But who's counting? I am!!! Yes, I got to meet my 10th blog friend in real life.

Yes, Dawn is the 10th one I've been blessed to meet since starting this exciting Blogland adventure 2 years and 9 months ago.

Dawn is attending her 40th College reunion in Bethany, OK this week-end. She & I have been talking about this event and meeting for months and it happened yesterday, November 6th.

Bethany is near Oklahoma City and 106 miles from Coweta. I found a spot 1/2 way between, which turned out to be Stroud, OK. Now Stroud is one of those towns, for us, that we drive by the exit signs on the Turnpike to Oklahoma City. It is also a city that a violent tornado hit in 1999 completely destroying an Outlet Shopping Center that was never rebuild.

We were to meet at 1 o'clock at 5 Star Bar-be-que. We got there about 25 minutes early and a yellow "bug" drove in just before us. We're sitting there waiting and Mickey noticed no one had gotten out of the yellow bug so he went over to see if it might be Dawn. Sure enough it was!!!!

Dawn is as vivacious, friendly, fun and talkative in real life as she is on her blog. We had a delightful hour visit and a delicious pulled pork sandwich and salad.

Dawn & I by our HHR,

Dawn & I by the yellow Volkswagen she had rented. She'd always wanted to drive one so this was her chance. Isn't it cute?

It was a beautiful, blue sky day with temps reaching 80 degrees. Dawn had just left a huge snow fall in her home in Colorado.

Dawn will be flying home and then next week she and her husband are flying to Maine where she will be meeting 3 other blog friends. I know you will all enjoy meeting her.

So I have to wonder who will be #11. I surely don't know, but God does and I'll be eagerly awaiting the event.


To the many who have asked, since I haven't posted all week......I am feeling just fine and all is good. Mickey & I have just been EXTREMELY busy this week and I just didn't have the time.

Monday we worked in the Klothes Kloset clothing room at church, putting on the finishing touches.
Judy & Thelma and the additional boxes of blessings that greeted us Monday morning for our final work day of setting up and getting ready.

Tuesday Thelma & I "opened" for the first time. We will be open 2 days a week from 9 to 3. Thelma & I are going to be working on Tuesday and Judy & Linda will be working on Thursday. We are just so pleased with the response we have had with people giving us really NICE clothing items to share with those in needs. We have infant, children & adult clothing for boys & girls and men & woman.

Tuesday night I rushed off to my Bible Study at 6:30. We had Aric both Wednesday & Thursday this week just because he wanted to come another night. Of course Wednesday is Church & Thursday night I had drama practice at church. Friday, after meeting Dawn we dashed home for our Friday night Prayer Meeting. There were 6 of us last night and it was totally AWESOME. God is meeting us in such a powerful time of praise & worship of HIM.

Blessings as you minister through the clothing closet outreach. You are being used by the Lord in so many ways, Susan. We're blessed to see you in action. : )

I think your Klothes Kloset is a great idea. I am wondering if we have something like it here...

Boy, some people have all the fun! Every time I hear from you you're up to all kinds of neat stuff. Sure wish I could be number 11, but there is no way that could happen!
