We were having lunch yesterday at a Richmond cafe when two strangers asked to sit on the couch across the table from us. We had a lovely conversation about their visit two Virginia. They were a retired German couple who traveled by ship to the US to bike from Maine to Florida. Their whole trip was from Europe and back was going to take about 12 weeks. They had done a biking trip in Europe every summer for about 25 years. The Daughter and were pretty amazed and (she especially) pelted them with all sorts of questions.

My mother would have done the same. No one was ever a stranger to her for very long.
