Carol (carollee) has put together a fantastic Story Scrapbook Challenge for this month. My brush with a celebrity (not once, but twice) was so much fun. DD has provided fun freebies, so join us and tell us your story!

Journaling reads:
In March 2011 I traveled to Great Falls with Beth to a Pioneer Woman Book signing. It was just about 1 month before my back surgery (although I didn’t know it at the time) and the pain was getting to be unbearable, but I sure didn’t want to miss this opportunity. The book signing was at the Heritage Inn, in conjunction with the Western Masters Art Show. The furniture was removed from the guest rooms and artists set up their art work inside the rooms. We wandered through about 150 rooms looking to our hearts delight at Western Art that included oils, watercolors, bronzes and multimedia. We reconnected with an old friend, Davis Graham, and actually purchased an oil painting for Tom's birthday from him. In the evening Ree Drummond was the featured speaker and spoke about her life on the prairies of Oklahoma. We waited in line for the book signing and I cherish the book that she signed.

In 2013 while returning from Clara sitting in Kansas, I saw Ree and her daughter Paige Drummond at the Denver airport and although I was too timid to ask for another photo with her, I did say Hi and tell her how much I enjoy her books and TV show. She was very kind and probably would have posed for another photo!!

**Actually..... the really funny thing is that my DIL who is an Ag Journalist went to Oklahoma in 2002 or so to interview and write an article about Ladd (Marlboro Man), Ree's husband. This is just before Ree started her blog.....and well, the rest is history!!! **
