I was in Toronto last week, visiting my sister. This was the first time I've managed to schedule a visit to coincide with the Royal Winter Fair (yay!) so bought tickets with a few friends and my horse-crazed niece. We get settled into our seats, and then the occupants of the neighbouring seats arrive. I glance over, and think "I think I recognize her". I decide to take the plunge with the awkward "Do I know you from the internet?" question. Yes! It is DJR and her daughter!! What a great coincidence. Even better, since I was already planning to contact Deanna about barns and trainers before my impending move to back to Ontario. She was, not unexpectedly, as friendly in person as she is here.
The Royal was great fun, especially with a 12-year-old bouncing in her seat exclaiming "so exciting! so exciting! so exciting!". I got some serious auntie points.

It was SO COOL to meet you at the Royal!!!! Such a small world. I'm very happy that you introduced yourself, and very impressed that you recognized me based on photos (I suck at doing that myself!!).
formerly known as "Deanna" on UDBB -- and prior to that, as "DJD".
