Default Outside the boards

Hey Gang,
Ok, took a break from outside and was reading some of the other posts. How many of you have actually met and or know or are related to people on the boards?
Here's my list:
Had the privilege of meeting some of the Fl cruisemates in Orlando. Ray and Helen, Michelle, Angela, Kim and Jack, Jennifer,If I missed anybody, sorry. In Tampa had thye joy of getting together with Sue and SeaHunks and ok, I've lost my mind but another cruisemate from St Pete (seatrekker?). Am best friends with Melissa(Theta). Have known her for 10 years Used to live next to each other. She is the one who put me onto the boards. And finally, JBonnell, otherwise known as my mom, who just got the nerve up to post
So to all that read this, please feel free to jump in. The more the merrier. A stranger is only a person I haven't met yet.
Anne

I've had the honor to meet so many of the great folks from here...I'm sure I will forget someone. I will try to list them:
Donna Nye
Gaile - Tweety
Phyllis - Phyllbo
Mike
Kuki
Robo
Steve - Y2C
Ray
Sharon
Paul Motter
Anne Campbell
Linda - Trip
Cruznut - Cher
Mary Margaret-Salem5050
Michelle
Cindy
Nancy
Susie

And of course, all of their spouses.
I've cruised with most of the above. And as I said, I am sure I am forgetting people. If I did forget you, please forgive me...the mind isn't what it used to be.
I will have the pleasure of meeting some more folks at the upcoming Orlando get together in September!

Great post ... let's see:

* Pamda (miss her)

* Shar and Capt Ron.

* Cruiseguy Gary

* Mike from CMs

Geez, I know I am forgetting so many people. Many of whom I met while planning trips on the same trip/date. Also several guys from G/L board when we sailed on the Diamond last October.

Always enjoyable to meet fellow travelers.

Harry

Hi
We've had the pleasure of meeting:
Ray and Helen
AngelaZ and Hubby
Tweety and da Coot
Jack and Kim
Marc
Uconn-Jodi
Another Jack and his wife-from Sun City, I believe
and Carol B up in Ohio-who was on the same cruise with us last year.

It almost sounds like a list of thank you's from the Academy Awards! . But, we're all thankful for getting to meet each other!!

Related to BossyGossy and CathyM - my two sisters who post from time to time. Oh- and duct tape pro is my son.

Had the pleasure of sailing with Thomas and Mrs. Thomas after "meeting" Thomas here on the boards.

Hope to do a CM cruise one day and meet many more folks.

This is a nice thread, and something rather eerie has happened today. About 4:15 this afternoon I was posting on another thread and, out of a clear blue sky, I wrote that I missed Pam Kane. Her name simply popped into my head. Understand now, I had not yet seen this thread by Anne Marsh. I have just now noticed that on this thread at 12:05 pm, Carole mentioned Pamda, and than at 5:02 pm Harry Martin referred to Pam as well. And all three of us not only mentioned her name, but we all said we "miss" her. Wow!

Don't try to tell me that Pamda's spirit isn't hovering over the chit-chat forum on this 3rd day of August. Welcome back, Pam (not that you've ever been gone). And yes, I promise to read Happy Sails again before my next cruise.<G>

Jack

I have not many anyone on these boards, but I sure am looking forward to meeting some of you on the next Let's Get Lei'd group cruise!
I live about 10 minutes from Cruise Cynic, and we grew up and went to school in the same general area, although I was (ahem...older...). There's really no excuse why we haven't actually met yet. How 'bout it Cynic?

I've been lucky enough to have met hundreds of cruisemates through our CruiseMates group cruises, and pre cruise bashes! I wouldn't even try and list all the names because I'd miss someone important.

People are the reason I joined cruisemates in the first place. And getting to meet more and more is what keeps it fun!

Roller Donna You cannot meet Cruise Cynic as this statement, "the infidels have revealed our secret" may be used again and you will blow his cover

Mind you, a bit of cake (possibly a whole cake) should lure him out.

Have not met anyone from here on a cruise yet but just last week we did have the utmost pleasure of meeting : Frank and Susan from Payson, Az..who are booked on the Rock the Locks cruise. It would take a miracle for us to make it but we sure would love to...I AM looking forward to meeting a lot more people from here in the future.
