..... today, like many other autumn days, dawned peaceful and damp, and I spent much of the morning looking forward to a day of SEC football..... Alabama, Florida, Arkansas, Georgia, and Vanderbilt....... it promised to be quite a day!.....

..... then imagine my surprise when I heard from the Velociman today saying that he and Key Monroe were just around the corner!........ that's right, friends, He and Key got their dates mixed up....... and instead of arriving next week for the Annual SE Tennessee Blogmeet, they showed up today!.....

.... actually, it was a pleasure....... we watched the Georgia/Vandy game together..... I mixed up a few gin and tonics (and even an appletini for Key), and a grand time was had by all........

.... you know, blogmeets are nice, they truly are..... it is great to have a bunch of "online journalists" camped out in your living room, or back yard....... but there is nothing like spending time with your fellow bloggers where you can actually have a True Conversation with them.......

.... nothing beats one-on-one time, I guess..........

.... so tonight I have been blessed....... I had a good few hours with some folks that I have known for a long, long time....... and next weekend I get the pleasure of the Horde of bloggers that I have known for a long, long time......... what an unexpected gift!.... .

...... carrying a blog, folks, there truly isn't anything else like it for providing a life filled with unexpected gifts.....

Bullshit So Far

yep, I enjoy the blog meets but it is difficult to get to talk much with everyone in sch a short time.

The first of this month I spent a few days in Port Lavaca...most of it with Tall Cool Drink of Water and her family...it has been the high light of this road trip

I met up with GuyK, who is in OK visiting relatives and fishing) yesterday for lunch. The Piper from Extended Table showed up for a few minutes. It wasn't exactly a bogmeet, but as close as I have ever been to one. I am putting "blogmeet" on my "top 25 things to do before I die" list.

Altho evidently I have stepped on more toes than one could think possible in this (meaning this exact group) little blog world, Eric, you, sir, have been kind enough to allow me to stay.

Used to think I grew up with very good manners and always wanted everyone to be happy, but also have never met such a sensitive group as bloggers, I guess.

I'm still playing catch up on my reading after being gone for several days... does this mean V-man and Key won't be there this weekend? I hope not! Or at this rate it will be just LeeAnn and I at your place. LOL.

Och, aye, I got the date wrong. But this was the only weekend we could have made it, as Key has her daughter next weekend and I have a convention in the sordid city of Louisville, hometown of Muhammad Ali, Hunter S. Thompson, and Audrey Hollander.
In a way it was better, as we got some quality face time devoid of the usual drunken shenanigans.
I'll drunk dial Saturday.

v-Man - A likely story. You just didn't want to put up with the BS of the Blown-Eyes.
