Good Morning Megan,
Such a joy meeting you this morning in the Golden Corral parking lot — My hubby (Earl) and I are here to celebrate our 45th high school reunion – We met in the 9th grade and after 44 years of marriage it’s great to see old friends and family this weekend. When this book is published I want a signed copy — “Marjorie”
Hugs and blessings to you and may Our Lord Bless You.
Earl & Marjorie

Truly a random visit!
I was man-ing a community garage sale booth (I am trying to declutter my life so I can focus on what really matters — family, book projects, and art, plus I am bit of a hoarder as you must know I have all my journals) at the Golden Corral this morning and a couple perused the lone three parking lot booths. They smiled and walked towards the big grey RV that was parked at the end of the parking lot. I had noticed the RV as I have many of my own memories of traveling in an RV as a child. We spent many summers in our RV traveling.
I said hello and asked them if it was their RV. I struck up a conversation with the couple and learned they were back in town for their 45th high school reunion. They met when in the 9th grade and still are clearly in love. Earl told me he went to Northwestern and majored in mechanical engineering. Marjorie shared she grew up on a farm in Eastern North Carolina. People are so darn interesting. That is my favorite part of the journal as it is a way to meet people and talk to strangers. I asked them to sign the journal and explained the three rules. Marjorie paged through the book and commented she liked the yellow butterfly. And that is the page she signed on, as did Earl.
Everyone has a story! What’s your’s?
