|Me, Joshua, Jacob and Mark Himes today at the Brickside Grill, Eagleview, PA|
Today I met my first blogger friend face to face. Mark H. of "Our Simple Lives...a Daddy, a Papa and their four children... took a ride from his Harrisburg, Pennsylvania home to meet me and my partner Bill at our former home outside of Downingtown, Pennsylvania. Mark also brought his two twin sons, Jacob and Joshua. Bill and I traveled up from southern Delaware to our former home in Downingtown, PA.

The meeting was a great success! Everybody clicked, even Bill is notoriously solo. Mark's kids took to Bill as all kids take to Bill, which was immediate. Pretty soon they will be calling him "Uncle Bill."

I took Mark on a tour of our former 'estate' (which now resembles a 'Gray Gardens' since the previous owners defaulted on their mortgage but that is a story for another blog posting).

Today was nothing but positive. The kids had a great time running around the seven acres of woodland. I took Mark on a tour of our former grounds. Then we all went to lunch at the Brickside Grill in Eagleview which....can you believe it?!...had a magican there today to entertain the kids!
