I got to town a day before the big DATE DAY. Patty picked me up on her way to her company picnic. The entire office was divided into 4 teams all dressed in separate colors... Patty's crew was green and they were fired up.

Before I knew it 5 wonderful days had passed. Despite having a myriad of commonalities, there was one BIG deal breaker. Plus we live in different countries... She lives in VAN, while I live in a van down by the river. I took an early bus back to Seattle with the intention of coming back to visit and the hopes of seeing Tamar either in Portland or Seattle later in the summer.
a few days later, I got this picture from her....
|we clearly missed each other.|
