Lunch with LG!

Hi Everybody!

(I am sorry I have been away. It's been a crazy week!
I am looking forward to getting back to my regular blogging schedule.)


A while ago, a strange man contacted me via e-mail and asked to meet me in Los Angeles.

Naturally, I said yes.

So last Sunday I got dolled up and followed the instructions this man gave me and I am so glad I did!

Did I mention this man was my delightfully strange and incredibly witty blogging buddy, Lazarus, from the LG Report?


Lazarus and his lovely wife were visiting from Pennsylvania and were gracious enough to meet with me and even treat me to lunch! It was so much fun to meet a blogging buddy. It felt like we were old friends. It reminded me of how wonderful the blogging community is.

(Oh, and his wife is a peach! An absolute peach!)


If you haven't stopped by The LG Report, I suggest you do.

(The restaurant was pretty noisy, but I am pretty sure that at some point in our conversation over lunch, he promised to give all my readers who dropped by $50.00 each.)

How fun! I would love to meet some blog friends. It hasn't happened yet, but I'm sure it will one of these days.

I haven't read LG so I'll be hopping over on your recommendation (and for the $50).

$50? I'm heading right over. I'll be sure to tell him you said it was all right.

Heh, heh. This made me smile.

I wish I had known you were getting together: I would have encouraged you both to talk about me. Someone needs to.

Kisses! XXX OOO

Wonderful! I don't comment on LGs blog a lot but I read all the time. I can imagine it was a very easy lunch, with a lot of laughter. =)

PS - does he talk in 3rd person?

Nicole said...

How wonderful!

Pearl said...

Oh, lucky you!

You know he keeps saying he'll be in Minneapolis some day, but I think he's just pulling my (virtual) leg...

Checked in after reading one of my favorite bloggers, LG. I was hooked on The Matter of the Rings. What a deep and gut-wrenching post that was. I will be back again, for sure. Glad I found you. EFH

So glad you had a good time. I'll check out his blog.

Lazarus said...

Betty my friend, wonderful post, thanks for the shout-out, although you did mis-hear me, I'm sorry to say. What I said was "I can either give all of your followers $50 or I can buy you lunch today, it's your choice..." Oh well, I'm sure they received $50 worth of enjoyment between reading your post and LG's. Mrs. LG and I had a great time, can't wait to see you again!

Daisy said...

What fun! :-D

Hope you have a great weekend, Betty!

Wow - look at you! You look GORGEOUS! I can truthfully say that it's lots of fun to meeting blogging friends. So far I've met 3 and each one was great fun. One will be a friend for life.

Green Monkey said...

Marlene said...

The blogging community really does have some wonderful people in it. I visited your friend's blog and told him I was there to collect the $50. Ha ha ha. Kidding. (But no, I really DID visit his blog.) :) Happy weekend, Bossy Betty!

Hilary said...

Aww what fun. I'm glad you had a great time.. it's always fun to meet online folks.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Betty .. ah ah here's the other Hilary .. that was such a fun post - and how wonderful to meet up and natter about life - bet they were empathetic and down to earth too.

Great fun read and lovely memories - so pleased you're getting out and about .. cheers for now - Hilary

Pat said...

Sounds like a fun time! That is a cute photo of the two of you! And, hey, for $50, I'll be sure to stop by his blog! Ha ha!

Pat Tillett said...

It sounds nice. I've yet to acutally meet a fellow blogger in "real" life...

Lazarus said...

Betts,

One more follow up (and thanks for driving all these people in search of their $50 to The LG Report!). I just hit on the brilliant (and totally obvious) idea of stealing the photo from your blog and substituting it for the one on mine that you didn't like. It's all good now (although I thought you looked great in both anyway...) Thanks again for the shout out, you have some really cool (and devoted) readers. xo, LG :)

Joanna Jenkins said...

It's such a treat when bloggers are just as cool in person as they are on their blog :-)))

Off to say hi to LG.

xo jj

EmptyNester said...

I do read LG and I'm so glad you got to meet him in person AND his wife! Awesome!

And Betty, dahling you look marvelous! Absolutely marvelous!

The Empress said...

Bossy Betty?

I have NEVER seen you look more beautiful.

My manners prevent me from saying, "dang...this woman, available, on the market...she won't last long."

Thank goodness for manners.
