A Blind Date for Dinner!

----

I posted onto the Quiltville Friends page on facebook last evening :

 “With no car or other transportation I am debating whether it is worth the cold walk across the street to Panda Express. Wish there was someone to join me!” 

With no thought that someone who was actually in the vicinity would actually be online at the same time I was and make me an offer I couldn’t refuse!

Lynn was only a couple miles away – and met me at the front door of the hotel in 10 minutes flat – and we were off!

Turns out that Lynn was also a former student, taking my classes when I taught at Road to California a couple years ago, and it was fun to reconnect!  She didn’t live here at the time ---she is a recent transplant to Prescott, so that was another kind of Kismet.

Upon her suggestion we ended up at the Prescott Brewing company, prefering something LOCAL over something chain-store that I could get anywhere ---and I got a glimpse of the beautiful Christmas lights that are still on all around the courthouse square:

All lit up!

We were seated near the window ---and there was something about the backwards brewery sign and the reflection of the court house square lights display outside that made me just HAVE to take this wonky shot:

Thanks, Lynn for being so willing to be my “Drive By Dinner Date” for the evening!

It’s nice to have friends just about EVERYWHERE!

It really is a small world but our quilting world is HUGE! We are so lucky to be a part of this family of friends and partners in crime - lol.

So glad that Lynn saw your post and was able to snag you for dinner - you are truly blessed!

It really is a small world. I am a California girl who almost relocated to Prescott some time back, but stayed put because of the kids and grandkids. Your pictures of the area - Jerome, the town center, and the "brewing" company brought back a whole lot of memories. If my memories are further correct, there was one quilt store in town, but felt I had enough of a stash to last a life time. Glad you connected with a Calif gal for dinner.
