This was taken at the San Diego Mystery Club meeting in November. I’m happy to say I’ve lost a full dress size since then, but quite pleased with how cleverly (and kindly) the photographer (thank you, Bill!) hid my butt with a copy of the book cover. I’m gonna have him photoshop all future unflattering photos! This picture was taken five minutes after arriving at the hotel restaurant where SDMC holds their monthly meetings. We were fresh off the plane, which was delayed over an hour, and our Avis rental car. I drove in record time from Charles Limburgh Airport to Hotel Circle South, arriving at the meeting minutes before dinner was served. The lovely hostess took one look at my frazzled expression and handed me a glass of wine, which you see in my hand.
