Did you ever have a day where you were so nervous about something that you felt nothing would go right, but yet it does?
How about when you are getting ready to meet someone in person for the first time, especially when it’s someone that you really look up to and respect, like your favorite NASCAR driver, or a Celebrity, or even a Friend you met while blogging, kind of like Royalty, you get the idea.
I got up early this morning and began getting myself ready to go and meet up with such a person, I showered and shaved, combed my hair until it was perfect, woke up Cindy, had breakfast, then sat down to wait for time to go, it was only 7am at this time, only about five hours to go.
At a quarter after eleven I grabbed my hat and placed it upon my perfectly combed hair and followed Cindy out the door, heading for our local Mexican Restaurant.

There I kid you not I had the privilege to sit down for a fantastic meal with my wife Cindy, and a genuinely nice guy Pat Tillett from Patrick Tillett Extremely Overdue, if you know Pat you then you how great he is, if not then you should stop by and give him a visit, you will be glad you did.
Pat met us at the front door and led us to the table that he had already acquired, we sat down and discussed everything from our kids and grandkids, to posts we had made in the past that the other remembered, Pat and I even discussed and wondered how Cindy was going to eat that Giant Chimichanga she had on her plate, kind of made our meals look puny.
Blogging is kind of like telling your life story, or getting something off of your chest, we all say that we blog strictly for ourselves and not the comments, but Pat and I both agree that we have met a slew of good people through our blogs and their comments mean the world.
After lunch with Pat today I know that we have made a good friend, I pray that we can meet up again next time he and his wife come through town, until then we will keep in touch with he and all of our present and new friends that we blog with.
And also after lunch today Pat and I wonder how in the world that chimichanga disappeared so fast.
Do you have an experience to share where you met up with someone that you blog with?
