I found an old friend on Facebook. Michael Miller. He and I worked together in a restaurant in the 80's. Then he became the room mate of my two best friends.
Oh, the fun back then. The dinner parties and bottles of wine... The beach days.
Later, he moved to Lanikai beach and we had get togethers over there. One time we all rented kayaks and paddled out to the Mokes. Had a picnic.
Wonderful, adventurous, fun-filled days. Before careers and families and mortgages....
Mike is also a wonderful craftsman and artist. He used to collect beach glass and make amazing earrings and beach glass mosaics to hang in the window.
Mike moved to Maui years ago and managed an art gallery over there. Then, sometime ago, he moved back to Ohio to help care for his aging parents.
I've never been to Ohio, but two of my long time blog buds live there.
Jan from the Sushi Bar. She is wise, wise-mouthed, witty, and a wonderful cook who knows more about food and sustainability than anyone else I know. She is also about to come out with a cookbook - how awesome is that?
Kristin Hoffman. An adorable twenty something and most excellent writer. Also, I think, the very first blogger I ever left a comment on.
Both of these lovely ladies have contributed to TTT before.
Mike has a consignment store in Tipp City. Crossroad Consignments, which you can also find on Facebook.
If you travel in his neck of the woods, please go pay him and his store a visit!
Mike says wonderful things about Tipp City....

Oh! Just realized this post will go up on Thanksgiving. A most Happy Thanksgiving to all. One thing I am most grateful for is the world of blog and all the friendships I have made out here.
