|Me and Anne Marie of Philly (in my Spo Shirt)|
I met Anne Marie on this summer Saturday morning in the heart of downtown Lewes in front of Cafe Azafran. She was in the Washington D. C. area this weekend on business decided to meet up with some of her blogger friends. That would be me and Mark of "Tales of the Sissy." She is the houseguest of Mark and Joe this weekend. Mark had an appointment this morning from his new job as a real estate agent par excellence. Joe had some personal chores to attend to. Thus Anne Marie had the morning free and suggested that we meet.
We were to meet for brunch but Anne Marie was still full from the dinner that Joe and Mark took her too at Saketumi last night. Mark sure does love Saketumi. He writes about this new Japanese restaurant all the time in his blog. I'll have to check it out. I'm not a seafood or sushi person but maybe I can get a hamburger. Maybe not.
I wasn't hungry either for a brunch so I suggested that I take Anne Marie on a mini-tour of Milton and along the way take her to Casa Tipton-Kelly. She would be one of the few people to actually meet in person my spouse, The Bill.

We drove back to my home and we had a wonderful visit with Bill. Anne Marie loved the cool breezes and peaceful quiet of our back deck. Then I had a great idea, why not call Dr. Spo on my iPhone via FacetTime? Anne Marie has never talked to him face to face so I thought this would be a fun thing to do. I called Dr. Spo, and the dear, sweet man was home!

Anne Marie had a delightful conversation with Dr. Spo. I could tell she was thrilled as a schoolgirl meeting to her First Crush. Dr. Spo was so sweet to take time out of his busy morning to talk to us. He is such a delightful man.
I heard Anne Marie mention that she is still waiting her turn on receiving the Traveling Spo Shirt. Then I had another great idea (two in one day! What are the odds?) I brought out my very own Spo Shirt. Anne Marie was thrilled!

Then of course I had to bring out my camera. You know me; Record the event with pictures, pictures and more pictures.
I noticed the clock was ticking and we only had about a half an hour left before I had to return Cinderella to Mark and Joe, they're going to a party tonight (my invitation must of gotten lost in the mail). But before we left, I wanted to take this opportunity while she was in the area and take her on a tour of Milton and show her what a delightful town it is. Milton was a dying town about ten years ago until

I drove Anne Marie around Milton on a quickie tour, making a quick stop at the Dogfish Brewery to take her picture for her husband, who is a Dogfish beer fan.
Then Anne Marie remembered her meter where she parked her car had
I put the pedal to the metal and zipped her down to Lewes (without exceeding the speed limit, another source of revenue for the local authorities) and got her to the tennis courts parking lot in Lewes and viola! NO TICKET! You dodged one there Anne Marie.
Have a safe trip home Anne Marie of Philly!
