Sometimes Mike gets irritated with me because he thinks I spend too much time with my laptop reading blogs, commenting on blogs, and writing my own blog posts. HMPFF! Too bad. I (we) have been so very fortunate to communicate with and sometimes actually meet bloggers that have been very kind to us.
One of those people is Teresa from Lake Stevens (north of Seattle, Washington.) I wrote about her earlier this month because she is going to do the Breast Cancer 3 Day Walk this September. While we had never met, Teresa is out there commenting on many of the Mexican blogs I read and it felt like I already knew her. She has been a volunteer English teacher in Mexico and she’s from the area I lived in for most of my life. This weekend Teresa made a special visit to Salem and I finally got to spend some “live” time with her. What a neat lady! Of course, Mike fell for her and I had a tough time keeping them apart...
She is just like I had expected and we gabbed and gabbed and ate and ate! And last night we met up with Mr. Steve Cotton who treated us to dinner at Bentley’s Grill in downtown Salem. It was so neat to trade stories about each of our Mexican adventures, as well as our American adventures. All four of us love to talk and it was fun to watch the turn-taking. Thank you Steve!
This morning Teresa treated me to breakfast at Busick Court, another downtown restaurant. It was yummy (I had heuvos rancheros) and a nice place for 2 gals to drink coffee and chat. Thank you Teresa! But before we knew it, it was time for Teresa to head out of Salem and on to her friends’ place south of here.
It was a good weekend. It was another confirmation for me that blogging is more than just writing…it’s about people.
(By the way, if any other bloggers want to visit Salem and take me out to eat just let me know!)
