn't have..."

My third thought? Oh, but I'm so glad you did...

At the end of the day, when someone does something special for a woman like me, WHY is it a given she'll respond with..."Why, you shouldn't have?"

happY birthdaY, marY!

For one day...And for one day only, she's two years older than me. But I hardly EVER mention it.

Today's that daY.

Lucky for us, we're doing a TV taping today, discussing our co-authored book WOOF: Women Only Over Fifty. Gee, isn't THAT great timing?!??!

That's Mary (in red), yours truly, Mary's son, John, and granddaughter, Brittany.

Anyhoo, HappY BirthdaY to my bestest bud...

Now, why don't I just drop this silly thing about you being TWO years older than me today.... :>)
