A fun part of traveling

is getting to meet your friends in the computer face to face (or meet them again in this case). This time it was Maribeth. She lives just a few miles from my parents but it took nearly the whole month before we were finally able to meet up. We didn't have much time but we crammed a lot of visiting into that one hour as we walked and shopped. She even got to meet Itai, who decided at the last minute to tag along. (Actually, he'd announced much earlier that he'd like to come but I didn't take him seriously and nearly left without him. Sorry kid.)
.
Here's a picture of the two of us that Itai took, with a bit of creative cropping by me (cropping out the hips = easy weight loss, though I did end up with one freakishly large looking boob. No idea how that happened, I'm not exactly well endowed). Head over to
Maribeth's blog for a few more pictures of Itai and I, and a whole lot of pictures of the world's most adorable puppies, born just the other day, and then head over to Mary the Teach's for more ruby red shots.

You look fine, not freakish or huge. And yes, I'm looking!

One day, we'll get to meet, my friend. And then, look out, world!

I'm glad you had a good time, and the puppies are adorable.

I bet you wore red so you could post this on Ruby Tuesday. (Only kidding...but now that I think of it, it's a good idea.)

It was so much fun seeing you too! And meeting your handsome son! I am already planning what we can do next year!
Greta and the pups were in to the Vets for a check today and everyone is well!

Patti said...

What a nice photo of two friendly bloggers. I smiled at EG's comment that you wore red on purpose for Ruby Tuesday. ;-)

You have a really pretty kitchen with those big windows and all the natural light they must let in.

Felisol said...

Hi, Robin,
I promise ten years from bow, you'll look at these pictures and think, "was I really that young, fresh and nice looking"?
And yes you were.
I went over to your friend's post and found a beautiful picture of you and Itai too.
You must have had a great holiday in the US.
From Felisol

Meeting online friends "IRL" is great. I always marvel at how the friendship can be "real."

luna miranda said...

4 Lettre Words said...

Very exciting!

Mojo said...

*ahem* I'll only say it's not at all freakish and then quietly step away from the boob conversation.

I've met a few bloggers in the three-dimensional world and it's always been a fantastic experience.

Next time you'll have to come south a little (lot) and have a tour of the Outer Banks or something.

Daryl said...

Meeting bloggers is such a fun thing ..

Zen said...
