Da Count-Look Out! Here I Come!

Guess where I'm going tomorrow?  It's on the west coast.  It's got a reputation for being kind of rainy (though I am pretty sure we've had a helluva lot more rain than they have this summer so I am actually hoping to dry out a bit while there.) I'll be there 10 days.  It's where she lives.  She is coming too.  They've met each other before but I haven't met either of them.  We are all very excited.  Wheeeeee!!!!!!!

Mr. Lime and the Limelets tended to refer to my online pals as Freaks in the Box (a term coined by Logo's family).  They think it's a little silly to have "imaginary" friends. I have always countered that no one thought my grandmother's lifelong pen pal from England was imaginary or freaky and they met each other several times (I've known Susie and Logo longer than I've known any other online pals.  It's been almost 10 years).  My family realized there was a very real and deep dimension to the friendship when Susie organized a truly jaw-dropping act of kindness for Calypso's benefit a few months ago (that several of you participated in and for which I am deeply grateful).  Mr. Lime had an airline voucher left from almost a year ago when our church flew him out to Colorado to help move our new youth pastor back East.  The voucher was set to expire and he had no use for it so he said, "I thought maybe you'd like to use it so you could meet your friend in person."  WHEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Susie said, "WHEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!! Let's go to Seattle so you can meet Logo too!"

Logo said, "WHEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"


Look out Seattle! Here I come!


I hope to be able to put up a few posts here and there along the way but won't promise any particular sort of schedule until I get back....and readjust to East coast time.

An absolutely delightful convergence of worlds. I've been enjoying the snippets I'm getting from Other Social Media sources; it's like this is some small payoff for all you've dealt with in the last year!

Law enforcement officers on both sides of the Canadian border have interfered but nothing shall halt the Lime/Logo express, NOTHING!!

I'm reminded of a line from Calvin and Hobbes: Sometimes I think all my friends have been imaginary.

I'm proud to be a freak-in-the-box myself, and you can quote me on that. More hamster, my dear?

Hope you had a great trip.

Go Lime. Say "hi" for me and buy me an adult beverage. Don't forget that Radish King is also a denizen of Seattle.
