The trip begins at Southwest Airlines at Islip's MacArthur Airport.
After a busy day at the Chapter Leadership Seminar, there's nothing like relaxing in a chaotic room with thousands of people, signing books to benefit literacy! Note the glass of wine near my books that Chief Fetcher, Trisha, got me. (She spoils me. I'll miss her when I give up the presidency.)
Hey, look! See that blondish looking head? That's Queen Nora herself, giving her inspiring yet entertaining keynote speech.
Bitch Wine, the official vintage of Dunes & Dreamers at Conference! Don't believe me? Take a look at the cap:
Okay...so maybe I should 'splain. I got this fabulous bruise on my arm from schlepping my books after the Literacy Signing. Since he was big and still noticeable on Saturday night, we drew a face on him and decided he was my "arm candy" for the evening. His name? Fred.
After the awards ceremony Saturday night, we got together with some dear friends for 007's and laughs. Left to right: Carolyn Hughey (Bling Girl), Chelsea Gilmore, and Elizabeth No Last Name who fit right in with her wonderful sense of humor and fabulous twang.
Trisha sporting her hair gear (mandatory for all the Dunes & Dreamers that night!) Perhaps she senses a scandal behind us!
