You can get anything you want at ....

Williamson's Restaurant in New Lenox, Illinois. That's where Maggie from Maggie's Mind, and her Dad, Bill, had dinner with me, and SWMBO and #3 Son.

There was much hugging and conversation and food and everyone had a REAL GOOD TIME.

I took a couple of pictures and Maggie took one or two, so we should be able to provide documentary proof of our evening out - but for me, anyway, I won't do pictures until tomorrow, because I want to be able to include today's activities, as well.

Maggie is as cute as a button and smart and extroverted and I just love her. She talked to #3 Son, who is going to major in Japanese in college, about her experiences in Japan as a member of the JET (Japanese English Teacher) exchange program. And he was as responsive and involved in the conversation with her as I have ever seen him.

Maggie is absolutely charming, and SWMBO just loves her too.

Today, Employee No. 3699 (another of those cute as a button women) and I are headed north to meet with Cat from Wait.What? to have lunch.

I'll let you know what happens.

And to all of you - each and every one of you - Happy Valentine's Day.

Do you know what my husband said last night?
"So when does he come to Belgium then?"
