More Pictures From National

Thought I'd share a few more pictures from RWA National in Washington DC.

Aunty and some of her favorite people...

First, yer olde Aunty and the lovely and talented PJ at the Sourcebooks book signing.

Next, Aunty and buddy Bosun TerriO got all dolled up for the Rita/Golden Heart Awards ceremony. No, neither of us were nominated (THIS year), but we had fun anyway.

And speaking of the Awards ceremony... here's someone who WAS nominated (and for the second year in a row)! The elegant and talented Louisa Cornell, who got a hug from Aunty.

But WHERE, you may ask, is Aunty's infamous riding crop? Well of course Aunty would never go to RWA National without the crop! And it was present at the Literacy Signing, as the beautiful and vivacious Bandita Buddy Gannon C. quickly saw for herself.

Well, I think that's enough for now. There are plenty more pictures on FaceBook and elsewhere, but as you can tell from these four, Aunty had a WONDERFUL time. Hope I can have more fun next year in Nashville and that I can meet even more of you!

I went to visit my local chapter today - my first visit, invited by a friend. What a wonderful group of people!

Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

Fantastic, Sheila!

RWA has some of the friendliest and most supportive people anywhere! So glad you found a few.

There we are! That's one of the few pictures from Nationals in which I don't look horrible. LOL! I swear I'm the least photogenic person on the planet.

Isn't AC's necklace pretty? That was a great color on you.

I'm so excited about Nashville. I lived there once upon a time and I can't wait to finally have conference in a city I know something about. LOL!

Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

No m'dear Terrio, *I* am the least photogenic person in the known UNIVERSE! But my necklace was gorgeous and was handmade by my roomie and CP, Cathy D.

WOO! HOO! Can't wait for Nashville!


PJ said...

Well I think both Terri and AC looked wonderful and I was thrilled to finally meet both of you in person. Looking forward to a rockin' good time in Nashville!

terrio said...

Thank you, PJ. And I still can't believe we finally met in person. It was about time, huh? LOL!

So looking forward to Nashville!

Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

I was tickled PINK to meet you and all the other BBs in person! Your candy is OUT OF THIS WORLD!! Thank you so much for the gift bag of it!

And YES, TerriO, we will have QUITE a good time next year in Nashville!
