Morning All. We had a great meet last night. I met a lot of "Mites in the flesh. Company was good and there was a lot of laughter. It was very special to meet Dotty, her So and their friends. There were about 25 of us in all and I know I enjoyed myself, I'm sure everyone else did :lol:

We had a great time last night. Pleasure to meet Dotty and SO, and so many other new people. Special thanks to Dotty from Jan.

Lots of photos were taken, should we be afraid? No, we probably caused the problems with Dotty's pics!

I really enjoyed the meet. Thank you everyone and especially my smoking partners :twisted:

Enjoyed meeting with Dotty and Derrick and their friends Bob and Angie. Hope you have a wonderful trip to Wilderness. :mrgreen:

Meeting all the other forumites was also a great treat. This was my first meet, but definitely not the last. Next time I am going to stay over so that I don't have to leave so early.

My internet connection is super slow today. I will post the pictures in the next day or so.

If any attendees have objections to their photos being posted, please let me know soonest! :lol:
