Bloggin' Buddy Meetup -- Francie

In September when I was in Niagara-on-the-Lake for the Shaw Festival, I had the pleasure of meeting up once again with my bloggin' buddy Francie of A North End Journal! We first met in person a couple of years ago when My Rare One and I were visiting nearby Hamilton.

Francie, my theatre buddy and I all went for a lovely dinner at a winery vineyard restaurant. And this time I came prepared for the photo shoot. See? My face is out of the shot but my purple fingerless gloves verify my identity!


Thanks for being such a good sport about all this crazy subterfuge, Francie! It was great to see you again. Vikings rule!

I'm not sure what Vikings you're referring to but Vikings in general are pretty cool. As is getting to meet your fellow bloggers. It'd be a nice thing to do some time.

What! Debs, ya didn't even match the shirt with the colour of the gloves :) You must buy tons of violet stuff, pronto!

Francie M said...

My pleasure! Good food, good friends! And to Debra's readers: she is referring to 'Vikings' the TV series which is too awesome for words. We are both big fans!

Great photo and the gloves are perfect. Now, will you switch out the image you have for your own hands?

I'm really hoping it's vodka in those glasses and not water. :D

Ottawa next on the agenda?

Katy Anders said...

I hope no pics come out with a purple-gloved person committing crimes of some sort. It could spell the end of your blog!

Sybil N said...

Wouldn't it have been fun if everyone turned up wearing those cut off purple gloves an Francie did know who she was meeting with ?

I have met so many wonderful folk in the blog-o-sphere ...glad you guys got together.

Laurent said...

those gloves have a Glenn Gould similarity about them, are you sure you did not steal them from him?
