ladies have been sharing a meal together probably since
the days of rock omelettes.
of course they probably weren’t dressed like the ladies above.
but then neither were we! LOL.
i’m getting ahead of my story.
on saturday i met a little celebrity in my world.
she would be the LAST to think of herself that way.
she says it’s a very common thing. but not to ME!!!
to me she’s a real celebrity.
i think of myself as pretty out~there. you know. able to handle
whatever comes my way.
i’ve been on my own ~ slaying my own dragons so to speak
for a long long time now.
but i have to tell you . . .
any lady that travels the country in her own rv ~ all by herself!
is simply an amazing celebrity to me.
and since i don’t know any others personally except her ~
then she will continue to be my famous rv braveheart!
yes! we got to meet face to face after all these months
of talking back and forth on our mutual blogs.
plus other blogs like the captain’s. she’s a fan of the old pirate too!
as mouthy as i am. and that’s very mouthy . . .
i’m actually quite shy inside. i was feeling a little nervous.
my subconscious must have thought we required
an ‘ice breaker.’
so i complied. as i got out of my car
i slammed my right index finger in the car door.
so i arrived at her rv door bleeding and in need of a bandage.
we didn’t even have a chance to say “HI!” yet for pete’s sake.
wow. she has EVERYTHING she needs. thank goodness i was
meeting someone who was living in their home and had all they needed!
and as it turned out . . . all i needed too!
she had the neatest little band aid. and antibiotic cream.
she let me tour her ‘rig.’
it is simply. absolutely. beautiful.
inside and out!
it’s only 24 feet long. but it’s as yar as a little sail boat.
i say ONLY 24 feet. driving that 24 feet might make one use
a different word than ONLY! LOL.
from her own blog ~ sand castle.
and when i saw it ~ it was just this clean and shiny!
the wood in it is real wood and rich with warmth and elegance.
this is her desk. when i saw it ~ it was clear. but this is good because it shows
how much room there is on it. it’s wonderful! and the window is just over it.
and speaking of windows ~ it’s full of them on both sides.
when i stood there a lovely cool breeze was making a little curtain at the window
yup. little rv breezes dancing throughout.
we had dinner together at cracker barrel.
we laughed and talked like two old friends
not two people who’ve really just met!
that’s what the magic of blogland does.
it makes friends out of people.
all of us lead such different lives
often in different parts of the country
or even in different countries!
isn’t it a wonderful thing ~
this world of the internet?
i think it is!
for all its miserable technical glitches
or it’s pitfalls and possible ‘dangers’ in some respects
is simply a wonderful way to know dear people.
people like my
whose real name is linda sand.
her site is
this should work. if it doesn’t just go to my ‘friends’ on the sidebar
and click on sand castle.
til soon old bean!
hope all your travels are as happy as rv braveheart’s are!
now i’m gonna go put some ice on this darned old
swollen blue finger. it’s starting to sing to me a bit.
and you might know . . .
it’s my MOUSE CLICKING finger.
take care old bean.
some of us learn the hard way.
and this old bean needs to be more careful.
