Getting Ready

I have some serious work to do to get ready to leave tomorrow morning. Somehow, I am still stuck in dithering mode. I went to a meeting this morning where I met a fellow who is on his way to San Antonio from Germany! What a great story he had!

I borrowed two Willie Nelson CDs from my daughter who is NOT going. It seems right to me to listen to Willie while driving through Texas. Note to Texans: you don't need to disabuse me of this notion if it is not authentic. I would allow you to listen to John Denver while driving into Colorado - even though it might make me shudder, I would do so in silence. My iPhone has so much technology to avoid ever having to listen to local radio, it is kind of sad, because I love local radio while traveling. I guess there could be long patches of Texas with NO radio?

And then there is a hurricane? Oh, I will just skip thinking about that right now.

I am awaiting my daughter's call. Then we shall go shopping (so that she might have at least one article of clothing that isn't emblazoned with "Harley Davidson") and prepare for our trip tomorrow.

Yeah, I guess you could say I am excited.

xoxoxo - see some of you soon...

I have a Willie Nelson CD in my VW.
Drive safely and call if you need anything.

Sooooo excited for you!!!! I soooo wish I could attend but not enough vacation and money seem to be an issue lately...LOL!! Maybe the next one that happens to occur in the US...The conference is all the "buzz" here in PA and my understanding is that alot of my fellow statesman will be there to represent!!! Tell all the PA people hello for me when you meet them!!!

Have fun in Texas! And it is entirely appropriate to listen to Willie. He is an institution. Also, please go listen to my friend Cliff G. Friday morning if your schedule permits. He's a bit of an institution too.

I wish we were driving. We've got flights from Seattle to Denver to San Antonio. You never know with hurricanes - we'll be there when we get there!

Hope to meet you. My husband Art wears a goofy straw hat with a green "Seattle 1990" button. Stop us if you see us.
