Last night I had the privilege again of meeting two of my very favorite people for the third time since we became blogging buds. Ferd and Gail met me at an undisclosed
My foot waited patiently while the infamous bloggers drove through storm and rain in the dark of night amid terrible lightning and thunder.
(actually I went to the ladies room 12 times and checked my makeup while tapping my foot. Can you feel the drama? )
WHO would keep a Queen waiting?

We toasted Gail's new blog, blossoming and continuing friendships...hiccup...and a few other things that got lost in my fuzzy

Were your ears burning? They should have been..but only in the kindest of ways.
