Brunching Bloggers


When My Rare One and I were in Hamilton, we had the great pleasure of meeting a couple of local bloggin' buddies: Francie of a North End Journal and Lois of Mid Life Fibres! I've read both their blogs for quite a while now so it was a special treat to meet them in person! We got together for brunch at a lovely little artisan coffee shop called The Cannon and had a wonderful time.

Here's Francie (in pink) and Lois (in plaid) helping me decipher a map of Hamilton. Figuring out how to drive up and down that darn Niagara Escarpment really confused us poor prairie flatlanders . . . .


We all had The Cannon's specialty -- waffles! Here I'm about to enjoy a delicious ham-and-cheese waffle sandwich. Yes, those are my (*gasp*) naked hands. It's too hot in the summer to wear my purple fingerless knit gloves . . . .


Thank you, Lois and Francie, for giving us such a delightful Hamilton memory! Now, LOL, back to blogging, everyone!

now thats fun, meeting the bodies behind the screen, your gloveless hands are great to be out in the open, lovely strong hands, now that's a great shirt as well, my heart goes out to everyone effected by the terrible flooding out your way, thats very scary for sure,

I've seen your hands naked. I think I'm going to have the vapors.

Glad you had such fun. Waffles sound delicious.

It is a joy to meet fellow bloggers I have had the good fortune to meet two blogger buddies and hope for more opportunities.
Ham and cheese waffle? How decadent.
I would like to say I was not shocked by your naked hands, but dear goddess, please no naked feet!

Francie M said...

I knew the bare naked hands would cause a lot of shock out there Debra, but I felt I owed it to your reading public. It was a great btunch, good food, good people - who could ask for more?? Lovely meeting you, your Rare One and Lois!

I have to go check out their blogs.

I'm still aghast at the sight of your nekked hands. You know nudity is not allowed unless you put up that warning.
