This ole cowgirl is getting a little punchy! I’m used to keeping pretty early hours, on both ends of the day. Now, I have to have a wake-up call so I don’t sleep until noon!
Yesterday was a full day. Having already hit CowboyChristmas, over at the LV Convention Center, I decided to scope out Cowboy Marketplace and another show at the Sands–the name escapes me. I love looking at the work of all those fabulously talented artisans. Always find something different.
I was back at the hotel by 1pm, in order to have lunch with my long (loooong) time friend, Robyn Carr. (Virgin River series.) Robyn brought daughter Jamie along, and granddaughter, Layla. We talked a mile a minute, catching up. Later, my buddy Steve Miller, whose sculptures you see on the site as prizes, joined us, along with two friends of his. And then, later still, Nancy Berland and her sister, Carol, showed up, too.
Carol and Nancy and I almost immediately headed for the Strip in their rental car. (No, we didn’t gamble. We went to Fashion Show Mall. ) I’d found these fantastic jeans–Not Your Daughter’s Jeans, they’re called, at Dillard’s, on a previous visit, and I wanted to stock up.
Back at the hotel, we had a late dinner with Mary Ann Miller, who is a fourth-generation World Champion roper. (And gorgeous, to boot.)
I’m on Flint Rasmussen’s radio show today, so when I got back to the room after dinner and a lot of visiting, I curled my hair before finally tumbling into my bunk, practically with my boots still on.
After all, a girl has to look good on the radio.
