She got out at Philadelphia, and after that I called mashfanficchick's mother and asked if we were still on for her picking me up, and she said yes and she'd call me when she got to Penn to arrange to meet.
After that I called the FWiB, and we talked from there to almost Penn, which was nice. At Penn, just as I was getting out of the train, mashfanficchick's mother called, and I said I had arrived and she said she had too, and we arranged whereto meet.
We met up, and she had MJ with her. We went back to Queens and picked up mashfanficchick and the four of us went to a Chinese takeout place near me for dinner. It was pretty good.
Came home, and all is fine with the cats and turtle.
So a splendid weekend was had, and I am so glad I went.
