Meeting a fellow blogger

When we recently went up to NYC we had the opportunity to meet a fellow blogger, Trish from Menopausal Stoners. We had a lovely picnic lunch in Strawberry Fields in Central Park. When we met Trish she greeted us and began talking about stuff going in her day as if we were old friends, picking up where we left off the last time we spoke. The funny thing was, I was familiar with every topic because I had been reading her blog for quite some time. Its always nice when you get to meet a fellow blogger. We got to meet Marilyn of Maeve's Madness last Fall (it's not our fault she hasn't posted in 8 months) and now Trish. Next summer we plan to meet up with Larena of Life at 40 something (who we already know) and Michelle of 1 Million Tries and Knock Knock its Cancer. My ultimate meet ups that I hope to accomplish one day will be to meet Naomi (Old lady in the hills) out in CA and Cyberkitten in England (whose real name is still a mystery to me after reading him for years. Anyway, below are the pix. Thanks Trish for a great meetup and picnic.

What a WONDERFUL place for a "meet-up"....and a Picnic, too....So much History in that Beautiful Park....It is a miracle that Central Park IS, and conitues to be...you know?
I must say, I would love to meet Cyberkitten, too....I've been reading him for almost the whole 6 1/2 years I have been blogging....
You just have to make another visit to Hollywood, my dear....!

These Verifcation words are so hard to read....!

Hi Naomi. Yes, I've been reading both you and CK for at least 4 years. When we went to England a few years ago I made plans to meet him and a couple other Bloggers but time and money for the train nixed those plans. I have only been to SF and Oakland to visit my brother, but next time I'm in CA I will definitely stop by to see you. Thankfully you can't hear me cussing at my iPad. This darn autocorrect won't stop changing the letters I type for the word verification.

Oh how nice for you guys! It's a treat to meet other bloggers isn't it? I have done it twice now as well and it's like talking to an old friend.

I am so looking forward to seeing you next summer!

Hugs.

Lake Ontario
