|The aquarium was huge and beautiful|
Left Brain and I arrived early and played the guessing game at each person coming through the door as to whether or not this might be them. He was a bit dismayed at my lack of planning when he found out I had no idea what they looked like. It failed to comfort him when I said "she'll look like a quilter...we tend to find each other in a crowd".
So we admired the decor of Cheddar's while playing the guessing game. Sure enough, in came a couple and the lady had a quilted bag with her. She spotted my handmade purse and the identification process was complete.
David ordered their "stack" of onion rings and they had to be the lightest, crispiest onion rings I've ever had. Sherry was chiding him for not ordering a vegetable with his meal and he pointed out that onions were a vegetable. I like this man's logic.
We had the most enjoyable lunch talking and getting to know each other during our meal. This is my favorite part of RV life... finding treasures on the road, whether they be scenery, a great meal or interesting people.
After lunch we went to the Chattanooga Quilts where Sherry meets her customers for her long arm quilting business. I didn't make any purchase, which shocked Left Brain.
The shop was charming, but it just wasn't the kind of fabrics I was looking for. My tastes run more towards goofy novelty fabrics and this place was much too refined. But Sherry did give me one of her bright yellow bags that she provides to her customers. I can always use another lightweight bag and it was a thoughtful gift and nice memento to have of our visit.
Long Live the Queen of Making Friends on the Road
