The best motel in the greater Sealy area
I had a good signing at Murder By The Book in Houston last night. David and the gang are always gracious and friendly. (If you want a signed copy of Holy Moly, just give them a call at 888-4AGATHA, or visit their website right here. They'll mail it to you.)
Afterward, I intended to drive home, but I was beat and decided to get a motel. When I'm traveling alone, I'm not picky. Just about anyplace is fine, as long as there isn't gunplay in the parking lot. But I do prefer to stay at motels in small towns, where it's quieter. So I drove to Sealy, about 30 miles west of Houston and found the Ranch Motel. The owner gave me a friendly grimace, took my forty bucks, and I was all set for the night.
The nice thing was, they left a little snack for me in the mini-fridge. A quarter of a watermelon. Who cares that it looks about a month old and already had a few bites out of it, it was tasty!
