We're Home!

We left Thursday around 2:30pm and got home Saturday night around 11:30pm. We went 990 miles during that timespan. We visited a few places but my first post HAS to be about the last place we visited and that was getting to meet our friend Jeni from Down River Drivel!

We became blogging buddies three years ago, then moved up to emails and finally to phone calls. The face to face meeting was merely a formality. I could have stayed in her kitchen drinking coffee and talking for a week or so I think. She made us feel very comfortable.

(Psst, Jeni. Next time turn the coffeepot ON. Hehee.)

Jeni shows us a project she's working on.

Mike makes friends with Sammy the dog.
Or maybe it's the other way around?

Jeni meets Hannah as we get ready to leave.

I'm sooooo glad my phobias were held at bay long enough for this meeting to happen. I had started getting shaky about being away from home the day before.

To read about our meeting from Jeni's point of view and to see a couple more pictures, go here.

I think we were both doing our posts about your visit here at about the same time. I forgot about downloading the photos till late and then, the darned program didn't want to cooperate at first, which made me a little later but finally got them up and loaded. Even went to bed before 1 a.m. but you can see from the time now, the early bedtime didn't do me much good. So, to re-relax, I took a shower and decided to play on the computer a bit before heading back to bed -give the shower relaxation thing a chance to work better maybe?

That's awesome! I remember when I got to meet you - there was the initial 'meeting in person' thing, and once we got that out of the way, it was chatting non-stop hehehehe... oh yeah, and a possessed pig..

Just got done reading about the meeting over at Jeni's place and came over here to read your perspective. How awesome that you all got to meet! I love Jeni! She's so down to earth and I love the way she invites everyone into her life. I hope to one day meet up with some of my blog buddies too. How fun!

Nice that you could meet. I have met two of my blogging buddies one from about 360 miles south of where I am and another in Mexico. It is really nice after you have been communicating for some time.
