|This is NOT me!|
This has been a wonderful experience...finding a good friend from high school and still feeling that connection, but stronger. Our hosts, Ann and Mike have been wonderful, made us feel welcome, and even more...wanted since we've changed our return reservation twice now. This is the first time I've visited anyone where I really wasn't in a hurry to leave. You know the old saying...after three days, fish and house guests both start to stink, so I'm hoping by taking frequent showers we've avoided any problems there. :) Besides, the guest room is awesome...and there's plenty of light to go around.

Ever found a friend who shares so much in common you feel related? That's how I feel about Ann. We share many common traits, and even a few silly ones. Last night we discovered our left ankles swell. Not the right one...just the left. We both divorced after thirty plus years of marriage, we have sons the same age, we've shared some of the same issues in life, both had gastric surgery and suffer the consequences...although as you can see from the picture...her's worked. :) This is Ann and me, and I know how much I'm going to miss her when I go home. She's made such an amazing difference in my life.
Tonight, I'm going with one of Ann's friends to speak at a writer's group in Anchorage. I'm nervous and excited at the same time, but I know I have some great tips to share. Having been an author for ten years now has given me some insight into the e-industry. I'm taking my Kindle, a few copies of my books, some pens to give away, and Ann's IPad so I can demonstrate my website and videos. The members don't know it yet, but they're in for a treat. *lol* I'll post tomorrow and let you know if they share my opinion.
Wish me luck.
