THAT made my day!

My day ended up fantastic yesterday.

In fact the only thing that could have been better is if I'd have had the opportunity to chat with a bunch of bloggers.

Oh, wait. I did.

I mean face to face chat. In my livingroom. Eating cobbler.

Last night Michele of NY made it possible for a group of us to join in on a conference call. And we did.

Teresa, Richmond, Oddy, Rachel, Lemon Stand, Mrs. Who and the greatly missed _Jon (previously of We Swear) had the opportunity to tell stories, laugh and get to know each other for a while. It was fantastic.

It had been a while since I'd had the opportunity to chat with Teresa so that was very nice. And damn - she had some great one liners. Funny...very funny. Let me tell you.....

Richmond was great at keeping everyone involved and asking just the right question. Even on the phone, she's the "hostess with the mostess".

Oddy - damn girl. You crack me up. AND DON'T FORGET THE CAMERA TODAY. I'm lookin' forward to those photos! :-)

Knowing Mrs. Who lives in the deep south, I always read her with a southern accent. I have to tell you folks - I don't do her justice. Also a very funny lady. I'm just so glad you joined in. Tell Bitterroot to get well soon!!!

I was very excited to finally "meet" Rachel and Lemon Stand. I've been bad, because I had been using other blogrolls to get to their places. I've fixed that as of this morning. Ladies? It was a real pleasure. I just hope we didn't scare you off. We (The Bad Example Family) can be a bit.........overwhelming at times.

And _Jon. Jon, Jon, Jon, Jon, Jon. Long time no talk Dude. Folks - this guy cracks me up! Oh, he tries to come off all mean and grumpy. But seriously? Yeah, one hell of a nice guy. And don't even get me started on the funny. It was WONDERFUL talking with you again! Oh, and hurry up and fix that damned blog of yours! Please.......

There was one little glitch where all but two of us got booted off. But most of us called back in, if only to say Bye Bye. Over all? It was a great way to spend an hour on a Friday night.

Michele? So sorry you weren't able to join us. But thank you soooo much for setting this all up. Although, my recommendation is that next time? Yeah, don't have the fox guard the chickens. :-)

so other than that, i'm glad y'all had a great time.

I have only one regret, that I didn't schedule a playback so I could listen to it when I was better. NOpe make that 2 regrets, I wished I had been well enough to participate. But I spare you all from hearing my heaving, so that was good.

I'm glad you all had a wonderful time. And darn it, I just realized that I still haven't made it to a BAD blogmeet, virtual or otherwise!

Having been on many "time limited" conference calls. Did you realize it was exactly one hour when we got booted? I figured we had run out of time and got closed down. It didn't occur to me to call back in as I thought the session was closed. Oh well. It was great to talk to everyone.

Oh, yes, it was wonderful, and you were a most excellent hostess!! I so enjoyed listening to everyone. But what do you mean, that you "always read me with a southern accent and you didn't do me justice"???? Well, Fiddle-dee-dee! (Which is just a Southern way of saying something that would make your mama wash your mouth out with soap!)
