Had a very interesting visit from new friends from NYC this afternoon. Theodore and Juliana are making their way toward LA and popped in for the tour. Lately, when folks have asked about visiting TFL and if I need anything - I have suggested a plant for my greenhouse. Today's visitors scored extra brownie points for bringing me a lime tree. I had a great time with them and Ben was well behaved for an up close meet'n'greet. One problem I have discovered with my new camera is that if there is no memory card in it and I only use the viewfinder when shooting - it will act just like it is taking pictures when in fact it only just sounds like it is. That being said, I thought I shot several pictures of the two of them interacting with Ben....nope. Thankfully, I can share at least one pic of their visit thanks to Facebook.
And now for the rest of the story: As they were getting ready to leave, we confirmed our Facebook contacts. Found Juliana and sent a friend request. Found Theodore and saw that we had a mutual friend. I sent him a friend request and a message asking him if he had actually met our mutual friend because I had dated his sister when I lived in Brooklyn. Turns out he did actually know our mutual friend because he had dated his other sister. Complete strangers just met that only had one degree of "intimate" separation. 50,70,28,0,C,0
