After the holiday in the holiday!

Well, back in Cincinnati and life got back to normal duties helping out with the little kids that Karen 'minds' during the day (oh, the joys of an iPad with Angry Birds on!) and lifeguard duties when required.
I'm now going to tell you about a second kidnap attempt!!!  This was with Sue Anna.  YES, woweeee, I finally got to meet her and MORE.  

Remember that Gina travelled a vast distance (well, by UK standards) to meet?  Well if Sue Anna had travelled the distance that she did in the UK she'd have fallen off the edge and drowned in the sea!!!!  

Not only did she drive a humungous way but she also picked up Diane (Lace-lovin' Librarian) on the way!!!!  WHAT a treat for me - two wonderful people in one 'hit'.

Now one of the things I find so different in America is the fact that here we were - 3 tatters with no place to go to natter.  Remember that part of the USA was suffering a major heatwave and we would've melted outside.  So we went to Panera Bread which is a food outlet chain which spreads all over America (I think!!!).  There we commandeered a corner for the entire afternoon.  Here's a picture of the three of us!!!
Now, if you ever get the chance to meet these two lasses - be warned.  Be VERY warned about them.  They laugh loads and talk lots (well, I guess I do too!!!!).  Both are beyond generous which I'll show you on Monday.

We were in our wee corner of the restaurant for about six hours just talking and tatting.  WHAT a joy.

Sue Anna did have a tremendously long way to drive! I'm so glad she wanted some company, because it really was a wonderful day!

That was very good of the place to let you sit there for six hours - can't see that happening in the UK. Good photo of you all, but who took it? Must have been a passing stranger who thought that if they offered to take your photograph you might get out of the place!! Obviously did not work!

Had such a great time. Panera is like that, they don't care if you sit all day. Remember I drive for a living and putting 9-10 hrs a day behind the wheel is the norm. Lol.

Sounds like heaven, 6 hours of tatting talk,
Your holiday has been fun with tatting thrown in, what joy.

I've met both of these girls and totally agree that they are beyond generous! Sue Anna invited me to come with, but I turned her down because I didn't think that I'd survive the trip! I'm glad that you all had a good time together, and I've enjoyed seeing the pictures.
