Linda Medrano, her charming husband, Alex, and their two dogs, Harry and Honey came for a visit it was a lovely surprise.
Not that I was all that worried. I’ve “known” Linda for nearly a year, our paths first crossing on the Divine Caroline website and then continuing to stay in touch as we both dipped our toes into the blogosphere, and then just dove the hell in. Since we live only five hours from each other and neither of us could make it to

They must have known that the way to my heart is through a good bottle of Sangiovese, which we polished off before taking an evening stroll around the lavender field and heading out to the local bistro for dinner.

Linda, a statuesque, platinum-haired hottie and Alex, a Navajo Indian, whose handsome face radiates the most kind and gentle spirit, make a striking couple and when you’re with them the fun truly never ends. Although, you have to watch out for that Linda. I kept catching her sneaking up behind me, trying to snap a picture of my (size 4) ass.

When Linda and Alex arrived, I welcomed them as visitors. When they left, I embraced them as friends. If only my online dating experiences had turned out this well.
