It's Saturday evening and I am back from Stampaway. I can't begin to tell you what a wonderful couple Mary and Joe H. are.  I am so happy to have met them both. We walked around some together and sat and talked after lunch. I actually didn't buy a lot because I didn't shop that much. (It's not like I needed anything)! But just the day with new friends was terrific. My SIL Sharon went even though she wasn't feeling well and still has the brace on her foot. I just kept thinking how nice it was for Mary and Joe to come all this way and how lucky I am to meet them. Tim Holtz and Mario came out to get a bite to eat while we were sitting and talking. Mary asked Tim if he would mind taking some pictures for her friend and he couldn't have been nicer. He even held my phone while I took pictures of him and Mary! She will be posting her pictures soon. Joe was nice enough to take pictures of the three of us. Even after I told him the wrong button to push. I'm off to sit for a bit. I received my hug from Darnell from Mary and I gave her her hug from Di and Bonnie. Here are the pix I had on my camera and phone.  Be kind to one another.

  7. Drat, I wrote a comment and it disappeared. What a fabulous day you had and such happy photos too! Two of my favourite bloggers together. AND, what a bonus to meet with Tim and Mario - now, if you don't wash your top you were wearing you could bring it to the Playground and charge us all to have a stroke (without you inside it needless to say!).

    Many years ago when I was at boarding school in Germany, one of the junior kids managed to grab the Beatles autographs on an envelope when their paths crossed at Hamburg airport. The little minx made a fortune out of us 'Beatles crazy' girls - I think it was a Deutschmark to hold the envelope for a few precious minutes!! Ha! I bet she went on to make her mark as a businesswoman!

    So delighted for you and Mary to have had such a special time together.

    Hugs
