Yeah. Rich is strangely silent. Are you a Stalker?

Hey what a cool idea...an ER Forum T-shirt!

Except we would never agree on a color, logo, who would manufacture them...or the cost.

Moe got to the web faster than I could -- we're camping. But my DW found a wireless network and already this thread is out of control .

We really did have a blast. Neither one of us bothered to mention how we'd recognize the other. We checked at the front desk then loitered, when my phone started ringing -- it was Moe and SO already seated, waving at us 20 feet away.

And yes, I did ask her about her punctuation. Someone had to do it, and I owed it to the board, esp the moderators. This involved at least 2 glasses of wine and a couple of beers between the two of us. But the usual dynamic took over: "just drinks" for an hour or so until all 4 of us (Moe brought a body guard) were convinced that the other was not a serial killer, then we agreed to order dinner.

Moe has a great sense of humor, great raconteur. We already agreed to a repeat performance up in Tampa in the not distant future. For the record, I initiated the meet and greet knowing we would be camping at a funky little ocean front campground on Siesta Key, close to Moe's home. Glad I did.

It was great fun.

Pictures would have been great! Glad to hear that you had a good time. I must confess that I would probably be afraid to meet one on one with someone, because I would probably be too boring for this group. (Darn, I thought that I had done away with that inferiority complex from high school.) Would love to be in a group, where I could watch and listen though.

I had not paid attention to your punctuation and had to go to some of your previous posts. Now, I am sure that I will notice it for awhile. I hate to think what some people must think of some of my postings!

I completely forgot RiT was located in Tampa. I was there twice in 2008 for parental medical issues.
I have met quite a few people through the internet. Most of them horse owning people like myself. I have met some wonderful riding buddies and a few typical crazy horse people.

Is it politically correct to say that about Native Americans?
