Meeting Old Friends For The First Time

Leedra, Betsy and Shelley. Cleveland, Tennessee. June 12, 2009.

Yesterday was a very special day for Betsy and me.  We got to meet a couple of our blogging buddies in person!

The picture above shows Betsy with Leedra (left) of Leedra’s Photos For Fun and Shelley of Building A Log Cabin.  We all have been visiting each other’s blog for many months.  Leedra lives here in Tennessee not too far from us, but Shelley lives in Michigan.  Shelley and her husband Greg came down to Chattanooga on business, so a get-together was arranged.  We all met in Cleveland, Tennessee, for brunch.

As soon as we met it was like a gathering of old friends.  We talked, and talked and talked.  I’m sure we ate somewhere along the line, but it was the fellowship that was  most important.

We’re hoping that Shelley and Greg will soon get back to Tennessee when they can stay longer.  Betsy and I are hoping that we can soon get up to Michigan as well.  Shelley and Greg have a beautiful log cabin in northern Michigan and Betsy and I know that there are some beautiful waterfalls up there.

    What fun George, and I love your title….Meeting Old friends for the first time. So cute.
    I hear that the girls did all the talking though….

  2. Betsy Says:

    Thanks Honey for putting up with FOUR hours of girl-talk…. You and Greg sould have gone fishing (NO–not to Hooters!!) while we gabbed…

    Love you Sweetheart,

    That is a cool title – meeting old friends for the first time. Makes one take another look and wonder. I just love when a man loves his woman so much that he’ll sit through four hours of girl talk. You strike me though as being a man who genuinely loves PEOPLE too, and enjoys the fellowship and good conversation with whomever – young, old, male, female. That makes you pretty special!!! Blessings on you both!

    George you were so sweet not to leave us while we were talking non stop. Great to meet you and Betsy (and Shelley and Gregg). We are going to have to get together again. Did you go by Ozone on the way home?

    What fun you all must have had. It’s got to be great meeting blogging buddies. You and Greg must have talked too, those ladies looked like they talked non-stop. MB

    It is really cool to meet blogging buddies in person. I know exactly what you mean about feeling like you know them already. I’m lucky to live a few miles from 3 blogging buddies!!
