Today was our monthly Mystery Readers meeting in Georgetown, and we had a special panel of guest authors and an artist who discussed the craft of writing/illustrating mysteries. It was a lot of fun. I made a new friend. 🙂

Before the meeting, I walked outside and noticed that one of my impatiens just crashed overnight…

Kathleen said it was lack of water, so I drowned it. 🙂 Not really, but I did give it a good soaking. When I got home, I think it had perked up quite a bit. I’ll check again in the morning.

But I digress. I went up a bit early and rode down to the meeting with my parents. Mother has decided she really likes the Kindle. Unfortunately, it is MY Kindle, and I am beginning to be fearful of ever getting it back…lol.

The Georgetown Library is a lovely facility. Two floors, with a nice little cafe on the first floor and a Friends of the Library second-hand bookstore on the second. Great meeting rooms too.

Socializing before the start of the panel. Good turnout. Several guests in addition to our normal membership.


Dave poses a problem.                                          Chatting after the meeting.

It was a lot of fun. And I may have to start attending the meetings of the Sherlock Holmes Society of Austin. Trish McCracken is an avid member, and one of her paintings was used as an illustration in The Sherlock Holmes Companion: An Elementary Guide. I just ordered a copy. 🙂

After the meeting, I went back to Mom and Dad’s to get my car…since my truck is still in pieces in my garage…

Took this on the way home. Georgetown has a real deer infestation.

But they are pretty…


That about wraps it up for today. Tomorrow we are going to see Dark Shadows. Looking forward to it!

  1. Well said. I think that a good time was had by all, in spite of extraneous distractions from other events. I hope that everyone enjoyed the conversations at least half as much as I.

    Pretty? Well I guess one could call the tallrats pretty, but I’d prefer to be able to think of them as stew or potroast.
