A good day

Today was a good day. We drove to West Virginia with two good friends to a party hosted by another good friend where we met more friends and even made new friends. You can't ask for more from a Saturday, although it would have been nicer if the sky had been blue instead of gray. Still I would rather have gray skies and good friends than good weather and no friends. And the hundreds of daffodils looked beautiful even in the rain.

Today's pic is of me and my husband taken at the World Fantasy Convention last fall, in Austin TX. My husband is very proud of his bow tie. He tied it himself--no pre-tied ties for him. Scott, our host from today, was also at Austin and he might even have taken this picture. Although it might have been Sharon. I'm not sure. We were all dressed up for the banquet. Today's party was more casual, but just as much fun.

Risa, one of our ride-along friends today, sent me this cute exercise, which I found waiting for me when we got home. Try it!

1. go to www.google.com
2. click on "maps"
3. click on "get directions"
4. type " New York " in the first box (the "from" box)
5. type " London " in the second box (the "to" box)
6. click on "get directions"
7. scroll down to step #23

So-- long drive, but a good day.
