The Book Party

The fa la la of the season . . . The infamous, long awaited, good time book party. Al Biernet's was a great place to have the party. There were lots of people there. My friend KM showed up which was great because she kept me company when there was a lull in the adulations. : )

The Boys spoke and I just said that I was glad that I got to be a part of the book. One of the elder book recipients had me sign his book. (Everyone all together "aaawwwwwww")

The Bruton Family. The woman second from the right is Bruton's widow. Too much work done. nuf said. Stephanie, bless her heart, is the admin assistant to one of the men I had the hardest times getting an interview with. She was always polite and kind on the phone, so it was a lot of fun to see her at the party. The author being entertained by a Hall of Fame recipient and members of the committee aka "The Boys."

If you look very closely, you can see the half empty Cosmo on the table that the author wisely put down so that there would be no photos of her drinking it up at the party (in case they made it into the papers and her students should see her tilting a few back.) That's a no go ghost rider.

Also, please note the thoughtful, almost pensive look on the author. You might think she is paying attention to the thought provoking words of DDH. Nope, she is thinking, "I wonder how much they'll pay me to do the next part of this. Hmm, I wonder if I could just get them to pay me in advance. . .yeah, that's the ticket, then I could get the new and improved closet in the master bedroom. That would be great. I wonder if we are going to have dinner here. I bet it would be really good."

They did, indeed, eat dinner at Al Biernet's, and indeed, it was super yummy.
