With a nod to the great Mary Travers . . .
my bags are packed and I'm ready to go . . .
And I'm excited.
You may recall that last year was my first Bouchercon, and I had just the best time ever. I'm excited about this one, and know I'll just have the best time ever (again!).
Last year I went not knowing what on earth I was getting into, but quickly felt as though I had found my tribe. A lot of people had told me this was what would happen - but I was skeptical, to say the least. But I'm here to tell you - the mystery community is just the greatest, most generous, most welcoming group of people on God's green earth. For real.
This year I'm going with a load of fun plans made well in advance. The fun begins bright and early at the Greensboro Airport where I'm meeting my traveling buddy, BG.
We're then meeting up with some more North Carolina folks - but not until we reach the Indianapolis Airport. From there BG & I plan on sharing a limo with Karen and Molly and Vicki to our hotel. Dinner plans Wed. night with Mary Jane, Liz, Sandy, Caryn, Vicki, Molly and Karen, a 6:30 breakfast Thursday morning with Judy, lunch with WendySis & Jonathan, dinner . . . . and the list goes on . . . . right up until the convention comes to an end on Sunday afternoon.
And if you'll stop back by next week, I'll tell you all about it. With a beezillion pictures to boot.
Y'all. It is going to be too fun! I'm excited.
Looking forward to seeing a lot of you there.
Sad that I'll be missing several of my favorite folks who are unable to be there this year . . . You will be missed!
