I love these meetings. First, I get to meet some of the peeps here and put faces with  names. Then the conversations are so varied. Who knows what we're going to talk about. It could be HIV, pets, the Amish, differences in Europe and America or a billion other things. LOL

Happy rumspringa! LOL


omg. look how little photoshopping I had to do in 2004 to pull off my fake-out.
The trees even still have leaves!

When my 2nd partner (Jim) and I got to CLT, we dressed him up in my courier uniform, and I hid in a box and little brother and his wife had gotten for us. My mom had only seen Jim in my website pictures, so she didn't recognize him at first when he "delivered" the big package to her front porch. Needless to say, after I jumped out of the box, her first words to me were, "did you lie about that accident?!? I was so worried!" LOL

Whatever, Mom. LOL I'm home, and please meet the second love of my life. <3

Hope all is well and staying dry.  It's wet here in Ohio today and for the next week or so. Ugh.  I hope I don't melt.

It's wet here in Ohio today
OMG, my yard is currently becoming my pool. ugh. it's so soggy and muddy here in SC but I keep telling myself it's all good because I'm sure by the first of June, it'll be hot, humid and heading towards drought conditions like it does every year and I'll have to pay to water the garden daily.

how I accidentally nearly killed myself last week
now who's accident prone? LOL

Was a really good and supportive meet, and looking forward to seeing everyone again on the 20th of May.

Topics included; Hairstyles, family, ageing disgracefully, work, horrible bosses, Holiday plans, addiction, peer support and coming out of the closest

that's great! the euphemisms are hilarious, and the topics all right on point.

As always, I enjoyed our chat. At this point it's really interesting getting to know more about everybody.



It's almost like y'all are real people that I know. ROFLMAO  ;D ;D

Thanks Jim. I will see what I can do and let you know.
Iím supposed to go to an event with the kids, but my wife and I are questioning if I should go to big public events before I can get on the antibiotics. My DR has been very quick to act, so Iím thinking she will do it Monday.
If I donít go out, Iíll definitely join!

I can't believe how fast time has gone by and we're already up to another meeting. But then again, a lot has happened in that time....and a lot of travel. 700 miles of travel for me! (or 1126.54km for those in the rest of the world. LOL)

See y'all Saturday!

we also discussed the Greek political/voting system, discrimination against Albanians, had a small video tour of a Grecian town, and never found out what caused an explosion.

Is anyone using an app to join instead of a browser? Going to test the app tonight to see how that works, as someone reported issues with the app.

interesting. i went to check, on my tablet, whether there was an app and found that Google Duo, a video phone/chat app has been upgraded to be Google Meet now.

Even though we chatted about some serious stuff (the world is a mess!) we did laugh a lot. As usual, I enjoyed our chat a bunch. Maybe some day we'll get a few more peeps to join in.
