Pulpwood Queens Book Clubs' Girlfriend Weekend

The tiaras were out for the Pulpwood Queen Girlfriend Weekend gathering in historic Jefferson, TX this weekend, the last steamboat port on the Red River.

It kinda made me wish I was a chick lit writer, since testosterone was overwhelmed by estrogen, and I don't look good in leopard print, but other than that, it was big fun.

There were lotsa hugs and big welcomes from Kathy Patrick the proprietress of Beauty and the Book, Jefferson's only beauty shop/book store (

Author Joe O'Connell, the other guy on the guy's panel and a cool Austin cat from the gitgo, displays his book Evacuation Plan: A Novel from the Hospice.

My old Joe "King" buddy from New York, Tim Raglin, now living in Independence, Kansas on the family homestead, showed up bringing along his array of wonderfully illustrated children's books, as well as the design for this year's Girlfriend Weekend t-shirt.

Hi Joe,

It was great meeting you and hearing about your passion for writing and Texas' history at the Pulpwood Queens Weekend. Too bad there wasn't more testosterone. Ah, well. Maybe next year.

Much success,
