We had the best time! I am not joking, we shared an instant bond of friendship as soon as we laid eyes on each other! Kind of like with you kitchenelf. KE, I hope you get to meet Michele someday. You will adore her!

We talked for about 3 1/2 hours or more, and if it weren't so late, we'd probably still be talking! All four of us had so many interests in common--I doubt we would ever lack for something to talk about! She married a hottie too! (But then, so did he!).

Our server, Judy, was a hoot! She took the pictures of all of us together.

I feel so blessed to have found such wonderful friends! We love you too!

Barbara

Yep, we had a great time ChefJune!

Dina, I fully intend to meet you someday. I don't know when it will be, but we will meet! And I have a feeling that after all our conversations by email and MSN Messenger, we will share a record-breaking hug! I'm looking forward to meeting you, so we have to make it happen!

Barbara
