Fall Fling

It was a fabulous weekend. I met a few new delightful people. And I spent some time with great peeps I've known. One of the best parts (of course) was getting to spend some face-time with a couple of my dearest friends. I am exhausted. The drive was breathtaking, but I was fairly close to sleep driving . . . the spontaneous shower bursts after dark didn't help - can I just tell you?

When I post a recap ... some names may be changed to protect the innocent. :)

Let me just tease this: Though our hotel didn't actually catch on fire, I think I was still feeling the effects of my alcohol consumption when the fire alarm went off (after a mere 3 hours of sleep) and all the smoke simply nauseated me - not a great way to start a day of driving.

Thank you to Eric and Fiona for hosting a fine event, gracing me with their hospitality and allowing me to add to my list of peeps. The pleasure was mine.

Here are some pictures from my beautiful - if not a little strange - drive home - no blogmeet pics - What? I don't play and tell.

You are da bomb, sister...a real kindred...I could listen to you talk and look at your cute face all day. And for the record, if Christina is reading this, YES, she gave me a serious, big ole hug from you, so thanks for that!

It was truly a pleasure getting to schmooze with you (and hanging out with all of youse in the f**king parking lot of the hotel at Before The Crack O'Dawn Thirty). Hey, what's a Blown Eye Blodgemeet without a good, old-fashioned Drahr Fahr, am I right?

Came over from Eric at Straight White Guy - I have enjoyed your comments for a while. Don't know what took me so long to come over and visit your blog! 1)You have a beautiful family; 2) you take great pictures; 3) You are reading my mind as to the current state of politics and the upcoming elections!

I'm so glad I found you!

Is that West Virginia scenery? Particularly the middle picture (New River Gorge)? Looks awfully familiar.
