Karl Rove is coming to Peachtree City!

I just bought Karl Rove's new book, Courage and Consequences, tonight!  I got home from the store and within half an hour had a phone call telling me he's going to be here in Georgia May 15th & 16th. So cool... I think he is brilliant, witty, and he's at the very tip top of my list of people I'd love to have dinner with someday. I could wax eloquent about how I admire him but I won't because I know 99.9% of my readers would agree!

Unfortunately for me, I have an art show that weekend and will be sitting at a booth selling my pottery right down the street while he is signing books. I am bummed that I'll miss him, but still excited he'll be here... yep that's called bi-polarly emotions. I'll be ten minutes away and won't get to see him. I'll be at the art show both days he's here in the Atlanta area.

Mr. Rove, if you happen to read this, stop by my booth at the Old Courthouse Art Show in Fayetteville (really, ten minutes, straight down the road from Books-A-Million in Peachtree City) and I'll let you have any piece of my pottery you'd like, even my award winners... OK, OK, you can have two pieces ( if you'd like to look before you decide whether it's worth coming)!!!  I'm gonna be famous one of these days and they'll be priceless family heirlooms you'll pass on to your favorite family member way, way in the future...

Ya'll know if Karl Rove showed up at my booth (#36, Fayette Fine Art Show, right on Hwy 54 East at the old Courthouse... oldest courthouse in Georgia... county seat of the biggest and most enthusiastic bunch of Republicans in the state...) I'd probably be so shocked I'd be speechless (and that'd be something most of my friends would love to see ;-)

I'm right on the street... you could pull up, come grab your pottery... have someone pick me up off the ground... take a photo of me with my mouth hanging open... sign my book if I could remember my name... call the medics to render CPR if I don't blink for more than a minute... then just jump back in your car and head straight down the road to the airport. It's only 20 minutes to the airport, too... straight shot from booth #36, Fayette Fine Art Show...

I am going to work hard to try and twist someone's arm to sit at my booth for a while so I can run down to the bookstore Sunday and get him to sign my book. It's a long shot 'cause there just aren't many who'd sit in a booth selling something they know nothing about... and who'd I'd trust with my money ...
