The Medina Community Library!

Today has been great. For lunch I cooked us Cousin Nancy's Almond Lemon Chicken, a recipe that I recently stole from my best friend Carol. And Cousin Nancy's Cheese Grits Casserole, that I stole several years ago from my dear friend Sandy. Our lunch was absolutely delicious. Tony loved my recipes and he took second servings and he cleaned his plate.

Around 2:00 after doing some paperwork, Tony and I jumped into Trigger and I drove us to Medina to run a few errands and my driving didn't scare Tone. Our first stop was at the Post Office. Then we went to the Medina Community Library, so we could talk to Mary Ellen, the new director of the library.

Tony talked first. He told our friend Mary Ellen about the new camera club that he and many of his friends are excited about starting and then they discussed the dates that were available for their first meeting. They decided on Saturday, February 9th.

Then it was my turn to talk to Mary Ellen about doing a February book signing at the Medina Community Library for my new mystery, cliffhanger novella, The Cowgirl Sisterhood: The Membership Drive, Part I and we decided that the best time to have my very first book signing for my new novella would be on Saturday morning, February 23rd from 10:30 - 12:00. Then we discussed press releases, etc.

Then we adios-ed her and walked across the street to talk to our friend and her husband, Dr. James Lindstrom, DVM, to talk about our pigs, which turned out to be pretty funny.

After we adios-ed James and his friendly staff I drove us down the street to the Old Timer, so Tony and I could buy a pint of ice cream, so we could take it home and split it. When we walked out of the Old Timer I handed Tony the truck keys and said, "Thanks for letting me practice my driving. You can drive us home, because I want to read the newspaper and he was relieved and more than thrilled about driving us home.

When we finished eating our ice cream, I finished my day taking care of paperwork and returning a few phone calls. Then I called Kinky to tell him about my upcoming book signing and he was thrilled, so I want to thank Mary Ellen for helping us today, because I am so looking forward to the book signing. And that is about it for today.

Y'all have a great evening!

Hi Richard. He was my sister's vet too and we enjoy working with him. We started our rescue ranch in Utopia, but moved it 11 years ago to Kinky's ranch between Kerrville and Medina. I agree it is beautiful country, too.
