Have I mentioned....

Rabbit, rabbit!  It is the first day of the month!  July has arrived!!

Have I mentioned that Susan Branch (and Joe) have been on a cross-country book signing trip?  They left Martha's Vineyard on April 30, and they are nearing home.

Have I mentioned that I would be in Asheville at Malaprops Bookstore for her book signing there?

There was great excitement as she entered the store!

After a brief book talk and question/answer time, it was time for the book signing!

Joe was good to mingle with us as we waited our turn.

Susan spent time to interact with each one of us!

Finally, it was my turn!

The tray was a gift of several interesting treats from Tennessee, including blueberries from our very own bushes!

Beginning at 7:00 pm, the whole process lasted until almost 11:00 pm.

Time to wrap up and go home!

What a wonderful evening!
