One thing I truly love about the Silver Spur is that the cell service is spotty in fact I can't get a signal at all unless I'm up by the main entrance on the road a good 1/4 mile from the main lodge. Its nice sometimes to shut out the world. I warned the ranch manager that I just may show up some day hiding from my real life. Seriously, though everyone should have a place where they can escape and completely relax. I hope you have somewhere like the Silver Spur in your world.
But if you don't, I hear rumors that The Wild Rose Press is having its annual retreat there next October. Maybe I'll see you there.

October in Upstate NY means a couple things to me; cooler nights, gorgeous colors, and apples. We are blessed to live surrounded by apple orchards and I have always spent this time of year making huge batches of applesauce and freezing it to enjoy all year. Last night was the first of the apple desserts - apple crisp with vanilla icecream - yum yum.
Tomorrow I'm off to the home in my heart - San Antonio, Texas. Spending a few days riding on our favorite ranch - the Silver Spur Guest Ranch in Bandera, Texas (shameless plug!) - before spending a couple days in San Antonio with friends and the SARA chapter of RWA.
I wish I could say I'm hard at work on another story but the writing bug seems to have disappeared. I'm hoping to find my muse again while I'm relaxing under the stars of Texas.
Have a great fall!
