To me, one of the bonuses of blogging is meeting other bloggers. Some we really only get to know through blog comments, but others we are fortunate enough to actually meet in person.
A couple of years ago, I learned about Pam, who, along with her ginger kitty, Sam, writes One Spoiled Cat. Our friendship began first with the blogs, then with e-mails, which became more frequent. Over time, Motor Man and I met Pam and her husband, Dave, to have lunch and do a little antiquing, and they’ve visited us here in our home town.
Yesterday, Motor Man and I met Pam and Dave in Strasburg, Virginia. We antiqued, then had lunch at Hotel Strasburg. This was a “return engagement’. You may recall that the first time we met the two of them was in Strasburg in April of last year.
The four of us don’t get together all that often: perhaps a couple of times a year. It’s always nice to see each other in person. With all the e-mailing that we do, you’d think we wouldn’t have anything to talk about when we meet. Wrong.
Pam took a picture of Motor Man and me in front of the hotel.
And we returned the favor.
Northern Virginia had winter weather earlier in the week, resulting in a couple of inches of snow. We were so glad the highways were clear yesterday, so we could continue with our Christmas get-together plans.
See you again soon, Pam & Dave!
