I guess you don't have to guess where I was!?!!
Yeppers!! I went to OKC to join the craziness of having a cookbook signed by PW.
She gave a great little presentation about her life and how all of the excitement came to be.
It was a lot of fun to hear her take on the craziness of her life! And she treated us to a little singing!!
When I arrived, it was a
wee bit LOT crowded! There were no chairs and hardly any places to stand. But, these two ladies were sitting on a sofa and there was a little spot beside them and next to another gal on the floor where I could pop a squat. So, I did...
and made myself a couple of friends!! They had called in and had put their name on the line list and apparently one of their friends was unable to join them. SO, they had an extra ticket for group #4!! Yea, when I arrived and got on the list... I was given a ticket to group #9. Each group had about 50 people in it - and would be about an hour wait through each group. Yes, I made new friends... new BEST friends!!!
Then we waited in line... it was a great bookstore! They had those shelves that go all the way up the walls... and ladders that roll on a track around the room.
Bud thought they were so cool! So, I had him climb up one and take a few pictures of her signing books while we were waiting...
Not bad!! I had to crop in to see her very well... but mostly in focus!!
Then it was "our" turn. My one new friend had MANY books for PW to sign.
Oh, wait! YEA!! LOTS of books! PW doesn't put a limit on how many she will sign - she will sign whatever books of hers that you put in front of her. So, this lovely gal had brought books for friends and cattle organizations that she was gifting the book to. SUCH a cool idea - but the stack was a little shocking!
We talked a bit... always I think of some interesting thing to talk about and it all gets forgotten and we ended up talking about blog stalkers and how she used to not share her last name or children's names... just like I have a pseudonym and use them for my treekids.
She was worried that some serial killer might stalk them and ... I said, "WHAT out on your ranch a million miles from town? How would they find you... and wouldn't you just get out your guns anyway and "take care of business"? She laughed and pulled out her air-shotgun and took aim. I asked if she didn't have one of those signs that showed a gun and says, "We don't call the police."
She laughed, we chuckled... my turn was over as the next person was coming through. Hmmmmm. Well, I'll have to think about sharing my brilliant thoughts another time. In fact, there is always Wichita on the 12th or Ponca City on the 20th... I'm hoping Pops' schedule will get a little slower so that I can make an attempt to go without children!! Wish me luck!!
