A few of the alma mater (original commenters) of the In the Garden blog met for lunch and fellowship recently. It was a fun day and a great day to catch up with everyone in person. Those in attendance were (from left to right): Nina, Tina, Skeeter, and Anonymous. We were sad my mother (Jean), sister (Dawn), and friend Lola could not attend due to their living out of way out of state. We all hope that sometime soon all seven of us will be together to talk, talk, talk!
I want to say a personal thanks to Skeeter for taking time out of her Thanksgiving weekend to meet up with us all, to Nina for traveling all the way from the big city of Erin, and to Anonymous for allowing me to publish her picture-finally after more than one year! I think that as of last week all of my commenters have been officially published and photographed and posted on the blog. All of the commenters have become friends, and were very instrumental in getting In the Garden blog going.
It has been most rewarding making new friends through the virtual world. Through the virtual world of blogging we can learn that we really do have lots in common with one another and can really get to know one another. I thank all of you who comment on our little blog and enjoy getting to know you all.
Also, we really enjoyed having Anonymous's husband (THE Hunter), Boy #1 and #2, the Girl model, and the Sidekick join us for lunch! It was great seeing everyone and I hope we can do it again soon. The Front Page Deli was a perfect place to hang out and talk. The staff was kind and food delicious. Note the really cool mural on the wall behind us. Thanks Mr. Hunter for snapping the picture of us.
