The Branson vine meet has come and gone and I was reflecting on the three days that we had together.
I had only met one other viner that was at the meet and that was for only 20 minutes so everyone was new to me in the face to face type meeting.
While the meet was going on we were trying to move into our new home. Now that was really something. The three days of the meet we had record temperatures and humidity so a lot of time was spent around the pool.
We have our share of trolls on newsvine along with arguements etc etc. But the meeting showed the best side of newsvine. Friendship, fun, laughing, sharing stories and best of all meeting our friends face to face. It is a unique experience.
rottlady put the meeting together and did a great job. Mrs D and her sister did a great job the day of the BBQ. cooking, baking and making everything just right. Mrs D husband and I talked quite a bit and he's a great guy. Sister's husband is a fisherman and hunter so he and I bonded right away. Mullie was stunning in her tiara and grump was his smooth self when he wasn't passing out from the heat. Marine and his wife were the best. Both of us being vet's we had a lot in common. MDC joined in and had a lot of interesting things to say.
The day of the BBQ was truly a great day. Wiki the Wonder Wiener was beside herself, getting treats from everyone and playing her game of chase. She wore Marine24 wife out with that game. I think that Marine24 wife enjoyed it, at least she said she did.
It's amazing how complete strangers can come together so quickly and have three days of fun.
To all my new face to face friends, YOUR THE BEST. I'm looking forward to seeing you all again.
P.S. Stone Hand was at the vine meet, you just never saw him.
