Just When You Think....

PICTURE with me: River Jordan, author of Saints in Limbo -- beautiful book. Beautiful author; Kathy Louise Patrick, the Pulpwood Queen in her Beauty and the Book combo beauty shop/bookstore. 

Just when you think it is all working out so perfectly.....I mean here I was in a town so quaint and near perfect that I thought it might be a movie set. I had a great night meeting all the Pulpwood Queen book club members from ALL over Louisiana and Texas, and then slept in this perfect little BB. 
THEN, bam! 
Not so perfect.
I awoke at 345Am to leave the BB by 410AM so I could get to Shreveport for my 625AM flight. I tiptoe out of the BB, stumble to my rental car in the dark to discover that someone has stolen my portable GPS in my rental car.
I want to cry, but I don't. Really, it's 410 in the morning and I have no idea where I am or how to get where I'm going. Who do you wake up? Who do you call? What do you do?
I remember this: my iPhone. I love my iPhone now more than I ever did (and that is saying a lot) as it took me through backwoods Texas roads at 415Am to the Shreveport airport where I sit and wait on.....a delayed flight.
Oh, the glamour of book tour.
