Bloggers I met... Part I

So much to blog… so little time. I met some of the nicest people this weekend. In no particular order, here is the first of the new bloggers I met:

First, Denny of Grouchy Old Cripple. I love this man. He must have the most infectious laugh, as every time I heard him laugh, I felt one bubbling up to the surface in me. What a funny and great man he is. And I posted once on what I like in men (it was a meme, I wasn’t trolling for a date!) and one of them was sincerity. This would be him. There is nothing fake about him, no airs, and when I went back to read his blog, I found… the same thing, smart and sincere. And I could listen to this man sing and play guitar for hours. The whole guitar/kazoo combo rocks. Really.

Next Jim of Parkway Rest Stop. He was the other half of the musical duo and once again, I could listen to this man play and sing for hours. Which I did, but could have done more of. I’d been to his blog in the past, reading his Teresa/John Kerry parodies and his current OJ/Saddam Hussein dialogue and knew he was funny as hell, but in person, it’s even better. I think it’s his deadpan delivery. Another sharp mind with a quick wit, he is a great great man.

Redneck of Redneck Ramblings… we had the opportunity to have breakfast sitting across from each other. I was laughing at the stories of his dogs and it is always good to listen to people who are a few years ahead of you in the whole kid thing as you have a window to what it’s like to be a parent of teenagers. He cracked me up as he kept asking me why all of us don’t evac during a hurricane. “If I were you and I saw that big storm comin’ right at me, I’d get the hell out of there!” I kept telling him I don’t live close to the coast and he kept saying, “I don’t care! I’d leave!!!” Cracked me up.

Key Munroe of Key Issues and her husband were there Friday night and joined us for breakfast on Saturday morning. A nicer woman cannot be found. She has a heart as big as Georgia and is as sweet as they come. I so enjoyed meeting her and laughing with her. My only wish is that it had been for a longer period of time. And this girl is tall… not as tall as Tammi, but still… I think I come up to her waist. I’m the hobbit girl next to those legs that come up to her neck!

ArmyWifeToddler Mom may very well be the funniest woman I have ever met in my life. Holy crap… I was cryin’. And no, I may not be big, but I’m not so ‘tiny’ that she can take me home in her pocket! Hey, but that girl’s got it all goin’ on. Afterall, she got dubbed as ‘Martha Stewart’ but hotter. And don’t let her fool you… she is a beautiful woman. Just keep her away from that moonshine... I hear she wants her own distillery.

And more… TOMORROW!!! I’m breaking it up into bunches. So many people… one long post, they’ll all get lost.

Wow... You are fast! Even to get a partial summary in by the Monday following...Impressive. ; )

But three kids, a blog, and a full-time job, why should I be surprised?! Heh. Thanks Bou honey, for the kind words. I'm sure you and your sis get tired of being described as ADORABLE - both in personality and appearance - so I'll try to control myself when I get around to doing my own weekend summary.

Any way ya phrase it, we were both so pleased to have met you! I seem to thrive on meeting new bloggers, so I'm already looking forward to the next fix...!

Key- Ack! NO full time job! I couldn't do that. I only work part-time for pay. You can use words like cute and adorable... we're cool. Hell I call myself a hobbit all the time. Adorable is a helluva lot better than that!

AWTM- gorgeous skin? Holy crap you had way to much moonshine girl. It's called... concealer. They sell it at any make up counter and drug store. My rosacea was acting up really bad. I was afraid I was going to look like a drunk!

Jim- I only speak the truth. I only wish I had had the guts to run my hands through your great hair. ;-) That whole invasion of personal space thing, I just couldn't do it. heh heh heh!
