Book Night


Last night Rich and I went into the city for an author lecture and book signing. Vince Flynn has a new book out. He writes Political Thrillers. I love this author and have read all 9 of his books.
It was so so good. Flynn was an entertaining speaker who had great stories with amazing people. Both President Clinton and President Bush have read his books and they want to know how his stories are so accurate.

I also had Flynn sign my favorite, Transfer of Power. He looked at my copy and said, "Do you have a Costco membership?"

"Yes."

"Well, they sell reprinted versions of my older books for $11. You can get a new copy." Nice.

Then Rich and I got to go to Houston's for dinner. AH. So good. I tried to stir up Beef by texting him while we were waiting for a table but he ignored me. Then I got ready to send Aaron a text but looked at clock and thought with the time difference he wouldn't fully appreciate my smart ass text.

It was such a great evening. It is what Rich and I both needed. Thanks to all those who made this evening possible: John and AJ for watching the kids, Mom and Dad for dinner, and Vince Flynn for writing a new book.
