We Met Aunty Em, I Mean Andy M Last Night!

We ended up in a little motel with no Internet last night, so I wasn't able to share earlier.

James and I met Andy M at a really nice Japanese/Chinese restaurant. Baseball was a hot topic, but we talked about quite a few things. He is a really nice guy--you all need to meet him! He was even nice enough to bring us a couple boxes so we could mail some things home, and he even included tape. Thanks Andy!

A couple of the pictures show Andy and James with their chopsticks. They are all pretty self-explanitory.

Barbara and James: Thanks for the kind comments. You can cash that check now.

I had the best time with these two. What all the others have said about how great they both are is not an exaggeration!

I almost missed them as I was out of town for two days but scrambled when I saw they were in the area and we were able to get together. I'm glad I did!

Andy, you look like a cross between Cary Grant and Gregory Peck (yes, BT, I DO mean when they were alive and handsome! tsk)

Bet you get that a lot!

I don't know how he does it, but he always manages to get the food from the chopsticks to his mouth!

Don't torment us like this! You know you will be seeing us as soon as we can arrange it! I wish it could be sooner than it will be though!
