the little red car ...

guess who pulled up into our driveway today?  terry (Canadian Blogger) and her hubby bernie, in their little red car!!!!  she said that they would stop in for coffee this year ... and yes indeedy - they did!

it was wonderful to meet them in person ... terry is as sweet in real life as she appears to be in her blog ... and bernie was her perfect partner - they completed each others sentences ...

terry is also the first blog bud that i meet - face to face ... and it was like we had known each other for years ... and i guess we sort of have - we've been reading each others blogs for 5 years now ...

it was great to chitchat and just share stories about people who we know in blogland ... really a very positive experience ... *smile*

they are on their way home now - terry took lots of pics, so it will be fun to see the visit through her eyes ...

blessings on your week!

DEar Saija,
I'm so happy that you found my Terry. The fourof you must be a perfect match.
I have been wondering what happened to that little red car and its owners.
Last time I heard from them, the fuel pump was acting up.
Now I can see for my own eyes that you are having a good time.
O, happy day!
From Felisol
P.S. My best to Leo, I hope he's doing well, even if I don't see him on the pictures.

Debra said...

Hey Saija! I'm thinking today is yours and Leo's anniversary---is that right? :) If so..... drum roll... happy anniversary to you both! I'm hoping you're having a special day together.

And just wanted to say, too, that I'm missing you here at your blog. Lots! Hope to see you back here soon. Blogland is just not the same without you. Uh, no. It isn't. Hugs, Debra

Terry said...

happy anniversary you two!
i am sorry i never wrote sooner but although that little red car and bernie are still raring to go, i have been a bit tired!
it was so nice to see you guys and that sweet little kitty...i really wanted to pop that kitty into the trunck and take him back with us but there just wasn't enough room!
god bless you and i hope that leo will be feeling better..love terry

How wonderful! I've met a handful of my online friends in person and it's always such a treat. I'd like to think that we might meet face to face one day, although it seems unlikely! Who knows? Maybe something will bring you to Texas or me back to the prairies sometime. :)
