Today I had lunch with eb and the Queen! Wow! Yes, they are real people! We had lunch at a little pub around the corner from my house called The RaT (really it's called The Rose and Thistle but we love an acronym). The RaT is next door to a yarn shop so I think the Queen was pleased by that detail.
It was wonderful to meet these two characters. They are on the Pacific Northwest leg of their current car trip. Originally there was talk of them staying with me, but with my life being in such a weird state of flux right now, well, it didn't turn out. Happily, they have friends in a suburb west of here. And, come to find out, the Queen is allergic to cats and we have three. Might not have worked out too well anyway. But, I would have loved to have them stay so that we could drink copious amounts of deliciousness and tell tall tales. I'm sure it would have happened like that...
However, I got to have a long leisurely lunch with them and that was very pleasant. Amazingly, the irascible T came along and behaved herself pretty well. I'm including these two pictures as proof but, as you know, my phone takes the crappiest photos of all time so it could be anybody in the picture. Especially the second one.
Hahahahaha! That's me with eb behind the flash! I think she'll send me some pix, or post them on her blog. They'll certainly be better than these.
So, there you have it. Real life people behind all the bloggish glamour. I love it when that happens.
