Believe It or Not

Lori waited 6 hours in line yesterday to get Pioneer Woman to sign a cookbook.  I can't believe she had the incredible patients to stand there that long.  She did say she met some amazing new friends.  One of the families near her drove in from Iowa.  The 1st person in line got there at 7:30am and the signing started at 1:00pm.  She said there were people with babies and children of all ages.  The older woman in front of her hadn't eaten in 12 hours.  Ree sure has some crazy, dedicated fans.

Marlboro Man and the two boys were there as well Ree, who Lori said was so sweet to everyone.  There were an estimated 700 people there and everyone had multiple books that needed signing.   After signing so many books, I would imagine her hand would just fall off.  (And my hand gets tired after writing a note these days.)

Lori took a bunch of pictures, so I'll post them as soon as we figure out a way to transfer them.

And Lori, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I will cherish this book always for it represents a lot of love.

  1. What a sweet friend you have! Hope to see the photos soon. I love PW. But I don't think she has plans for a European Book Tour (even though the Griswolds came here, if I remember correctly!)

  3. Was Marlboro Man wearing a cowboy hat? I look forward to the photos.

    Will think of you on Thursday while the GB vs Detroit is on. Enjoy your Thanksgiving.

  5. Hello Lindalou,
    We found our Settlers of Cataan ON-line. But beware of this game, you will be hooked. It does take some learning, but it is worth it.
