Didn’t get home last night until one a.m., but what a great trip. When ACFW was done and after I checked out of the hotel, my pals from college, Steve and Tammy Reitenour, picked me up for lunch. I had reconnected with them and met Tammy’s sister, Trish (also an LU graduate), so we went for lunch and talked and talked and talked . . . while Steve kept asking the waitress for updates on the current football game. 🙂
It’s such a great thing to reconnect with Christian friends–it’s like you’ve never been apart; you only need a little time to catch up on events that transpired in between. We discovered that we had a lot in common (since Steve and I are about the same age), and Steve has become a lawyer who deals with intellectual property law, copyrights, and patents . . . good for a writer to know! LOL!
In any case, it was a wonderful afternoon. I was reading Charles Martin’s latest book on the plane home, and the couple next to me was fascinated by my Kindle. I had to stop and display all its features . . . . Amazon should pay me a commission. 🙂
Well–a stack of mail is waiting, a few emails still need to be answered, and I’m sure there’s a mountain of clothing in the laundry room. Groan. And I haven’t even begun to unpack my suitcase . . .
Have a great Monday! Oh–and one of these pictures is from that Mall of America book signing. It was wild!
