Meeting my blogger friends

I met Shelley (left) and Betsy (right) yesterday. And George and Gregg, but they aren't in the pictures. They were behind the cameras. Shelley is looking at one of the other cameras. George and Greg were snapping away, we didn't know which direction to look. They kept us busy for a short time with the cameras, then it was our turn.
Once Shelley, Betsy and I started talking we didn't hush. Took one good breath about 3 hours into the visit. And we all laughed at the 1 second of silence. All you bloggers must have had HOT ears mid day on Friday, because none of you were left out of the conversation. Greg and George were so sweet not to get impatient with us 3 girls.
It was a blast, it was as George said, "Meeting Old Friends For The First Time". That was exactly what it was. When I left it was like when I meet an old friend for lunch, and I think of the things I wanted to say, but forgot. I think we could have met for a early breakfast and still been talking at a late supper, and still not run out of something to say.
It was great and I would recommend trying to meet some of your best blogging buddies. Would love to meet more of you, remember I am just one exit away from the Gatlinburg/Sevierville exit off I-40. The exit to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, so if you are ever in the area please let me know.
Jen, I received your hug from Shelley!

You girls and guys had a blast and we all envy you getting to meet! We assume you only had good things to say about us, so our ears aren't burning too badly :-)

Hi Leedra,
I haven't been here since I got back from my daughter's. It's nice to 'meet' you. Putting a face with the name is awesome. Sure looks like you had a great time.
I've scrolled down quite far and found your Grandbaby.
My Granddaughter beat him into the world by just a few days. She was born on April 29th at 7lbs.9oz. and not quite 20 inches.
I hope to be visiting more regularly now.

Susie said...

How nice that y'all got to meet. Looks like a great time was had!

Connie said...

That sounded like so much fun! What a treat for all of you.
