From the Small World Department....
Georgie brought me Chung's for dinner. Translation: he brought me P.F. Chang's, one of our favorites, but he calls it Chung's. Not in any kind of derogatory way but just because Georgie can't call anything by it's real name. Like Northwest Airlines is Northworst. Wal-Mart is Wal-Fart. Home Depot is always referred to as Deepott (long e, hard t). You get the picture.
We're sitting at the table, enjoying our Mongoloian Beef and Pork Lo Mein (a special Chanukah treat - sorry Mom!) and G says, "I had a nice email from Kate today." I say, "That's nice," while sneaking some extra beef on my plate. He says, "Have you ever heard of the Hifer, Heffer organization." I say, "Heifer International?" He says, "Yeah. That." I say, "I gave them money last week. It's a knitblogger thing." "That's funny," he says. "Kate's grandfather, Dan West, started it. She told me she was in Ecuador helping out."
So there you have it folks. It's a small, small world. Don't forget to donate!

Small world! Dan West used to be a member of my church's congregation.
