My wife and I just  had the pleasure of having dinner with NASCARon and his wife and granddaughter. They are travelling from Wisconsin to Pennsylvania and came a little out of the way to stop and see us in Gladwin, Michigan. Unfortunately they have to leave early tomorrow morning so we will not see them again.

Dan, That is so neat that you got to meet Nascar. Hodaya and I met in Israel when I was there in May. I hope more of us get to meet one another. Rosemary

Yes, it really felt like they were old friends, not new ones. We had talked via email and phone on and off for several weeks. They got in real late yesterday and did not have time to come to my house for a pontoon ride. Thought maybe this would look better than Pennsylvania.

We do not have a Polish restaurant in Gladwin. By the way, I think the correct spelling is golobki. Are you near Orlando? We go to Cocoa Beach, Fla in the winter. How about a raincheck on that golobki dinner?

That's great....we had a nice visit with someone recently I know from a different bulletin board area.

Dan, Maybe next time you are in the area visiting we can connect now that hubby is all recuperated and back to living life.

     Dan....you are correct on the spelling, but I spelled it like I pronounce it.  We're in NJ and don't go to FL in the winter or any other time.   A couple from church have a condo in Cocoa Beach.  As a matter of fact, they are down there now for a month.

Where are you?

Christine
You have a point. Only a Polish person would know golobki. Anyone else would have no idea what you are talking about.

Who is from Orlando?

I'm getting a lot of mileage telling people that I had dinner last night with a homeless man and his wife that I met on the internet. Really get some looks of disbelief.

Good...my memory isn't failing me...lol. When you were here hubby was still recuperating so I didn't really pursue trying to meet but we will have to try to connect in January then!

That's great that you too met up and that you shared. I met up with Blueheron in Colorado this summer, and that was wonderful.

I always felt like being sick made my life so much smaller. One of the unexpected benefits of having an ostomy is that it gives such a strong bond w/others who have them too.... just feels like it's a club that I never thought I'd join, but once I was in, it made my world bigger....

Hope to hear about more meetings...

This is so neat...if any of you are ever in the MS Delta, please let me know...I wish I had an ostomate friend here!

Happy Labor Day weekend!
