So I got to meet an author . . .

Doing this blog is fun. I have never found it a chore to write a post. I fully admit having to occasionally scramble for material to come up with a post a day.

Part of the fun is also meeting people. A lady commented on a post of mine a few months ago and I responded to her email address. We have been irregularly corresponding since. I found out that she writes magazine articles and is the author of at least four books that I found online. She and her husband founded a magazine back in 1971. I found out she was going to be in Longview, Alberta. I asked if she would mind meeting. She was up for it so I met her for dinner at the Twin Cities Hotel in Longview, Alberta after work on June 16, 2017.

For privacy reasons I will not mention her name. She is older, a widow, and reminded me of my grandmother. She is an adventurous type who thinks nothing about driving for hours by herself along remote rural roads. She lives in British Columbia and for all of her travels in southern Alberta, which are extensive, she missed a few spots that I had visited. It was a fun visit having dinner with a few drinks and listening to live music in the hotel. With luck I might get to meet up with her again sometime. I will be on the lookout for her upcoming book about her travels in southern Alberta.


  1. Isn't it interesting the people you meet? I am glad it was a good evening.

  2. I have met some of my blogger friends in person, and it has always been a pleasure.
