Lunch Outings

I have been slack about posting mostly because what I am sewing I don't want to share at the moment. I need another week before I can put up some pictures. However, in between sewing and other quilty business, I have had a few nice outings.

One was with an internet friend. I got to meet Barbara (AKA B2) and her husband Mike. Barbara and Mike live in Oregon and were traveling the West with there cat Trooper. I didn't get a picture. I forgot my camera and I didn't even think about my phone having a camera. So, I probably should not even mention the great lunch we all had at Ester's Taco House in Placentia. Trust me, it was nice meeting my internet pal, who is a lovely lady. Of course we also stopped in at Quilter's Garden that is across the drive from Esters. I think we helped the economy a little.

I did remember that I had my cell phone with me when my good friend and neighbor, Dee, and I celebrated her birthday yesterday. We went to Da Vinci's Restorante in Long Beach. Da Vinci's is located next to the Long Beach Airport and has a great view, especially at night. Take a look at our lunch. Let's see, Dee had a Chicken Parmesan Sandwich and I had a Portabella Mushroom Sandwich. So Yummy! We took half home so we could justify that great dessert.

Today I met another internet pal, Cynthia and her husband Raymond. They are here from Arkansas, visiting her family. They are travelling with their two dogs whose names escape me. Cyn and Raymond are leaving California tomorrow. That meant today was the only day left to fit in a lunch at a quaint, and busy, Chinese Restaurant. We also were managed a visit to Quilter's Garden and again added to the economy. Cyn and Raymond are a great couple and I felt I knew her forever. You can see why I hate to have my picture taken. I look like a deer in headlights.
The world is so much smaller these days with the internet and the groups you form on Yahoo. I have been able to meet several of my CRAFT friends from all over the world. Very special indeed.
Thanks for stopping in. See you here next week.
