This past weekend, Dddragon, TLP, and I had the great pleasure of meeting two blogging friends, Doug and Monika.
No, that's not Doug, up there. She's the dog who lives next door, and I'm not sure whether her name is Knockitoff or Getinhere. She's only warmed up to two people on this planet, and I'm not one of them, so she comes over to her fence and gives me the business every time she sees me.
Doug is quite the opposite--very warm and friendly. He absolutely never barks, and TLP can assure everyone that he follows directions very well. He's smart as a whip, and very interesting.
And it was sheer delight, to meet Monika. That's not me. I will admit to being a tad older than that, but Monika really is a sweet, smart, and witty penguin who fascinated us with descriptions of her beautiful home, Iceland. She is a wonderful ambassador.
Doug and Monika both traveled for hours to see us, which tickled us pink, and we hope to see them both again!
This time, we watched a belly dancer at dinner, then spent the next morning sniffing chocolate and listening to cows sing doo wop--just the normal stuff around here. Next time, who knows?
