When Quanah moved from Oregon after getting a teaching job in Indianapolis last summer, I wondered when I would ever get up to Portland again. After all, whenever I went up there, I managed to see long time blogging friends, Marilyn and Jone.
Well, it's been one year since Q and his wife Erin moved and two years since I've been to Portland. Happily, I noticed on FB that Jone was in Santa Monica this week and her path home always leads her past an exist just three miles from my house. So - today we met up at Starbucks, the ubiquitous meeting place for all travelers who have lots of online friends everywhere, and did a lot of catching up.
And, of course . . .
I forgot to take a picture.
So I went digging and found a picture of us at our first meet up at Powell's Books in Portland. Seven years later, I think we are holding up pretty well. LOL
It was great seeing you and Chuck again, Jone, and terrific to meet your daughter and grand daughter this time around, as well.
