Benefits of Blogging

Karen & Mrs. G.

One of the great benefits of blogging is meeting wonderful new people online. And occasionally, one is lucky enough to actually meet those people in person.

I met Mrs. G. two summers ago (and blogged it here).  Last Thursday evening, I had the privilege of spending several hours with her. We were chased out of a restaurant and then a wine bar.

Silly managers, why do you close so early?
We wanted to talk! 

The infamous kitty picture is no small print!

For the record, I have loved her kitty picture for a long time. It’s Folk Art, people, and it now hangs in her writing room — a beautiful writing room! with a view! — but she let me hold it for a photograph.   🙂

That emoticon is for you, Heather.   😉
