That is soooo cool Katie!!! This past January, I got to meet a friend of mine that I met on a Chihuahua forum. She lives in Canada and happened to be coming to Austin Texas for a convention. I flew down there to meet her. It was great!

Toots, if I remember correctly you're in the Cincinnati/Covington area. That's about 300 miles from Paducah. You must drive like my younger brother. He could make it in 3 hours.

No, it would take me much longer than 3 hours - maybe 5! I am not a fast driver, I'm more along the lines of old lady/Sunday driver.

You could also do regional meetings. One of my fly fishing forum communities does what they call Fish-Ins, where people all meet at one spot for a week of fishing, food & fun. Some stay at the meeting facility and others camp or stay at other lodgings. I attended the Michigan Fish-In in 2008 & 2007, and was amazed to find people attending from Ohio, Ontario Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee, Kentucky and even the state of Washington. They also hold them in Florida, Pennsylvania, Idaho and Washington, with plans to add other states in the next couple of years.

If someone could find a way of coordinating a meeting where foodies could ply their trade for several days, that would be a real bonus. Maybe take over a resort's kitchen. LOL

I guess I'm a little late getting on line...when I got home, I had to have a nap! We had a wonderful time...that's the farthest I've ventured from home in a long while, but it was important to me to meet Katie, and we couldn't have had a more beautiful day at this time of year. And wow! What a restaurant!

Katie, Kim says, "Thank You," for the compliment. I think he kinda liked being called a peach. We think you're pretty fine, too, and are looking forward to seeing you again.

For those of you who don't know Katie well, she is just as you would imagine: Attractive, friendly, intelligent, down to earth and lots of fun! We were so comfortable together that she could have been my best friend from high school.

I know you are all waiting for the picture...Katie's are probably better.

*Note: I don't use a wheel chair very often, but had to do more walking than I was able today. Please don't picture me in a wheel chair.
