Back in the early 80’s I met Sandy. I wrote a blog post about her here when I made a quilt for her.
I have not seen her in 30 years. Funny how all these 30 year things are surfacing on the blog — my Norman tape and now, Sandy.
She now lives just 2-1/2 hours from here and we’ve made plans several times to meet and something has always happened and we didn’t get to meet. I have never met her husband; she has never met Vince, Vince has never met her. She contacted me about a week ago and said they were going to be passing right near us and wanted to know if we could get together. She would meet Vince, I would meet Johnny. I said . . sure, y’all are welcome here any time. It turns out that they have a pretty long road trip Monday and will be here Monday evening so they’re going to have dinner with us, spend the night, spend the day Tuesday and leave early Tuesday evening to drive home.
I warned her . . my housekeeping hasn’t improved since you saw me 30 years ago but I’m still busy cleaning house, washing sheets, scrubbing down things that need scrubbing down.
I am so looking forward to our visit! I think Vince is even looking forward to it. He’s taking off work Monday and Tuesday so it should be a great visit with the four of us!
