Our World Tuesday

Our Blogging Worlds Collided in the state park in Northern Illinois ... Who could have ever imagined that 
these three Bloggers could meet and the world around them would explode with joy, laughter and a sense of having been friends forever ...   

I didn't have any concerns about meeting the Queen ...(Life in a Canned Ham).  We had been sparring in jest for a long time so I fully expected her to be fun.  And, of course, McGuffy (McGuffy's Reader)is my neighbor so I knew she was fun.  But after a brief cautious exchange of politeness ... the realities started to flow.  We were all so willing to laugh and kid, even be silly and it was like a snowball rolling down a hill ... the longer we were together the more fun we had.  The Queen called it a therapy session and it was all of that and more (though most therapist I know wouldn't have been half as much fun).  And I have to say that "Left Brain" wisely allowed the women to go off on their own.  We took a quick spin around the State Park (ugly as it is this time of year) then off to our favorite Coffee House.  There we spent the afternoon glued to our chairs talking, laughing, kidding, confessing ... I will say that most of the conversation was between McGuffy and the Queen because they have much more in common, but we all shared what we had to share and loved every minute of it.  It was planned to meet again the next day and we would bring our dogs so George and Gracie could meet them .

On day two we brought Stella and Izzi ... George and Gracie were not impressed.  They are two very beautiful and sensitive kitties.  Gracie probably would have gone out walking with us, but George is the shy boy (you have to watch out for the shy ones:).  This time we took a walk through part of the park and it was still ugly ... though we did see a few  birds.  It was really cold and windy so we decided, of course, to go to the Dairy Queen.  What else do you do on a cold windy day when you are a little bit crazy.  We dropped the dogs off at home (not sharing my Blizzard with Izzi) and off we went.  The Blizzards were delicious and the company was even better.  We, of course, had to cap off our day visiting an old family farm cemetary.  Getting in and out was not easy, but we continued the banter and fun and if there were any ghosts there, we probably scared them off.  Then back to SeeMore (The Queen's Mobil Home) and we said our Goodbyes ...  I can't remember when I have had so much silly, pointless but truly wonderful fun.  Thank you Queen Jester and McGuffy Ann ... We must do this again, Sistas!
