Thanksgiving day was absolutely beautiful here in Southeast Missouri, so I felt compelled to get Cami out of the garage and take her for a spin. Cami, for those who haven't read my Rhetta McCarter mysteries, KILLERWATT and KILLERFIND, is a 1979 Camaro Rally Sport. My protagonist borrows her for her adventures.
Cami performed beautifully as I cruised up and down the two lane roads that serve our rural county. I waved to lots of folks, because Cami turns a lot of heads.
I reluctantly put her back in her garage at sundown, and headed for the house, my two cats and my sweet little Yorkie. My husband, Bill, also sweet, was spending the same time with his sisters and all their children in South Carolina.
The house was mine alone and I reveled in it.
Monday it's back to work in the real world.
But my time off was terrific.
