A Beautiful Day

My day did not start out beautiful as I got up at 5:30 a.m. and found the lawn TPed. Getting up at 5:30 wasn't beautiful either...but Ernest was getting picked up at 6. So I spent an hour plus cleaning up the lawn in my pajamas, then went back to bed.

But the day rapidly got better, as I met the beautiful Barbra for lunch. This is the first time I've met another blogger! Barbra is just as kind and lovely in person as she is on her blog.

She was visiting my neck of the woods to sing at a wedding.

She had enough time, so we talked, strolled through town, bought some socks, and had a delicious lunch. The waiter kindly took our picture!


And yes, we did a shoe picture too! I wore the leopard slides so you all would recognize me!


It was a pleasure to meet you in person, Barbra. I hope we get to do it again.

The shoe pic! Mandatory for blogger meeting, it seems.

Looks like fun. Man, sorry about the TP. It is a mess to clean. 2/3 of my children are thankfully past that stage, but, man oh man, I'm not looking forward to round three.

Explain TP to me. I know what it is, but I don't understand why? We just don't do it in the UK. Isn't it for special occasions, like a graduation or something? The thought of waking up and the house had been attacked by loo rolls for no reason whatsoever seems bonkers to me.

See? If I lived closer that could have been us! I even have a pair of the shoes she was wearing.

Glad you got to meet another blogger and one question, why didn't you make Ernest clean up the TP? My parents always made me clean it up assuming it was one of my friends who did the deed. Not that I don't wander around in my pajamas at 5am, but I usually have the dogs with me. In fact, I've been wandering around with the dogs far too often at 5am lately. Can you send them a memo since they obviously don't listen to me?

V - Ernest did help me clean up, until his ride got there at 6 am. But I don't think it was his friends, I think it had to be some of Frank's who can drive, and Frank was out of town and I didn't want to leave it up.

Strictly - Bonkers is right.

How fun that you got to meet Barbra!

Pete and I were talking last night about when we're going to be out your way next. I'm hoping for next April during spring break...

OH no, TP! I never TP'd anyone's lawn, but I have been known to go with a few friends and spork or lawn animal some yards!

Flutterby said...

TP'ing a yard... is that back *in* or did it never go *out*, LOL!
