Go Now For Later

If Betsy and I had followed that advice from both of our mothers we might have been able to be in the same room with author Neil Gaiman yesterday, rather than sitting in the overflow room. See Neil's blog also. We left the Unity Church about 12:20 PM by the time we reached the library we both needed the facilities. But the library was closed. And the doors to the auditorium section was not open yet, and there was a huge line. We had known that the doors were to open at 1:00 PM but we couldn't stand and wait. My legs won't take much standing anyway. So off to McDonald's nearby for use of facilities and to get a bite of lunch. Then back to the library, where we arrived about 1:25 or so, only to find we were stuck in the overflow room and had to be satisfied to view everything on a large screen TV. As he states in his blog Neil did come in and say hello to us. And I agree that the library did not seem to expect so many people. We did not stay for the book signing, as again the line was huge. Still according to his blog some folks were turned away, so I don't feel so bad.

Compouter is acting wonky so I may be offline a bit. We'll see.
