I first met Liz-Laughs-a-Lot in the Gender in Higher Education course, offered by Dilley during the summer session 2009. She was coughing, coughing, coughing from a nasty summer cold, and I casually passed a cough drop to her from one side of the room all the way to the other, using the person-to-person method---we were sitting in a circle. It's quite the humorous "how we met" story IMHO (in my humble opinion).
Since then, she and her hubs have attended our Festivus gatherings, and we've attended her New Years and Halloween gatherings. Dinner at Midland, hanging with mutual friends, wineries, oh! so.many.happy.Liz.memories.
Needless to say, Liz is lovely...meet her, love her, hang with her....it'll be an awesome time!
