Scenic views

This is the inspiring scenic view from our window at the Hilton Gardens Inn in Conway, Ark. If there are gardens here, I haven’t found them.
We’re attending the annual meeting of the Arkansas Associated Press Managing Editors Association.
We had dinner last night at a splendid restaurant in the old downtown area called Mike’s Place. I had the salmon with citrus dijon sauce and am happy to say it’s the best salmon I’ve had since we moved to Arkansas four years ago.
The other pleasant surprise at dinner was the discovery that the woman seated to my right used to be a gardener for longtime motorcycle friend Ted Simon at his home in Covelo, Calif. Becky Harris works at the Log Cabin Democrat, the Conway newspaper, now. What are the odds of making that kind of connection?
