Meeting Liz (Deas). Lucky me!

One of the most rewarding things I have done in my life is joining Weight Watchers...umpteen years ago. Oh sure, the principles of WW have helped me over the years as I have struggled to be a healthier me. I can count "points" with the best of them. But, this is not why it is so rewarding.

As part of the WW regimen, they offer an on-line community where fellow WW can get together and discuss "stuff". I love it. You may remember my trip to Boston to participate in the Komen Race For the Cure. That was my GDT (General Daily Thread) team who got together through the WW boards. I have written about it before. I have "met" over a hundred new friends on line. I have also met many of them face to face. Not even one of them was WACK-O (okay, maybe one!).

One of my favorite pals on the WW boards is Liz. She lives in Calgary, Canada. She is one of those people who will keep you laughing and laughing. She's quick and witty...which I LOVE. She sent me a care package when I had my surgeries not too long ago. She sent my little first grade ducklings many box tops (I'm obsessed with collecting them) and she also sent a large package for my students full of stickers, flags, memo pads, candy (for me), and a couple of more things. See?? Isn't she great?

Well, while in Calgary last week, I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Liz and her lovely daughter Keelin. Wow! Wow! Wow! I adore them. We went to an East Indian restaurant called "Nirvana". Holy cow! It was delicious. We had fabulous conversation. Once again, Liz brought me Canadian candy bars PLUS, there was some sneaking going on when she left the table to go to the "washroom" whereupon she paid the entire bill. Man, I love her.

Thanks again Deas! It will always be a wonderful memory.

Liz and Me

And of course...the food!
