One is Silver and the Other's Gold

When I was a Brownie (think miniature Girl Scout) we sang a little song in a round. It went as follows:
Make new firends but keep the old, one is silver and the other's gold.
David McMahon is one of many new friends I have met via my blog. A few days ago, I was asked by an old friend how I met David McMahon. Actually, I think the question was more precisely worded, "How did you find that blog guy from Australia that wrote a novel and always comments on your blog."
I immediately recalled, our first meeting on David's blog. Above is the riveting picture he posted and below is the text:
Morning Has Broken
Cloudy Day Starts In A Riot Of Colour
It's a slightly cooler day today, about 25 Celsius, with some rain forecast. And though it's grey and overcast and humid, here's proof that the day started as if someone had mixed the most vibrant colours and daubed them over the sky. The spire is the Arts Centre, which served as a terrific silhouette to offset the shades in the sky.
Looks like Autumn in Melbourne is getting off to a beautiful start! Spring in Utah is struggling to find its way.
David, in true David fashion replied:
Thanks for dropping by and leaving a link to a very interesting blogpost.
I've left a comment on your blog. Do keep me updated on your progress and even though I'm busy wrapping up another novel, I've always got time for fellow writers and bloggers.
