Six years we produced an award winning section for the kids magazine that consisted of a poem, fingerplay and illustration. It was the best job I ever had. And one of the best Art Directors I ever worked with.
We had had great conversations about the work and other stuff long distance. Although we never met in person, I felt like I knew her like an old friend.
A couple weeks ago Karen, who lives in the DC area, came out to visit her Boston friends and I was lucky enough to be one.
Karen got two dishes, and I got two giant brand new down filled couch pillows for a great price.
I have also donated quite a bit of crystal and china to this clean, well run store.
We ended her visit at The Miss Mendon Dinner. An old dinning car that has been transported to the back of a car dealership. Excellent food. Homemade potato chips are the best!
I got to show Karen a bit of my world out in the country, before rushing her back to the train to Boston. And I do mean RUSH she was on the train 2 minutes before it pulled out Whew!!
