Sam Ion

While in the Yukon this summer, one of the women in our group was a journalist from....Brantford. Sam Ion has been writing for ages - I used to read her Advice to the Working Woman column in the Hamilton Spectator when I was a teenager. I believed I would one day be a Working Woman, and would no doubt be in need of her advice.

When I met her, I did this stupid little squeal and hugged her. Thank god Sam Ion has a sense of humour. And so does her husband, Tom. They were married 30 years ago, divorced, had a few other spouses thrown in there, and remarried last year. It's a long, cool, screwed up story. But if you meet them, you'll know it works. They are crazy, in the best sense of the word.

Anyway. Sam is a total hoot. Melissa and I adored her. She writes travel features. Tom sent me her latest, and no word of a lie, I have never, ever enjoyed a travel review more. I am still laughing so hard as I type this, it may take me a moment to link it for you.

Okay, here
. Picture this little firecracker of a dame with a daughter nearly my age, and let me know what you think.

I really expected others would have posted long before me...

I, too, have read Sam for many years. Never met the woman so until Lorraine's words, was really none the wiser.

And then this.

Now I'm not at all sure what to think -- about her. Sam, not Lorraine, that is,
