Touring with Terry: Austin
Austin! What a great city. How many airports do you know that have Salt Lick AND Dickies Barbeque? M-m-m. We didn’t get to stop on our way IN, but believe me we had lunch there before flying out.
Terrific two-bedroom suite at the Omni, downtown. Nice for our last stop before home. We had an escort for this visit which is very nice. Never realized how much like having one until we didn’t any more.
Our friend, Dick Tanner, from Richardson, drove down (4 hours – he’s as crazy as Terry’s fans) for dinner which we enjoyed at LaCondessa right before the signing. Book People is a terrific store with a super selection of books, fun sidelines, and the BEST card section ever. They do a lot of major signings so everything was run smoothly, including attaching one of the staff as photographer, since everyone wants a photo with T. these days (cellphones, you know). Big crowd, too. A huge thank you to everyone involved.
