Home Alone

Except, of course, for the three fur faces.  Bernice the Yorkie threw a one-dog party when I came home, but the cats were only mildly interested.  Return of the human can-opener, etc.  :)

As you’ve probably noticed, blogging proved very difficult in Las Vegas–I managed a few short entries from my iPhone, but due to operator error, using the iPad was a no go.  Left to my own devices, I tend to do this kind of thing–I neglected, it seems, to sign up for something called 3G, since it never occurred to me that it needed to be done.  At home, of course, the iPad works from my regular wireless set up.  Alas.

I am exhausted–I did not even stir until 11:30 this morning, as Jen and I did not arrive back at the ranch until well after midnight.  Bernice and I celebrated, and I took a bath and fell straight into bed, where I instantly sank into a coma-like slumber and remained there for many hours.

The highlights of the trip are numerous, and I’ll probably be remembering them all week.  :)  From a people standpoint, my brother Jerry was there with a Western art group and we got together a couple of times, first for my “VIP” event at Caesar’s, a book signing held right on the casino (Paris) floor.  Fun!  I joined Jerry at South Point and sure enough, I loaded up on some of that Western art–beautiful stuff.  When it arrives, I will tweet pictures of each piece and also put them up here and on Facebook.  I am especially excited about the work of an artist named Lynn Bean (http://www.lynnbean.com/) , who uses copper to accent her paintings.  Anyway, following the auction/art show, Jerry treated me to a seafood buffet and we caught up on all the latest.  My cousin, Lee Bleecker, and his wife Margie were in town, as were daughter Wendy and fiance, Jeremy.  Wendy, Jeremy and niece/assistant Jen went on a Ghost Tour, among other things.

I did the Flint Rasmussen show–“Out of the Barrel”–and, as always, it was tremendous fun.  Met the members of a band called the Dirty Drifters–nice guys, actually, with a great sound.  I managed to cut a swath at my favorite trade show, Cowboy Christmas, like always, and didn’t over-buy. (For once.)

My fabulous publisher, Harlequin, set up a Livestream interview over the internet–that was fun!–and did numerous other things to make my trip magical.  Thanks to all of you, Michelle and Melanie in particular.  As for the folks from Caesar’s Entertainment, well, they just treated me like a queen is all.

Lots of unpacking to do, so I’d better get on with it.  Back to writing the new book tomorrow, and that rates a huge, YEE-HAW!!!
