But when I last left off here I'd visited the Stand By Me locations and that evening I had a really fun show at the Lebanon Public Library. It's just a gorgeous library and the Library Director, Carol Dinges, was very gracious and lovely. Lots of people came, and I recognized folks who had been at the show at Paul Aziz's house the night before. I think it is safe to say a good time was had by all...especially me!
The next day is the day I have had marked in my date book as "BIG LONG DRIVE." I started out at 7:30am in Albany, OR (where my hotel was) and drove all the way to Beamont, CA...a 15 hour drive. With stops along the way I made it to Beaumont before 11:30, so my Garmin, Sidney, was right on the mark! Sidney is my Australian Garmin friend and my constant companion on the road. I just love to hear him say "Recalculating" over and over in his "put another shrimp on the barbie" accent!
The BIG LONG DRIVE was beautiful. Here are some photos:

|don't worry, I'm very careful when I do this. There are no other cars around. But isn't that cool?|
