"I just returned from the Martha's Vineyard Fiber Festival. I went with a friend of mine from college, and while on the ferry over to the island, we couldn't help but notice a good-looking (Brazilian, it turns out) bunch of guys in motorcycle gear having a great time. I passed by on my way to get a coffee, just as one was taking a photo of the others. I offered to take a photo of all of them - as I always do - and did and thought nothing more of it - other than to lament to my friend that 15 or 20 years earlier, all those guys would have been swarming our table, chatting us up. Oh well, we thought, c'est la vie.

We got off the boat and were trying to decide how to get over to the festival: bicycle? moped? hitch? as we walked by the group, now with their motorcycles, waiting for another of their friends to join them. They motioned us over to ask where they should go on the island, and as I gave them advice, somehow it was suggested that we'd get some helmets and show them where to go. If I hadn't been with that particular friend, it probably wouldn't have happened - we tend to encourage one another's goofier sides - but there we were, on a gorgeous day, riding all over the Vineyard hanging onto to a couple of handsome Brazilian guys! Come on - what could we do? It wouldn't have been a good story unless we'd actually done it! We eventually even made it to the Fiber Festival - with our drivers no less! As I told my friends when I got back - BEST FIBER FESTIVAL EVER! See you in Maryland!"

Congrats Beverly! I'll be emailing you for your address.
