After my less than stellar event in Redmond, it was great to arrive in Portland. We stayed with Heather and Rodney. Technically Heather is my second cousin, but I think of her as my bonus niece. Ivy and their dog Bella horsed around constantly and Ivy reverted to goofy puppydom. Heather was a big help with book sales at one of my events too. What a treat to have her with me there!
