A night on the town

My friend, Carol, and I went to hear Anne Lamott speak last Saturday in Pleasanton. I have loved her books; both fiction and non-fiction and cannot wait to read her latest. It was a bit surreal to see her in such a small venue, waiting just a few minutes in the book signing line beforehand, and best of all, sitting front row, center seats. The last time I had seats that good for anything was twenty-five years ago at Hello Dolly where we were so close I could see Carol Channing's face taped up on the sides.
