Heather on Lynn....

Lynn made it safely to San Fran. She called me yesterday when we'd sat down to dinner and in between chewing I listened to the excitement bubbling from her voice as she told me about speaking and meeting Maureen Child and Susan Mallery. And of course, she squeeled that she wished I was there.

Honestly, for the first time, I wished I was there as well.

She's having a blast with Lex and Kelly--like we expected anything different--they have their coffee pot now and aside from Lex and Kelly's $50 rubber eggs, toast and hashbrown breakfast, I think it's safe to say that they're having a ton of fun and yes, I'm really wishing I was there too!

I swore I would send photos for the blog, that I WOULD phone in stuff, etc, and I have been busier than I thougtht I'd be.

While I've been here, it seems the penis enlargement folks, the make-money-the-fast-way folks, and the "you aren't here so we're spamming your ass" folks have kept my IN box company.

But I've learned a lot, smoked more than I should have, have eaten great San Francisco foods, and have met authors nuttier than I am.

The blackmail photos will commence next week.

MISS YOU, TOO!!!!!!!!!!

Feel Goods

Go about halfway down this page, or just click on THIS link to get right to it, and watch the decades old video about Christian the lion, raised by two Brits back in the sixties. (But the accompanying story/article is on the first link.) If this doesn’t give you a warm fuzzy aaaah moment, then check your pulse – you may be dead from the neck down.


My friend Ken's new logo - he's a graphic artist. :)




My pets have been snuggle bunnies lately. I think that they know Mama is gonna be gone...again...soon.

(sorry so dark)






I REALLY wish this one wasn't so dark. It's a shot (with my camera phone of course) of friend Carol and "Tammy Wynnette" (character in a gay friendly play, and the man playing Tammy was a HOOT).


























I'm doing laundry and packing (and unpacking and repacking - lol) for the upcoming trip to San Francisco. Romance Writers of America holds its national conference in a big city every year, and I missed the one last year because I wanted to attend the Romantic Times conference (which was a blast) in Houston. [Kathryn Falk and I spoke on the phone a couple of weeks ago, and she said that there *might* be one in the Midwest in 2011 that would only be about a fifteen minute drive for me. That would be kewl. *perk*]

ANYWAY. I can't seem to keep from overpacking. I've learned how to roll garments so that they don't take up as much room, but I have yet to find a way to make the suckers lose weight.


My family has been supportive - concerned, because of medical issues, but very supportive. The Kids know how much this trip means to me, to see Lex (we only see one another once a year, at conferences) and Kelly (I haven't seen Lex's daughter since the Atlanta RWA in 2006). So my son has donated money to the "have a good time" fund, and today daughter-in-law (who is no longer daughter-in-law-2-be as of last month) took me to get the requisite pedicure and manicure. *big sigh* Gad. I'm so girly-girl now.


So my manicurist and her husband are fighting, and I got some of the juiciest gossip sitting there. Is it wrong to want to write about other people's angst? And last time, there were two old ladies fighting over a bottle of nail polish, and they got into a bitch fuss over who had varicose veins and who didn't. It was all I could do, seeing them sitting with cotton between their toes and shaking fingers at one another, to keep from laughing. One woman ran her fingertips down her body and hollered that she'd had four children and had never, ever had a varicose vein and that the other woman was just jealous because she hadn't been laid since God was a corporal (while the lady speaking was obviously getting 'some').

The trip cost me more than 3 days and nights of food, but what the hell, right? I found fodder for future material.

I've almost cleaned out the garage so that the kids can use their wedding presents and so that I'll have room for the books in my room that will soon be replaced with books from THIS conference.

It's been an interesting month. Earlier in the month I stayed in a friend's teenage son's room. First time I've slept beneath a Led Zepplin poster or been surrounded by so many car tags.

I've also shopped for cars--not in stores or on lots but in parking lots while waiting for someone. I can't make up my mind if I'd appear European with a scooter or if I'd just look like somebody's mother who isn't allowed to drive the family car any more - lol.

The black and red vehicles just stood out for me. Dunno why.

Okay, enough rambling. Just thought I'd say HELLO to whoever is reading and to tell you that Kate and Heather Rae will be holding down the fort for me while I'm gone. Be nice to them, please.

And all of you take care, have a marvelous weekend and upcoming week. I'll try to have news from the conference to give Kate and Heather to post here.
hugs,
Sunny Lyn

(It's been so long since I've embedded a link I can't remember the html to do it anymore. Damned point-n-click programs...!)

Have fun at conference. This one just didn't work out for me -- I'm traveling to British Columbia instead -- but I'd like to go again soon.

Oh how terrific!!!
That sounds wonderful - have a great time! And scooters look like so much fun to ride. I think I'd like one too!

 
At 2:39 AM, Blogger Lyn Cash said...

aaw - thanks, Kris and Sam!!!!!!

I leave in about 4 and 1/2 hours and am still doing laundry, haven't slept, etc - lol. But I've watered the plants, fixed a pot roast for The Kids, played with the dogs, and took a crash course from #1 Son in how to operate the new camera. *snort* We'll see how well the lessons take.

Ya'll enjoy your week. :) Thanks for stopping by. I'll return the favor SOON.

All Is Well

Or as good as it gets for a while. Thanks for the well-wishes. I'll be back with a decent post as soon as I can. Still have more doctors' visits this week, but surgeries are over.

I shall leave you with this link - try not to bust a stitch if you're in my condition - lol.

This 'n That




It's all good.



TEB is sponsoring a contest. July 1st marks TEB’s first year in business, and they’d like to celebrate with you. Here’s a note from them:

Each day we will post a clue for you. Collect the clues each day and follow what it leads to. When you have the answer email us at competitions@total-e-bound.com with "blog contest" in the header. Winners will be picked on 31st July and posted up on the blog, and the TEB competitions page.

Prizes: THREE PEOPLE WILL WIN ALL 3 OF THE LUST BITES ANTHOLOGIES - 18 STORIES IN TOTAL!! (psst - Lex & I are in 2 of those anthologies!)

Here is the link to their blogspot…Total ebound Blogspot – take a peek and play – it’ll be fun!




Yes, the rumors are true – I’ll be out of pocket a few days. Nothing major, just some medical tests, etc. Until then, you may see Kate or Heather popping in to say hello. Depends upon whether or not they come OVER here to READ and see that their friend is GONE for a few days – lol. Things have moved so quickly that I haven’t had time to write or call either of them this week.

Heather sent me this little visual reminder last week – she knows what’s going on medically with me and has been a truly good friend in bolstering my spirits.



Oooh – speaking of Kate, though…she and I co-authored a series with Kris Starr, three novellas that are being combined into a print edition sometime this summer or fall, and the anthology is Shrink Wrap. I’ll tell you right now that their stories are probably better than mine, simply because they have over-sexed ghosts and invisible people in theirs, and all I have is a crystal with sexual persuasions, but the whole effort makes a pretty good read, so I hope you’ll pick it up and give us a chance.




I had so much fun writing with those two that Kate and I collaborated with yet another friend, Alexis Fleming, on an anthology called Who’s Your Daddy that is garnering quite a bit of interest. These are the “sperm donor” stories. To be honest, my MOTHER gave us the idea for them when she read a newspaper article about such a man. Nooo, she hasn’t read them – my mother doesn’t read erotic romance, but she has asked for a copy of this book, which is now in print. I don’t have my author copies yet, but…soon.




Okay, that's it for this post.

Have a great week while I’m away. BE NICE to one another – lol.

Hugs,
Sunny Lyn

thanks, sweetie - and you have a great week!!!

Yeah, what she said.

I'd post at your blog but I'm not keeping up my own house. It's all funkadelic here. Nothing weird, just a lot of boy stuff.

 
At 11:43 PM, Anonymous Heather Rae said...

And then there's me who is also in a funkadelic state as well...and she forgot her password....*sighs*

I miss you and we have lots and lots to catch up on so hurry the hell up and get better already. I miss you!

 
At 2:19 PM, Blogger Lyn Cash said...

aah - excuses, excuses - lol

You two don't get off that easily - I can always pick up the phone and call you. *grin*


All is still well - making the trek to the hospital later today. Should be home by weekend if all goes well, and I think it will.
