FROM NUTWOOD TO 7TH AND MONTANA!


The crowd welcomed two new visitors at 7th and Montana yesterday ... and, no, they weren't loons.  Fellow Bloggers Beth and Ken, from Nutwood Junction and Bucko's World respectively, made the scene from Indiana.  Their visit -- the culmination of a road trip across Route 66 -- went off without a hitch ... that is, until they reached Our Favorite Starbucks.  There wasn't a Loon in sight.  As if to spite me, Rigolatte, known for belting out Opera tunes from a perch in the Men's Room, walked by giggling three minutes before Beth and Ken arrived.  "Wait!," I yelled, "Come Back!"  But it was no use.  Beth and Ken, determined to put their Spycams to good use, had to resort to desperate measures.  Ken snuck up behind me, snapped a surprise photo and posted it to Facebook on-the-spot.  "Ha, Ha," chuckled Beth, "You've been hoisted on your own petard!"  And indeed, I felt petarded.  Thanks, Beth and Ken, for a nice visit!

It was our absolute pleasure, and we need to start planning out next connection. You are a wonderful person!

No loons, just chatting with a great guy and meeting some of the "regulars." I hope we can return the hospitality one day...you are always welcome at Nutwood!

So neat you got to connect with blog buddies this past week. Too bad we were unable to connect all at once. I hate they missed the Hello Kitty Explosion. Ironically, after that Olivia gave me a Hello Kitty pink watch. I told her about the Hello Kitty explosion and told her to visit your blog. She visits mine often so hopefully she'll be a regular of yours too. She lives over in Highland. Got to go to Huntington Beach the last night for dinner and it thrilled me to no end that I got to see it. I'll have to go back out there though as I'm not finished exploring and I want to take the family this time!! I'll call you if we do. Have you logged in on my cell now! :-) Have a good week! I'm gone to PA next week! Won't be near as exciting.
