My World: Is Full of Wonderful People

Betsy with Becky and Michael, Jackson, Tennessee. June 10, 2011.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

One of the nicest things about the trip that Betsy and I took last month was that we got to meet three good friends for the very first time.  On the very first day of our trip we met Becky of Thoughtfully Blended Hearts and her husband Michael for lunch.  They were both as charming and as friendly in person as they are in Becky’s blog.

Betsy and Vedarae, Amarillo, Texas. June 12, 2011.

On our way through Texas we met Cotton Lady, Vedarae, for lunch.  Vedarae doesn’t have a blog, although I’m confident she could write many fascinating and interesting posts.  Vedarae and Betsy have been e-mail buddies for quite some time, and it was a pleasure for me to meet and get to know her.

Betsy and Linda, Grand Junction, Colorado. June 24, 2011.

On our way to Rocky Mountain National Park we met Linda — Colorado Farm Life — and her husband, Terry, for lunch.  (Are you beginning to see a pattern here?).  Meeting them was truly like seeing old friends again.  Linda’s blog is full of insights into the joys — and trials — of farm life and both Betsy and I enjoy following her.  The time with the two of them went entirely too quickly, but we hope to meet them again either here in Tennessee or when we return to Colorado.

If you ever get the chance to meet a blog friend in person, I encourage you to do so.  I promise you won’t regret it.

    I have been fortunate enough to meet a number of blogging friends and it’s been wonderful, so I do relate to what you have written! So glad you and Betsy had such a great trip and had the opportunity to meet the ones that you did!! Would love to do the same if you ever happen to be in Seattle!! Have a great week, George!

    Terry and I enjoyed you both so very much. After you left for the other side of the divide we talked for a long time about all the places we would like to show you when you come back (hopfully) the next time!
