I will be at Corydon, Indiana tomorrow, signing copies of my Amish cookbook from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. I will also have my homemade Amish jams and breads for sale. I hope to get to meet a lot of my Blogger friends from that area, as well as the Greater Louisville Metro Area. It was a slow, but nice day in Somerset, Kentucky today. The staff at Somerset Tractor Supply Store were very nice and helpful. I met a lot of nice readers, too. I swung by The Pink Bee, also in Somerset and dropped off an order of cookbooks. I have a Christmas signing there for December 15 from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
I had fun at Mackinaw Island and in Orlando. I got pulled over in Georgia, but didn't get a ticket. There is a $507.00 fine if you don't get over into the left lane when a cop has someone pulled over, regardless if there is another exit lane next to them. I know now! The grandbaby is so plump and enjoying visiting with mom. I am baking today for my visits to Tractor Supply this week. If you are in Somerset, Kentucky of Corydon, Indiana, come on out and get your cookbook signed!
I had contacted Westgate awhile back, wanting to maybe do a travel segment on them, as lots of friends were talking about timeshares, and several of my friends own them. Well, as I stopped at a Welcome Center, I seen large framed pictures of them. I was so excited that I asked the lady if I could visit one of the properties. She signed me up for the tour. I couldn't wait to go to tour the property. The lady I met with was just awesome, having a very "can-do attitude" and warm, personable personality.
However, the manager above her was so sales-pushy, I finally had to tell him that I had to be at a store to sell my jams, salsas and sign my cookbooks and was late, as the presentation was supposed to take 90 minutes and it didn't- it took much longer. He said that she had not done a good job at selling to me and that all of my customers at the store entrance would say "No, No! He was talking about when I asked them if they wanted to buy my books or foods. I have never been treated this bad by a sales person; it made me cry. What is sad is that I NEVER buy the same day on purchases over $2,000- its a rule of my mine that I learned from The Dave Ramsey program, and I am sticking to it. And it is really sad because I would have bought from them, as the "Get Aways" program would save me a lot of money. I called Westgate to hear what they have to say about my review.
I have some free time tomorrow morning, so I will be driving across the longest bridge in the Western Hemisphere- The Mackinac Bridge tomorrow to get there. The Bridge is 5 miles long! I can't wait to drive across it! I will have photos to upload when I return from the Orlando show. I got the chance to meet some very nice residents of Alpena and Harrisville Michigan today. They really enjoyed my homemade breads and jams and salsas. I should have the Christmas order guide up on the side by November 15th.
