On Sunday we decided to go to breakfast at a little local diner. It’s the kind of place where you just come in and grab a table. We arrived at the door, dashing through the rain at the same time as a couple about my parents age, and found that there was just one open table for 4. The gentleman looked over at us and said “Come sit with us!” We said “Why not?”. We had a delightful breakfast, drank many many cups of coffee and ended up all trading business cards and email addresses at the end. When we went to pay, he said “Let me get that. We’ll pretend like we had breakfast with the kids.” (do I hear an “awwww!”)
Then we stopped in a local yarn shop. We were heading to a friend’s house and wanted to take along something to knit, but I had left my knitting at home. Andy came in wearing his “San Jose Museum of Art” shirt which prompted a whole conversation with the yarn shop owners who came from the San Jose area. One was an engineer for Apple Computer in a former life and they had an in depth conference about various Adobe products and what was best for a slide show they are trying to make.
It was a day for meeting new and interesting people for sure.
