The two of them just looked like they were having a good time, so I had to intervene. Patrick was born in Germany. “You have no accent!” “That's because my dad was in the military, I wasn't there for long.”
Dawn is from Massachusetts, and she has no accent either. She is familiar with Queens, NY, where I was born.
I asked what the highlight of their week was. Dawn said, “Throwing out a couch, and then cleaning the yard and house. It feels good to make room for more stuff.” :-)
They liked my Photostream and the 100 Strangers concept. Dawn is one of those women who just can't 'not smile for the camera.' I finally pulled the camera down for a second and said, “I give up – smile!” That got the (genuine) laugh.
