Fun Days in Idaho!

I have a very, very busy October. Why? Because I goofed off most of September. Well, not exactly, but I sure didn't get any writing done. It started with a writing retreat with Judith Laik. We went to Chelan, Washington, where we brainstormed a few books. Speaking of Chelan, Honey went along and she had quite a good time. Of course you know that adult beverages and brainstorming go hand in hand.
We won't mention that I locked myself out of the condo. I had on ugly pajamas and no wine. Or even coffee. No phone, either, but I had my Kindle, so at least I could read and text Diane Garland about my woes.
I was back a day and Honey wanted her hair and nails done, so off to the salon we went. I've been going to Marty DeGrazia since forever (1988) and this time Honey wanted to go first. Then Mai was a bit hesitant about the manicure, but Honey convinced her it was a good idea.
So off we go to Idaho. First off--the NF Walk. This is a fundraiser for the Children's Tumor Foundation for the purpose of finding a cure for neurofibromatosis, which is a physically and emotionally debilitating disorder. We had a great time.

Next stop, Silver City! Y'all know I love Silver City and the second weekend in September is very special because it's the only time the public can see inside the buildings. All the buildings there are privately owned and also privately funded by people who truly love history and walk the talk. If you visit, don't forget to leave a few dollars in the jar for nail and paint.

And from there, we went to see the Beatles! Okay, not the REAL Beatles, but let me tell you, this retro band, RoofTop Revolution, is awesome! And of course I'm prejudiced because one of the lead singers also performed at my Silver City shindig in June

When we got home (exhausted), guess what? Honey's second book came out!
