It's been a week since Bouchercon, and presumably everyone has downed all the Advil they needed, caught up on sleep, and is back to their daily routine. The Outfit had a blast (at least this member did) and much of it was because of Bowling Day. We did bowl, and we had really cools shirts, thanks to Kevin, who procured them at some bowling supply company.
We bowled as a team... with Outfiteer Emeritus Sara Paretsky and Honorary Outfit Member Enid Perle to cheer us on. Unfortunately, what we amassed in enthusiasm didn't quite transfer to our scores, and our form... ahem, Laura....probably wouldn't make it past the Professional Bowling Association (or whatever they call themselves.)
Still, we will remember this event fondly. And now, thanks to Michael Dymmoch and her spot-on photography, so will you!
On a personal note, I want to say that I have been nominated for awards at Bouchercon three times, but I have never won until this year. And what trophy did I bring home? The Worst Bowler at Bouchercon. I am very proud, and the trophy sits in the place of honor in my office.
St. Louis was terrific. And that's a wrap.
