We Spent the Most Wonderful Day with Middie!

This was such a great day! We got here late last night. Middie had the day off, so she, her son Billy, James, and I spent the day together. We talked a lot, spent a little time at a couple stores, had a great dinner at a neat little Italian restaurant, and we went out on a pier on Lake Erie. Middie is such a sweetie, just as I knew she would be, and we are in love with both her and Billy. Billy is a super smart, very well-mannered boy. We hated saying goodbye and definitely plan to get together again someday.

Barbara
P.S. I will post the pictures we took in a few posts so that no post is too big. They aren't in order, but they were all taken today.

Well, this meeting was especially special to us because this is the one we had been planning for a long time. We have been wanting to meet middie for two or three years now.

No, a day isn't enough! Too bad you are working tomorrow! We are staying an extra day, so that we can do laundry and some make some antique shop stops. As Billy said, it's a nice little town. Wow, I just can't get over what a good time we had today!

YOUR Lake Erie was very cool! In fact, it was a little cold! LOL Seriously, it was beautiful!

Not only is Billy adorable, but that is one smart young man! I think James has a buddy for life!

Uhhhh... I knew that!

I was referring to the mutual adoration for long haired rocker bands that I share with my friend Middie.
But I'm really glad it fit!!!!!

I just remembered something strange that happened at dinner tonight. I had my left hand in my lap. I heard what sounded like a small fork dropping, and I felt something hit my foot. I looked down, and my wedding ring and engagement ring were both on the floor! They had just fallen off of my hand! I wasn't playing with my rings (that I can remember anyway), and I haven't lost weight (I did lose about 10 pounds when I was in the hospital, but I'm sure I have gained that and more on our trip). The only time I have ever had my rings fall off before was when I was shaking my hand up and down when getting ready to test my blood glucose level. This was so weird!
