Julie blows into town, packing books and Bacon

Last night, Julie was in town, so I went to listen to her lecture (and see The Bacon, of course).

JZ signing books
The crowd was diverse...some young, facially-pierced University students, some bloggers and a large amount of older birder/nature-oriented types.
The talk was good, as it always is with Julie.
Afterward, Nina and I and a few women whose names I didn't catch, went for an official Audience with Chet Baker.
When I know Chet is going to accompany Julie on her trips, I come fully armed with dog treats and a toy.

It took Chet maybe 5 minutes to kill it and dismember it.

Bacon and the toy

Poor toy. We lined up some of the pieces and marveled at their resemblance to rib bones...
Took less than 5 minutes

Sounds like a fun evening.

Chet got all those women to come up to his hotel room? Did you have to bring him liquor?

LOL at the Chet picture!! And double LOL over Lynne's comment!

Sorry I missed the fun. Tell Chet I know he is cheating on me, and I don't like it.

That Baker--he is such a publicity hog.
Seriously, nice to read your account, having also read Julie's. And to see your photo of her--she sure looks glamorous for her book signing.

That Chet is one lucky dog!

It was so great to see you, Susan, and thanks as always for your great generosity. The Bacon has a couple of pieces of his yellow sun toy left. And I love my necklace! Thanks for coming!

Wow, after reading Julie's post and then your account of this even, it's like having two-two-TWO Chets in one! A double-dipped Chet-fix. Very nice! (And I agree, Julie looks very glamorous in her book-signing, speech-making, Chet-distributing duds.)
