Well, Dave and I just parted ways after about a 22 hour visit.  What a
wonderful time!  He called me yesterday that he was about 4 hours out
and would be at our truck stop between 3 and 4 so we planned for me to
come meet him about 5 to take him to dinner.  Of course, on the way to
dinner we detoured into Michael's and both did a little
damage...hehehe...

We didn't buy a whole lot, but one of my clients is going to a
convention this week and wanted the big round buttons (like we used to
see at election time) and of course she leaves tommorrow for convention
and there was no time to order anything online since I still have to
print what will go on them too.

We had dinner at Golden Corral and it was reaaally good.  They even had
filet minon (sp) on the buffet and it was very good!  We sat and talked
and sat and talked and talked some more until the restaurant was
closed.  The employees already had most of the food cleared away by the
time we mosied out of there.

This morning when I picked Dave up, our focus was on checking out
ARCHIVER'S in Orland Park.  Last night I called my sister who is a
regular over there and she and my niece met us...at the Joanne's next
door.  We said 10am at Archiver's and since we were early getting
there, we ducked into Joanne's first.  That was the first Joanne's that
I had been in that had a scrapping section.  The one here is an older
one with basically fabric and fabric crafts in it.  I will definately
go back there!!  Joanne's is on the end of the strip mall and
Archiver's is a few stores in...can we say WOW!!  I could have really
done some wallet damage!  But, I was good because I haven't done
anything in awhile, so I need to take inventory...what I have, want and
need...  It was pretty cool seeing the variety of new stuff that is out
there though!

We had an awesome time talking and chatting and just spending time
together.  Yes, there was some enabling and some comparing and some
tales.  Dave is always a joy to have around and I love it when he
visits.  Before we left the truck stop this morning, Dave gave me this
heavenly scented jar candle...yumm!  It will definately be allowed to
"breathe" in my room.  :-)

Yes, we have pictures...  We both had our cameras and we took a couple
of pictures to prove that Dave saw an Archivers.  I told him that we'll
have to go back again and see the other 1/2 of the store!  (We didn't
see everything because of time.)  My pictures can be seen at
http://photos.yahoo.com/trlockwood in the "RCS Meets" folder.

Hope y'all get to meet and/or visit with Dave...you'll be soul enriched
for the experience.

Sounds like you had a great time.........that would be my problem....trying
to be good in a scrapbook store.
I drove to Evansville today with youngest DD and DS, met older DS, grandson
and fiancee to play minature golf. Also picked up sixty 16" patio tiles from
a freecycle person to bring back home. While I was there I ran into Joann's
and picked up a package of silver brads I needed to complete a recipe swap
I'm working on.
Yes, I ran (hurried) in and grabbed the brads, paid and hurried back out. We
needed to get home before dark to get the tile unloaded from the truck.
Fastest trip into a store with scrappin supplies I believe I've ever made.
