A blogger meet-up with Spadoman of Round Circle!
The very best benefit of blogging is the relationships we make with wonderful people we never even get to meet. Well, almost never! Last month I had one of those best-of-all-experiences: a blogger meet-up! Spadoman of "Round Circle" stopped in for a visit in El Paso...and then returned the following week with his wife. Very cool.
Peace activists from way back, the Spadomans joined us on the peace corner where we meet a dozen or so others each Friday at a vigil for peace from noon until 1 PM. The Spadomans are Wisconsonites--fellow Midwesterners--and we hit it off famously (as I fully expected we would).
Spadoman joined Mr. B.E. and I for lunch on the first of his visits. For the second visit, the activist community all met up at the Tejas Cafe for lunch together and a chance to meet and greet. It is a distinguished group, of a sort (they would never claim any distinctions) with many of them resisters of brutal dictators in Latin American countries and of the military-industrial complex here in the good ol' U.S.of A. Mr. and Mrs. Spadoman fit right in!
If you're reading this post, consider yourself invited. And--Mr. & Mrs. Spadoman: you're definitely invited back again next year! :)
