Wow... just wow

Do you know how cool it is to make a friend through
our blogworld? Not only admiring the work they
do on their blog and leaving meaningful praise and snide
private jokes in each other's comment box, but gazillions
of emails exchanged for months on end?
Getting to know pretty much their entire life story...
and, they yours? Yeah, like that.
You mention many times that you hope someday to meet
in person, but reality tells you the chance is probably slim.
But...
sometimes you do get the chance to meet and that blog friend is
really the same (even better) in person as you have been
imagining all those months, well... wow... just wow.

Sunday was a wonderful day. I got to meet Aspergantus and
Mrs. Aspergantus in person.
We met for lunch at a great little restaurant on the beach...
Snack Jack's. Great food, great service, great view.

But, it was the company that made the day. Wonderful people.
Fun, funny, uber-smart, talented and simply all other kinds of good.
Sweet.
This needs to be repeated, many times, on a regular basis. Please.

Mick and Pat, thank you so much!


Photos are still in the disposable camera.
I'll try to post them tomorrow night.

Yeah! I love it when you get to meet people and you just "click".

Next time, we need photos posted though. ;)

It's great to meet online friends in real life. I hope to as well.

I haven't had it happen yet but I know it will. I should at least cross the bridge to meet Cuppa and Anvil.

Some day it might be me and you!
