The Michigan Meeting!
Thanksgiving weekend of 2001 found me back in my home state of Michigan - where I got to FINALLY meet Lorelei, Steph H, and Brenda after months and months and months of on-line correspondence! And I 'dored them in person just as much as I knew I would!
Steph and Brenda live near each other and so Steph picked Brenda up and headed WAY out of her way to pick me up so that we could meet Lori in Holly, Michigan. Holly is a quaint little town that boasts a lot of antique stores and we did manage to find some Trixies! And, since Steph had a little BWG on board, we threw her a surprise shower at the restaurant.
Okay, the dog decided to eat my film and I wasn't sure if the pictures were going to come out at all. They did, but as you can tell, they just barely survived the Chance-monster!
