Girls Write Out

Since Colleen and Diann were in Fort Wayne this morning, I got to tag along on this zany tour the two of them are on. Now that I've been in on the action, let's set a few things straight from an outsider, unbiased point of view.

First off, all that talk about dumping blackwater and hookups? Ha. Can you say Marriott? Diann and Colleen can, and they can also say, "non-smoking room, please". Never mind that Thomas Nelson set them up in this deluxe apartment on wheels. I don't even think they've looked in the bathroom.

And Colleen's "little timid woman behind the wheel" thing? It's all an act. She whips that baby around those corners so fast I could feel the G-forces tugging on my skin. She did warn us every time she turned so we didn't go flying across the RV, so I guess she does love us.

Then there was the chocolate. Debrand Fine Chocolate was on the scheduled tour this morning. Uh, what's that got to do with books? Well, nothing, but Colleen can't come within 10 miles of Fort Wayne without stopping there. The owners were so nice, and they passed around samples and let us take home a free box of anything we wanted. Debrand is the best chocolate in the world (I'm pretty sure it'll be in heaven) . Next, we went to the Anchor Room (a Parable store) where the fabulous staff treated us to lattes.

Yeah, they're really roughing it. A fancy RV, hotel rooms, chocolate, lattes. Sign me up. But can we put Diann behind the wheel next time?

Tell it like it is, Denise! LOL. I didn't figure they were roughing it too much. I have to confess it took me a while to get what the "black water" was. I guess I'm too much of a city girl. =)

Debrand's...yum! Maple Creams. Chocolate covered strawberries. Mmmm.

Wow--this is so my kind of camping! Bring on the turn-down service, the chocolate on the pillow, the hot tub...
