Look what lucky Joy won at convention—a wine basket! Joy had ticket #18; I had #17. Bugger. But she will share with her BFF and driver-to-convention. She is a sweetie.
So the 8 of us had fun with sistas from mostly Georgia, totaling almost 200 attendees this year. Numbers are down in this economy. No surprise there. But we had fun, fun, fun!
Friday night was a pajama/movie party, with a hotdog dinner and popcorn galore as we watched Miss Congeniality. The movie was good, but the chairs, not so much. Joy and I made a hasty retreat just as soon as it ended…to our room that never cooled down enough. If it wasn’t cool enough for Karen and me, Joy and Jennie were SUFFERING! Well, almost. Those two do like an almost cold room. I know it had been 102 outside, but still. The A/C was not so good at this facility, anywhere.
And this Marriott did not offer free internet. Pox on them. I am not paying $10 for your internet, no sirree, so I won’t be staying there again, even with their comfortable mattresses. And they ran out of regular coffee for the in-room coffee makers. Hello? Didn’t purchasing see that there were THREE conventions scheduled at this lovely establishment over the weekend??? Sheesh.
Kudos to the BSP Macon convention committee. Y’all put on a great weekend for the sistas. More later.
Welcome home…to mail, laundry, and normal stuff. And making up my own bed. But this is also where my sweetie and Missy are, so home is good, y’all!
