She's Letting Me Premier the Picture

My fantasy author, Sandy Lender, had this earth-shattering event two weekends ago when she went to Orlando. She met one of her muses, the one she claims inspired her creation of me (which boggles the mind if you think on it too long, so don't think on it for too long) and then blogged about it over at Today the Dragon Wins. Because this is the blog where we're supposed to talk about the writer's life, I complained. (Of course. I wouldn't really be doing my job if I didn't give her a little grief about breaking protocol, now would I?)

So she's letting me showcase the picture of her with Duran Duran.

Enjoy the "zaniness" of it all. She's just insane, as far as I can tell. The young lady with blonde hair standing between Roger Taylor and Simon LeBon is Jennine. Sandy is standing almost on top of John Taylor but between him and Nick Rhodes. She's the one who looks deliriously giddy. I believe she was. She says she's going to crop the photo and make it her Christmas card this year. (And I don't think she's joking. I can usually tell now when she's teasing me, but I think she's serious about this...)

All my best to you,

Yes, Laura, it irks me as well, but for different reasons, I believe.

I'm trying to keep her glued to the computer, but she just gets so distracted.

All my best to you and your son as he heads off to boot camp!

Thanks, Nigel!

It's too bad I couldn't meet you and Sandy for lunch or something when I was in Florida, but don't fear, we will be coming next year for sure. Who knows? Maybe Sandy would like to visit in Minnesota in the summer and we could go to Walnut Grove to see where Laura Ingalls Wilder lived and to Grand Rapids, where Judy Garland lived. Or maybe she would enjoy coming to Duluth and visit the shores of the Great Gitchegoomee, aka. Lake Superior?

You are both welcome on my doorstep anytime.

Laura ;)
