I have to admit that I DID NOT want to get up, get dressed, put on makeup, and, go out in the cold! It was humbling to go out in public knowing that I looked like an 18 wheeler and I had tangled since my eye is now shades of green, yellow, purple, deep purple and yuk.
However, I layered up, stopped and got some money. I even found a parking place near Cafe Monet where I hooked up with two blogger extraordinaire.
Jennifer and Billie.
Billie writes Reservations for One and is the person who got me going in this blog thing.
Jennifer writes Red Shoes are Better than Bacon.
I've known Billie for eleven or twelve years but I've been aware of Jennifer's writing for at least twenty years. Long, long before we actually met. We actually met in person just this year. She is, without a doubt, one of the most knowledgeable people about Mexico that I have ever read. In fact, I saved all the articles she wrote lo those many years ago prior to my moving to Mexico.
Billie and I have become very close friends. She is a delightful and gutsy woman.
If I told you all the subjects that we covered today, you would double over either in amazement or laughter.
Both Billie and Jennifer have a wicked sense of humor.
We discussed mole and men. We discussed Morelia and San Miguel. Cuba and Columbia. Another topic was...........oh well, you get the idea. We went on and on. One topic leading to another. Of course fellow bloggers were included in that discussion as well. We all agreed that our lives have been enriched from writing.
I didn't want the meal or the conversations to end. Since Jennifer lives in Morelia, we don't see her enough.
The gathering didn't end without us making plans to go visit her where we could get together and talk for as long as we could possibly want to talk.
In fact we talked so long today, that they finally asked us for the table! I don't think that has ever happened to me in Mexico in the past.
I left them to go to another appointment with a lilt in my step and thoughts in my mind of a future trip to Morelia.
