It was freezing outside and the bed was warm, the small dog snoring softly, when the alarm rang this morning. Y’all, I did not want to get up! But I had to go to Galveston for a walking tour, and the second that first drop of coffee hit my bloodstream the excitement sunk in. I dressed warmly and drove on down. The people were very nice, new to Galveston, staying 3 weeks, and my tour was the first thing they did. So that made me feel very useful. I think they’ll have a wonderful time on the Island and they might come to my book release party on February 5th. That would be nice!
After the tour, my friend and I had a big lunch at Maceo’s. We sat outside on our favorite patio, and in the sun it actually felt pretty good. Then I drove home to my little dog and everything was all right with the world. Now if only I can convince Penelope she doesn’t need to take a Covid test because she doesn’t even have nostrils!
