IRL (In Real Life)

For those who don't know; this is Laura, who I know from a very special board. Not long ago, Laura asked if she could come and visit me. Absolutely and without question; YES. Its a long drive. Over 10 hours, but she did it. We had the best time. We chatted like we'd always been together. We toured some interesting local attractions and scrapped a bit and just talked ourselves silly. My "by-the-rules" kid wasn't too sure about inviting an internet aquaintance to our house. She teased us pretty good about it. Afterall, we tell our kids not to talk to strangers online and don't give out too much personal info and all that. But Laura and I have been on the same board for so long that we just "knew" each other. She did tell the kids that she left the axe in the car. LOL This was such a fun time. Now we're talking about getting more of us together next summer for a weekend on the west coast. I can hardly stand to wait that long. I wonder if the others will bring their axes.

Well sorry to disapoint you Jennie, I do not own an ax but I'm sure I can find a big Butchers knife around someplace :) I really hope this works out for next summer but we have to wait and see.

We don't need no stinkin' axes, we can find rope, knives, machetes, and a few whips lying around, I bet!

I still wake up every morning just smiling that we got a chance to hang out and laugh and talk and get to know each other so much more than through a board...it was one of the most fabulous trips of my life!

Jennie, I came late to this post, but I'm so so so glad you two had a good time. I wish I'd been there! I can just imagine the fun and laughter. Thanks for making the blog entry - I still check everyone's from time to time, but I wish there were a new entry most days . . . . Guess I gotta do my own first!

OK - so I'm REEEEAAAAALLLY late to this party. How freaking fantastic was this!!! You two look so cute and happy in that pic - love it! Since we've got the ax, butcher's knife, rope, machete and whip covered I'll bring the poison!

That's One Way To Do It
