    A nice surprise

    As I was outside of L’ardoise taking pictures a lady who had been eating inside came up to me and said:”are you Andy?” After I checked for weapons I said “yes”. She said she recognized me from the website. Her name is Ann from near St Louis and she checks the website often but doesn’t post much. We chatted a bit and I realized that our posts are read by a variety of people most of whom we never meet. I told her how nice it was to meet her and she waved to her husband inside the restaurant confirming that it was me. Maybe it was the Villanova cap I was wearing. But it was a very nice interlude by a very nice lady. Thanks Ann.

    I did that to Tim once, 20010ish along the quay. I've always been a little embarrassed.

    That's exactly how I met Phil and Amy, too!

    ...and they've not been the same since.
