An Unexpected Visitor

The other day while I was at work, Leif and I had a visitor.

A good visitor, my Geography professor from my community college.

It is not too long ago that I was at community college, 2007 until 2009. I actually completed my AA Degree in 17 months. A lot of work packing in 18 units of school and holding a part-time job while going blind. I must have been crazy! No I am crazy!

The professor got lots of fuss from Leif, who has taken to laying under my desk. I think he has heard something about us living in an earthquake zone. Anyway ...

The professor said that he had recently visited England, not only England but Yorkshire and in particular Harrogate.

I used to love visiting Harrogate, a high point was tea at Betty's Tea Room. So I asked if he had gone to Betty's and he had.

Isn't it nice when you meet someone thousands of miles from home who can say that they know a place you know very well and is so full of happy memories?

So if anyone is planning to be in the Harrogate area, stop by Betty's, have a sip of tea and a Fat Rascal for me, and just look over the park and watch the flowers bloom, or the snowflakes fall.
