A good morning meeting

Well it happened o yes ladies and gentlemen it did...... gary and I were actually able to meet and it was a very good time!!! We decided to meet halfway for both of us he being near seattle and i being near portland. It was close to an hour and a half commute i would like to say i arrived fashionably late but actually i got a lil later start than planned and then missed the place at first pass. DOH ( homer simpson moment) The town we met in was pretty small and actually reminded more of a midwest town than one in the pacific northwest. I got out to ask where it was from a local and then proceeded to drive the WRONG WAY. dow na one way street!!!!! yikes..... luckily no cops were around , in my haste i neglected to notice the numerous signs saying ONE WAY thankfully i soon arrived and saw gary sitting at a table also seeing an empty plate. man how could i have been that late!!! No worries my friend told me he could easily talk as i ate and indeed he could!!! LOL

We had a great time discussing our health issues, church experiences, blog friends and theological viewpoints. it was very cool to actually see gary in person after having chatted via blogs and emails as well as talking to him on the phone. I totally enjoyed the time together and hopefully, when miss barbara/layla comes to portland in the spring mr dude will have to venture down here to portland for another meeting!!!!! We left and shared a big hug ..... since we are both BIG men lol and drove off with satisfied bellies good breakfast food,,, gotta love omelettes with biscuits and gravy!!!! So there is my small take on this historic event!!!! Maybe we can lure brian and amber out for a visit so we can see taser up close and in person!!! Time will tell................
