So, fast forward 3-1/2 years to today, Thursday, July 22, 2010. Mr. Snoots and I decided to meet at a favorite local lunch spot (dive) that has awesome cheeseburgers and home made french fries. These days, if I'm craving meat of any kind, I try to eat it early in the day, since it's more difficult for the body to process beef if eaten later in the day. So, this was cheeseburger/fries day. Can I hear a Hallelujah here please? Half of the way through my burger (which is all I can eat these days anyway), two ladies entered said lunch spot (dive) and I thought I knew one of them from way back, but considering the decline of my mind these days, I just wasn't sure. Then, on her way to a table, she stopped by our table AND IT HAPPENED!
She stopped by our table and said, "I have to tell you how much I enjoy anonymously reading your blog, especially the foxes coverage." Momentarily dumbstruck, I managed to recover long enough to say, "Thank you!", when all I really wanted to do was sit and stare at her with my mouth gaping wide open, in total awe. I wanted to drink in my first ever (public) recognition of my blog. Honestly, I could have sat there and wallowed in it for hours, but I had places to go and things to do, so I moved on after relishing it for at least 20 minutes. It Was Heaven On Earth. Seriously. I'm still rather giddy from the experience.
It turns out that she and I had been on the Cancer Society Board together as well as both being members of the Junior League. It had just been so long since we'd seen each other that apparently neither of us was able to remember at first. Sure. There's a surprise. Like my mind works according to instructions. NOT. The fact remains, this is a woman I've always admired so it was a special day for me.
Anyway, here's a special *shout out* to Betty! Thanks for being a loyal
So has anyone else experienced total obliteration of their blogroll lately? Mine has disappeared like the wind on any given day in West Texas. What is up with that? How can I possibly follow my favorite blogs without links? WHAT IS GOING ON BLOGSPOT? Get a grip because I'm ready to find a new home if you can't provide a better service. Really. Seriously.
