Yesterday was just fabulous! First, lunch at Luna with Sam and Janet and my new best friends, Gail and Regina, who are both associated with Spokanimal. We got on like the proverbial house afire!
It was on from there, through rainy streets, to the spiffy “new” Albertson’s store in Liberty Lake. Jerry and Debbie, thank you for all you did to welcome me to the store. It was grand! The folks from Benjamin News came, too–Julie and the whole group made me feel like a big star. After a very successful signing–a lot of you turned out–we all went to Clinkerdagger’s for a big dinner. The food was terrific, and the company even better.
Sam and Janet–what can I say? I love you both. It is ALWAYS a pleasure to spend time with you. Have a safe trip home and hug the puppy for me.
In a little while, I’m off to collect Sister Pam, and we’ll hook up with Sister Sally later. The Lael reunion is this weekend, and it will be bittersweet. First year without Dad. Brother Jerry, stepmother Edith, my sisters and I will be heading up to Northport to scatter his ashes on familiar ground. There will be a few tears, and a lot of laughter as we all share favorite memories.
Sally and Pam and I plan to have a ‘sisterly’ at the lake house on Sunday. We’ll be shopping, eating, and messing around with polymer clay.
These are the things that count.
Have a wonderful weekend!
