Beth and Ken and the Autumn Visit

My Day With The Riches, Part 2

Let me not to the marriage of true minds admit impediments.

**********************
Two kind and fascinating people picked me up and took me out to breakfast. I had a feta cheese omelette with grits. Grits ! GRITS? This is Pennsylvania not Alabama. But I enjoyed the grits, the omelette and the conversation.

Photographs were taken all around. Ken even got an unsuspecting passer by to take a picture of the three of us.

Then, after hugs, they left for New York City, my old home town, and I climbed the stairs to my lonely attic garret.

Those wonderful people injected a positive spirit into my life. Ken made sure that I made it safely in and out of his car, through every door and across every street. Beth is just as energetic and dynamic as her writing.

It was a great pleasure for me to have them here. They conquered my heart and took it with them. And now I feel very sad because I fear I may never see them again.

I feel for you db. I know how nice it is to welcome some company into my life but I really hate to let them go and to say goodbye. When I read the part about your climbing the stairs to your lonely attic garret it made me very sad. Been there and done that and it does hurt a lot. But on the brighter side, you got to meet two very lovely friends and spend some time with them. Your life is all that much richer for having done so. Keep those memories warm and close to your heart. Never say never.

As Ken and Pacifica said, Never say never! We DO get around a bit, and with several friends in the area, this will be far from our last time here. You would ALWAYS be on our list of people to see!

I will get the pictures edited and sent to you ASAP.

Much love and many hugs,
Beth

P.S. The grits were delicious! :)

Dear Dana,

It sounds like Ken and Beth had just as much fun as you did. I am happy you had that time together.
