A Trip to Chicago



I went to Chicago today. My main mission was to meet Franklin for a little stealth project. My secondary goal was to meet Marcy, aka mittenfarce. Here they are together at Arcadia Knitting. It was a perfect day. Even the time I spent crawling in construction-related traffic was perfect. Maybe you need to be a parent to understand that part. When I get to take a long drive alone and listen uninterrupted to whatever I like on the radio, it's a good day. And meeting and hanging out with delightful knitters just tops it off. On the way down, I was reflecting on how wonderful Mr SABLE is. His wife announces one day that she's going to drive to Chicago to meet a man from the internet and take pictures of him! And he says, "OK." On the way home, I stopped at a Krispy Kreme on the interstate and bought a dozen donuts to reward my guys for being such great sports.

And now, I'm off to stare at a Sudoku puzzle for a few minutes before I fall asleep.

Husbands like that are worth the moon & the stars. Heck, Hubby didn't even think twice about gearing our whole two-week adventure around meeting a crazy knitting lady from the Internet and her man in Sicily. And he enjoyed it as much as I did!

ohh, can't wait to see. Isn't Franklin quiet and almost shy? He was so nice to talk to when I met him a few weeks ago. He has such a wicked sense of humor, I didn't expect him to be so (dare I say it?) gentle. I guess that is where the true word gentelman comes from. I assume you accomplished your mission?

Wow, sounds like you had a lovely time! Yay for moments "alone"! :)

Let's hear a round of applause for Mr SABLE and understanding hubbies who support our knitting habits.

It sounds like a fun day.

Marcy said...

Thank your DH for me too. It was nice to meet you finally.
