When I was a young one, I apparently had the habit of adding to the dinner table conversation often starting with "when I was walking with Paula..." Paula was my neighborhood friend and I guess we found some interesting (to me) stories to share. I don't remember this 'habit' but my older sister does :-)
But now I do hear myself often saying "when I was walking with the dogs..." And it happened just like that about 2 weeks ago! I was walking the dogs around the neighborhood and noticed someone's license plate bracket that read "Dogs for Diabetics". I live in a neighborhood that has homes for rent on a weekly basis to allow visitors to enjoy the central coast. The next day some of these visitors were out in front of the house loading up this mentioned car and I had to ask about the dogs for diabetics. Well, these ladies were quite friendly and loved on my dogs till Wendy came out to tell me more about the D for D's. She fosters the dogs while they head on their way for more training. Very cool service!
As they were getting ready to go somewhere, I had the feeling I knew where. I was right. These ladies are quilters and they were headed to my favorite LQS, Quilter's Cupboard in Atascadero. This brought more to talk about and I ended up with a lovely invitation to join them for dinner and a show n tell the next evening. It was great fun and yet, I forgot my camera :-(
Fortunately, Sharon didn't :-) So head on over to her blog and read the posts about these very fun women and their yearly visit to my neighborhood! Quiltgranny's Shoes
