the Irish are the cutest people on earth: an international blogging incident
We drove down to suburban NY yesterday to meet Louise and Benny and have an engagement party, but not just any engagement party. They are from Ireland, and none of us had ever met for real (well, we have met Gord from Canada and his wife, and Kate and Jim visited us here a couple of years ago).
You see, for several years we have all read the blog Old Grey Poet from Great Britain, exchanged comments and blogs and even gifts...and thanks to that single common thread, now we have all met up.
No axe murderers amongst us, and we are all as we might have imagined, except you pretty much want the young Irish couple to just sit there and TALK :)
In other news, Jacques Le Soq, Georges cousin, flew in from France, but you know how the French get at parties, sorta eating everything in sight and drinking all the wine and arguing existentialism...
(Back row--Benny, Bridget Campbell, Kate and Jim our hosts, front--Louise, Gord Campbell, My Missus, me and a kitteh----Georges le Soq and Jacques Le Soq were in the kitchen finishing the cookies)
