Lunch with John and Nancy: police presence really not all that necessary

Nancy Amerman, Griff Wigley, John GeorgeIt’s not often I get treated to a meal with my LoGro hat on, but it happened yesterday. My beneficiaries: regular commenter and resident punster John George; and Nancy Amerman, an occasional object of my blog spoofs.  We ate at the HideAway Coffeehouse & Winebar.

John and Nancy are members of Transformation Northfield and Nancy is a member of Rejoice! Church.  Both organizations have been the subject of, um, my critical attention here on LoGro (TN tags here, Rejoice! tags here).

Was I worried?

And how did he know we’d be there? Was he following me on Foursquare? Tracking my tweets? Does he know where I live?

As it turned out, we didn’t even talk religion so violence wasn’t an issue.  We kept to non-controversial topics, like politics.  We had fun, as you can see. So no worries. Move along now. Nothing to see here.

  1. Griff- I’m beginning to sense a common thread very time you blog about getting together with me, but I just can’t quite put my finger on it!
