"Virtual" Friends

A true friend is one who thinks you are a good egg even if you are half-cracked. ~ Author Unknown

Okay, so I know I was going to do interview questions today, but I didn't have time to get to them yesterday. Tomorrow will be the day. I hope.

Yesterday, I spent the a.m. with my DH and DD and then headed out to the Barnes and Noble store in Nashua to meet Michele (!) -- and do a bit of shopping.

I had DD with me, because DH was going hunting, but had promised her a new book and a big Starbucks cookie. We got into town about 12:20, so hit the bookshelves. DD couldn't decide what to buy until we hit the classics rack. B&N were having a deal -- buy 3 for $19.95 (a little more than I had planned to spend, but... books... I can't resist). DD's eyes got big: THREE BOOKS? She could choose THREE?

She selected The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Robin Hood, and The Adventures of King Arthur. And, a triple chocolate chunk cookie. *G*

Michele showed up just before 1 p.m. and her DH took her kidlets off to a guy thing, saying he'd be back in two hours. WOW! We'd have forever to talk. Whatever would we find to talk about?

We found plenty. We gabbed, and gabbed, and gabbed... we even called Judy for a few minutes since she couldn't be there. And then Michele's DH and kidlets showed up, grabbed some snacks and gave us another half hour, and THAT flew by, too.

I suspect we could have had the entire day and still never shut up. Ha. It was a good time. I can't wait until we can do it again. It just won't be at the B&N cafe again -- you'd have thought it was a library, the way folks were giving us hairy eyeballs if we talked too loud. Sheesh.

=========================

HELP! The Long and the Short of It is in DESPERATE (did I mention that we're desperate?) need of reviewers. We have tons and tons of review requests and nowhere near enough folks to read and review them. Do you have time to read and review two stories a month? Short, novella, long... we have them all! Mostly eBook, occasionally print... all the romance you can stand. If you can help out, drop me a line.

Please. Help.
