Today I had a wonderful visit with Miss Diane from Diane's Page. She is a fellow blogger I met online. She lives about 10 miles from Miss Sue so it was perfect to meet her. Other than MapQuest being wacky we had an excellant visit. She is all that she says she is on her blog. Read her 100 things...she really does do a mean chicken impression. I would love to take her to a farm and watch the rooster run. It is nice to broaden my horizons. Miss Sue has represented all things south to me; well now I can also reference Diane. She is a born and raised Arkansan. She knows the South. I love learning from these women. The resturant we went to was an Italian fine dining. White table cloth and all...not very southern, I know. But it was GOOD! Oh and the white table clothes had paper over the top, it is their trademark to draw on the tabletops. We were too busy chatting to draw. Besides the fact that neither of us draw worth a hoot. After lunch we came back to Miss Sue's so she could meet the kids and Miss Sue. The picture below is the two of us near the end of our visit. I tell you it is great putting a face with a name. As well as knowing that the person behind the blog is as sweet as you expected. Thanks Diane it was so nice to meet you!
Just before I left for lunch Miss Sue did DDs hair up in curlers. She just knew she was as pretty as can be. When we went to take them out we realized how tricky brush curlers are on little girls with fine hair.
It was still precious.
A few things I have learned while I have been here.
1. It doesn't matter where you live, life is much the same wherever you go.
2. People may sound different but they say pretty much the same things.
3. They are just better cooks in the south.
4. If you are in the north and you know how to cook, feel free to teach me.
5. Big cities people are more rushed and more likely to be rude.
6. Country folk are as nice as can be. Reckon
7. That Kudzu came over from Japan for erosion control. It has since taken over; you can not kill it.
8. I can blog from any where as long as there is a computer.
9. I am learning how to cook...this is another post, for another day
10. THEY CHARGE TAX ON GROCERIES!
The last one threw me for a loop. In Michigan they charge tax on everything but the groceries; if it is meant for consumtion it is NOT taxed. Ya live and learn.
