I’ve just arrived in Waynesboro after driving up
from St. Petersburg, and I’m so looking forward to seeing all
my friends at the Barn
Show this weekend.
My “Streetwalker” friends in St. Petersburg gave me a wonderful
sendoff Saturday morning with breakfast, followed by a walk on the beach.
They are a great group of women whom I’ve been walking with for
Pat (back row, center) with her "Streetwalker" friends
who came out to send her off.
My friends Mike and Jan Donahue helped me pack and load
the van for the drive up to Virginia. Mike and Jan take care of my house
in St. Petersburg for me while I’m away. I’m very lucky
to have them looking out for things for me.
Jan and Mike Donohue help Pat with the packing and loading of boxes
to go with Pat to Virginia.
After I arrived at the Museum
Tuesday, I had a most pleasant surprise. Congressman Bob Goodlatte,
who represents Virginia’s Sixth District in the U.S. House of
Representatives, and members of his staff were in the area and dropped
in for a visit at the Museum. I was delighted to be on hand and have
a chance to spend some time with them and very honored when Congressman
Goodlatte purchased one of my autobiographies to give to one of his
colleagues in the House.

is Jennifer S. Faulkner, Roanoke District Scheduler, then Sheila Jennings,
Staunton District Scheduler, and next to Pat is Katrin S. Rexrode, Comminications
Director and Legislative Assistant.
While I was preparing to return to Virginia, my daughters
Mary and Ginny were visiting their sister Becky in Italy. They each
took along some friends and became a touring force that conquered Rome
and ate their way through a good portion of the country. The pictures
they sent me looked like they were having so much fun that I have to
share a couple with you.

Next week I’ll have pictures from the Barn Show
to share with you, too. Until then, take care.
