Weekend with Friends by Dru Ann Love

by Dru Ann Love

Every year me and two of my friends plan a weekend getaway. We’ve been to Boston, Denver, Savannah, and most recently Memphis and Tennessee. Whatever is our destination, I always look to see if I have any author friends in the area and plan a lunch. I like to introduce them to the authors and the books they write. In most cases, they do tend to make a purchase or two.

This past weekend, we did the touristy things, Graceland, the National Civil Rights Museum, and the Peabody Hotel to see the ducks march to the fountain in Memphis and Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Johnny Cash Museum, and the Musicians Hall of fame. But the most entertaining activity was meeting the authors and one of them was Lois Winston. We picked the Margaritaville restaurant for lunch, but who knew they had live music that just never stopped. It was hard hearing conversations if you weren’t nearby. It was great seeing Lois and my other friends.

When you travel, do you seek out friends to visit?


  1. Dru, what a wonderful blog! I love your photos and enjoyed knowing that the Peabody still has the ducks march around the fountain!! I saw that years ago and thought it was so funny!
    If you come to Houston, let us know. There are three Stiletto Gang members in the area who'd love to meet up with you!!

  2. Sounds like a fun outing, Dru. I'm in Houston, too, and I join Kathryn in wanting to see you whenever you decide to come.

  3. Great photos, Dru! I'm in Randleman, NC––home of NASCAR champ Richard Petty. He has a working garage and a museum, too. And when those thirty-minutes are finished we can have lunch :)

  4. What a great trip! I've always heard about the hotel with the ducks. And Graceland is on my bucket list! So glad you had fun.

  5. How fun, Dru! I'm the third Houstonian, and, wow! It would be such fun to get together with you!
