Mary ConleyDear friends,

Here is an unusual post! We bloggers try to encourage one another, and about a year ago, I discovered that Nebraska Dave and I live in the same city. He is a blogger for Capper's Farmer's sister magazine, GRIT, and we finally managed to become acquainted over lunch this week.

Dave is a generous and delightful man, which we already knew, not only from reading his blog, but the fact that he often makes encouraging comments below other bloggers’ posts, including those of us on Capper’s Farmer. I know I always appreciate his comments. I thought you might like to see us together.


Nebraska Dave, Old Dog New Tricks, and Larry, my husband and unpaid editor. I did double his salary this year!

Mary, you are very kind. I'm actually just an old farm boy that happened to end up in the urban city. It was indeed a very enjoyable time together. It's great to meet other bloggers in person. Blogs just don't give out the tone of the voice the sound of a laugh or facial expressions. I got the privilege of hearing and seeing those things from both you and Larry. I had a great time and hope it will happen again some time. Have a great warm Spring day.
