Photo a Day: 16th February: {On Seeing Mel}

We interrupt the normal posting on this blog to bring you a news update.

This morning, Ruth met Mel of I Speak Melsh fame for coffee and she is delighted to report that Mel is very much in the land of the living.  Photographing Mel with today's newspaper was inspired and should reassure one and all.  Ruth and Mel spent about an hour and a half together, long enough for 2 coffees each.  Ruth was able to pass on all the good wishes from mutual blog friends and Mel was able to extend her heartfelt thanks to all who have been worried about her.
Please pass word of this post to anyone who may read Mel's blog, but not necessarily this one.
Thank you.
Normal blog posting resumes shortly.

Oh, thank you for the update - I have been wondering how Mel is getting on. Didn't like to disturb her, since she posted to say she is alright, but it's still nice to have a reassuring update.
If you speak to her again soon, please pass on my best wishes!
Glad you had a nice time drinking your coffees and chatting.

Glad you got to catch up and that Mel is OK.

BTW I hate those new words you have to authenticate now. Even with new glasses I can't read them!!

hmmmm are we really sure this Mel, there is no camera in front of her face?! lol Funny since others have said as much but Mel has popped into my mind every day this week. I keep thinking I must get a card in the mail. So glad to hear all is well and that the two of you had some time to relax and catch up. This new word verification may be the undoing of me @@

oh fortuitious - I was looking at her blog in my reader and wondering about her. Wandered over from Just one sketch and read this. Great idea to take a photo with the newspaper too :)

Being an American I have no way of knowing if that actually *was* today's paper, so I am going to just take your word for it :) Good to see she is indeed alive. :) I have been wondering about her.
