We had a fantastic time with some fabulous friends yesterday. We manage to see them just about once a year for a few hours (one of these needs to be upped, I think--either more than just once a year, or for more than a few hours). My friend, Bert VeeBman, has known me since just after my high school graduation. He is married to Grammargirl, and they have a 12 year old boy, Marty.
What good folks! They agreed to sit in the shade while the kids played in the water (I didn't know it was 97 degrees, sorry!), and then we got pizza and played games for a while until they had to head out. We had a great time, so let's do it again soon!

Here's Rophone, enjoying the adult interaction (well, we acted like adults most of the time!):
We had a great time! Thanks! We'll make it to your neck of the woods one of these days, I promise!
