friends


The sun had broken through puffy, white clouds this morning as I entered my SUV and headed down route 68 for Lexington, KY. I passed along winding, back roads in Paris so I could see horses grazing in open fields. It wouldn't be long before I would meet my blogging friend Caron from A Piece of News. Cantuckee Diner would be our destination.

Arriving safely Caron, her mom, niece, nieces friend & I strode inside to have a lunch plate from the buffet. We filled our plates with wholesome, country eating. Afterwards we ordered desert: butterscotch pie, banana pudding, chocolate pie & coconut pie.  I don't know that we truly decided which was our favorite. Between food & drink we carried conversations as if we'd been friends for a long while.

Back outside we captured the moment while talking excitedly about our possible meetup in December. We'll explore Cincinnati perhaps atop Carew Tower or alongside the downtown fountain. Whatever the choice may be it'll be shared with a good friend.

I had a GREAT time and I'm so excited to have met you and to make plans. Rose, I miss Rose so much. I read and never commment and then she goes and says she misses me. -sniff- And Gigi says to update my blog. I may yet write about our meeting, but it won't be nearly so nicely written as yours. THANK YOU so much for making us all so comfortable and welcomed. You're a treasure.

What a lovely day! I have found online friendships to be just as important as those local ones. It is always very special when you can meet in person. I hope it comes together in December.

Cheers!

What a nice benefit to make new friends from your blog. It kind of adds a different dimension to the whole electronic communication thing! I hope you stay friends for a long time. New friends are often some of the best friends. Good luck!
