Kathy, I've fallen out of contact with Jessica, too. She had a baby about 10 or so years ago, but that's all I know. My next trip is to California (you've heard of it, yes?), because the SATW Board of Directors -- of which I'm now a member, for better or for worse -- is having its annual powwow in San Diego. I assume you're traveling less these days because of your editorial duties, right?
Great to hear from you, Kathy, and I'm glad skies are sunny out there on the Left Coast. I'm still in touch with Kathleen Beckett (she's in the New York Travel Writers Association), but I haven't bumped into anyone else from that trip. Turkey was indeed glorious. I'd been there before, I've gone there since, and knock wood, I'll get there again. Have you been back? I hope things are going well with California Homes. The economy may be tanking, but people will always need homes, and they'll always want those places to look good.
