Florida + California = Montana!!

So, when a blogger from Florida (me), meets two bloggers from California, bring along the husbands to celebrate Chris and Pat's 26th anniversary, the fun and laughing never stops.

This is Chris, above picture, from Knitting Mania.

We are eating dinner at a great restaurant in Philipsburg, Montana, The Philipsburg Cafe.

Chris and Pat are slowly building their retirement home in Philipsburg. They come out a couple of months every summer to continue the work. I would guess we'll see a lot of each other each summer. So great getting to know you, Chris.

This is another blogger friend from California, Dustye from Dustye's Kitchen.

Dustye and her husband, Ed, have been friends of Chris and Pat's for quite some time. It's been fun getting to know them as they are spending some time out here in Montana helping Chris and Pat with their new home.

Dustye, I'm sure we'll connect and I am thrilled to have a new friend to place FARKLE with on Facebook.

As you can see, I did not give the guys much of a chance to look up. They were very busy eating this wonderful meal set before us.

So, here we have the three bloggers. Isn't it amazing how the Internet has brought us together? We look forward to getting to know each other better in the future.


  1. What fun! How wonderful to have friends in Montana as well as Florida.

  2. Susan we had such a great time last with you and Dale and the Colligan's. I feel so blessed to have a new bogging buddy, FB friend and of course Farkle! I can't wait to see you next summer. Enjoy the rest of your summer and may you have travel mercy on you long way home. Talk to you soon.
