I ran into Mona. I recognized her from the photo I took the other day of her standing in front of the Bed and Breakfast. Of the hundreds of photos I have taken, that is one of my top five favorites. I was glad to see her again. It was crowded and so we didn't talk long. She said she lives at that bed and breakfast. If I can find someone who can download that photo into a nice print, I am going to take it to her.
She said she has no good photos of herself. Hasn't had any for twenty years. She said her name is Mona but everyone here calls her Mona Lisa. She said she was at the celebration just to be around people because she was kind of lonely. She has been living here for 35 years and all her friends have either died or left. She is 85 years old. I want to visit with her again and listen to some of her stories about this area. Meeting Mona Lisa was the highlight of my day. Here are a few photos of the celebration. I didn't get a chance to take another one of Mona but I will when I see her again.
