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.
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:
Gaile - Tweety
Phyllis - Phyllbo
Steve - Y2C
Linda - Trip
Cruznut - Cher
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!

I'm sure I've probably left someone out and I apologize. I hate that I won't be able to do the next get together in Sept. Sounds like it's going to be a big one!

Tweety and da Coot
Jack and Kim
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.

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

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>
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?
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.
