A wonderful time in Lexington

Hello out there. While in Kentucky we got to meet some bloggers. On the last day we passed Man-o-war Boulevard and some castle to meet with the Great Ora and Mixon in Lexington. WE pulled into the WAl Mart parkinglot. Mixon and Ora pulled up and we did a lot of hugging. It was great to meet them. WE only get to see Mixon, who is a retired Chaplain, sitting at his computer table. We got to see the desk and their place. Mixon is a great handy man and had made a great addition to the house and the Garage. WE did get to talk about 'inspectors'. That is builders favorite subject. HA!
They too came into our Motor home for a visit here we are sitting on the couch in our living room. I uploaded a few more pictures but the system has died three times. I am afraid I am getting nothing up if I don't quit.
We had a super time and it was such a joy to converse with Ora about her implant. I figure soon I will have to make the decision. It is hard to express the feelings of finally meeting folks we feel like we know. Ora and Mixon are a super couple and made us feel at home. We drove away with a shopping bag full of books.
I got to meet Max for a mnute before he was banished. I never did see Pickle.
Take care, I am going to try to get this on Blogger.

How exciting to meet people you blog with.
You have a good 2 days of having fun meeting
bloggers. Glad you are back in NC. The rain
is suppose to stop tomorrow and be back in the 70's thank goodness.

I'm so happy for all of you that you were able to meet in person and you enjoyed your time spent with Ora & her husband. It really is hard to describe the feeling you have when meeting blogging friends face to face for the first time.I know I will always cherish the memories of meeting you & Sherry.

I'm glad you guys enjoyed your visit to KY and you had a safe trip home. I hope you didn't have to drive in rain all the way home, it's been raining here all day and it looks like we have heavier rain moving in for tonight.

Love ya'll
Debbie

Nothing in the world like seeing the smiles on
the faces of friends, you two had some great
opportunities to do that, and I know those folk
in NC are happy you're back!
