...and no longer is dbusguy just a username on our message board!

I enjoyed lunch with Don and his lovely wife Barb today at the 2nd Ave. Pier. If you have been reading the message board, you know that Don and Barb are from Canada, that he posts regularly and that he and Barb recently became grandparents. They are fun to be with and we shared lots of stories and laughs.

This meetup, like others in the past, quickly changed from a first time meeting into something more like a reunion of old friends. In about 30 seconds we were chatting as if we had known each other for years.

The food was good, as you can see in the photo. Our server took this picture. As many of you know, I usually ask the person who takes the photo do take it twice, in case of movement or closed eyes. However, she checked it out in the view finder and said "its good! " And she was right! Nobody blinked!

Don and Barb are currently in Myrtle Beach, and when we parted company, they were off to walk the Boardwalk, and enjoy the rest of this warm sunny day. I'm sure you'll be hearing from him soon.

Wow, what a write up. You nailed the lunch perfectly. It was such a pleasure to finally meet you. We had a great lunch and you are every bit a nice and kind person, in person, as you are on the board. We look forward to meeting with you again in the future and hopefully it will be during a meet up.

Deanna, even YOUR name came up. We were talking about the various accents one hears in Myrtle Beach. I said I loved the TN accent like you and Jack's (Hondo ) wife Emily have. It makes me feel like I'm sitting on the verandah of some southern plantation sipping a mint julep! :cool: I told them I'm from Virginia, and I don't have an accent! :clown:

What a nice photo. Meet-ups are great as it is always nice to be able to put a face to a name and finally meet with someone you already feel you know. I hope you are having a great holiday although I am sure you are both pining for that beautiful new baby.
