Blues ~ a photo op

This was a big weekend for Bill and his mom 'Mrs. Mac'.
Fannie Flagg was in town for her book signing for "I Still Dream About You"... I was visiting my girlfriend Gail (of Gail's Great Escapes fame )... so left him with some strict instructions to TAKE the CAMERA.
I should have left stricter instructions... like TAKE PICTURES
We were lucky enough to get one photo for the blog. (or else I would have been really blue)
They did have a fabulous time and Mom was tickled pink to get to spend time talking with Fannie. She has ment so much to this family. . . and we love her dearly. Now, y'all need to rush out and buy her new book. It is another example of her southern storytelling, woven into a tale about her favorite city of Birmingham Alabama. It will make a great Christmas present!
Don't forget to check in at Smiling Sally for more blues.
y'all enjoy~

I adore Fanni Flagg! I remember her Fried Green Tomatoes. What a great novel. I'll bet this one is a winner too!

Happy Blue Monday, Sandi.

I am avid reader. I do not recall reading this one. I go the the library and get most of mine. I was spending too much money when buying.

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
