Last week MY Dad had a visitor where he works - she was there to do some disaster preparedness classes with them (what they would do if there was a tornado, earthquake, fire etc) Well it turns our she was an Aussie like MY Mom - but not only that she moved to Australia from England (like my Mom) when she was 5 years old (like my Mom) and lived in Melbourne (like my Mom) - her father was a metal machinist (like my Mom's Dad was) and his company had transferred them to Australia (just like my Mom's Dad's company had too!!!!)
Mom and Dad invited Catherine to dinner at MY house and I loved her...she sounded oddly familiar to me and she just ADORED me :) Dweeb of coarse hid the whole time but that was okay - it just meant I got ALL the attention. Catherine and her husband live in Los Angeles and we sure did enjoy having her over for dinner. Here she is checking out MY blog - which she thought was totally awesome. Catherine has two furabies herself so I knew she was special - she has golden retrievers and she says they and her husband are best part of coming home - because she travels a lot with her job :)
Oh wow, thats sum list of coincidences.ReplyDelete
