I arrived in San Antonio on Thursday evening–but my suitcase didn’t. It was already too late to shop for emergency supplies, so I ordered a room service dinner and crashed. I expected to be awakened at any time with the news that my wandering bag had found its way to me, but not so. I was so be picked up at my hotel at 2:30 pm Friday afternoon for a book signing, and the bag arrived at 2:00!
By then, I had been to the Riverwalk, the mall, and the Alamo! I had hit the nearest CVS and loaded up on a lot of cosmetics and toiletries I needed–and some I just wanted to try out. I arrived at Books-A-Million for my signing in all new clothes and makeup–the airline had promised my bag would be there before I had to leave, but my motto is, never trust an airline. I had spoken to them at least 4 times the night before.
All’s well that ends well, though.
I had a great time at Books-A-Million! I chatted for a long time with Wilma Adams, 83, who used to keep horses when she was younger. Would you believe she’s heading for Madagascar in a few weeks??? I hope I’m still having adventures like that when I’m 83!!
Greetings to all my San Antonio visitors–it was a delight to meet up with all of you. Linda Looney, thanks for the book about SA and the list of recommended research books. The Texas McKettricks live near San Antonio, on the land Lorelei owned in “McKettrick’s Choice”, along with the acreage Holt inherited from John Cavannagh, so maybe I need to come back here for a research trip!
Louise Michelson, you were a delightful escort and companion. My thanks.
I’m planning to spend tomorrow in my pajamas, cuddling with Sadie, Bernice, Cha Cha and Jitterbug.
More on Monday.
