It was a mother and dog reunion, when I got home late last night. Sadie and Bernice practically turned inside out with delight–I can’t think of anybody who has ever been as glad to see me as those two.
The California tour was wonderfully hectic–I met a lot of nice people, got the star treatment, and even worked in a trip to a fabulous bead store in San Diego, called the Bead Gallery. While there, I got the news that “McKettrick’s Luck” was on the New York Times bestseller list for the 4th week in a row–#11 this time!
I also got to stop at Chico’s, in Palm Springs. Good thing I took an extra suitcase along! I really loaded up.
The barn is still a work in process. The well has been dug, and some of the trees have been cleared. I’m leaving as many as I can–I love trees and, besides, the horses need shade and something to scratch against.
Working is hard, when I’m on the road so much, but tomorrow it’s back to the computer in earnest.
