Kidding, but Pooka and I are a long way from home, in Portland (apparently the "Austin" of Oregon--funny, because our other Dwellar meeting was in the Austin of Texas), and on top of that, BigV went to GREAT LENGTHS to drive down here from WA, just to have dinner with us. I mean, you Philly cats need to be having brunch every frickin' Sunday.

BigV, by the way, is exactly the same guy in person. Totally class act. He looked a little like a cross between a wise old owl and a scary biker--the combined effect of which was a little like Theoden of Rohan.

Plus, I got a sneak preview of a few "What is This" ideas!

(Sworn to secrecy...)
Well HELL. This is what I get for not hanging out in the Cellar more often. *pouts*

I would have loved to meet up with you and BigV, but clearly I am a big, stupid loser. Y'all could've met here at my place (Vancouver WA-ish) and we'd have had a grand old time. *more pouting*

Next time, guys... Next time.

No little microphone, ear, stethoscope, or 'listening' device.

Interestingly, no idea what the little bird does. Makes 3 dollars fly out of my pocket? It's the developer giving me the bird?
That bird icon is a Twitter icon. That's all I just noticed. I personally have not done anything with it.

Carruthers came over today.
Charmed the 'rents. Of course.
Very much younger than them, but having lived his life in the region, remembers a lot of the shops and places that Mum remembers.

He came for about two hours and I was surprised when he left; just because it seemed like he'd only been there ten minutes.
Sweet FSM he has a cracking knock on his forehead from a loft-beam accident recently.
We'd joked about it because of my extensional facial bruising, but compared to anyone else it really is a corker.

Mum was completely charmed and although she'd invited him round "any time" originally for saving my life, she now really means it would be great to sit and chat.
Carruthers has the kind of natural conversation which means he can find an interest for anyone he is speaking to, but I genuinely think they interested eachother on some subjects. Or he faked it well enough to fool all of us anyway!

Just don't let her yap on if you meet her again Carr. Or talk about me. AT ALL.
You're safe BTW, as well as being well out of your age range, she loves Dads as much as she moans about him Oh and really, if you're ever at a loose end do drop round - just call first, She'd never avoid you, but she has the Church, the Community, the monsters and a host of old biddies to yap at.

I had such a lovely afternoon.
So weird and yet so right to see Carr in the 'rents' flat.
Even Dads dredged up some memories. When he left, Dad said, "Your friend Edward took me right back. Things I didn't even think I remembered."
Well, it is a compliment really. His eldest brother was Ted.

Sorry about the football thing They follow it compulsively.
FTR they had the results coming through in the background; my parents aren't rude enough to watch a game with guests in the flat. Unless England got through to the World Cup Final. (Ahahahahahahahahaha)

Oh, for those not in the know, Edward is not Carruthers' name. Not even close.

It was great seeing Sundae and meeting her parents at their flat yesterday afternoon. Two hours did indeed pass in ten minutes, or so it seemed.

The house, of which the flat is one part, dates from the early eighteenth century, according to a local history book.
Properties of that age can sometimes have low door frames and I managed to avoid a cranium v lintel interface.
Last Sunday's events apparently did knock some sense into me. It won't last...

Sundae's Aylesbury thread, Posts #493 to #498 might be of interest to Dwellars.

I met Elspode and his wife for lunch this afternoon. Luckily I noticed on Facebook that he was in Ashville. The city is about an hour away. So, I messaged him and drove out with hubby to have lunch with them today. We met his 2 other friends too. Nice people. He and his wife had to leave right after lunch, so we didn't get a chance to hang out long. My hubby didn't want to get stuck in Ashville's Friday rush hour, so I couldn't do any shopping. However, I did get a chance to buy some chocolates. I'll try to go out to Bojangle's and post a picture tomorrow.

I don't know who's luckier, him or you.

Well done Lola!
