You Can't Take That Away From Me
One thing that my six years of participating has brought me is friendships. Great friendships, with people who would do anything for you.
This week, I get to see two (three) of the people that I met through my connections to that place. In a few minutes, I head to the Port of Tampa to pick up Paula and her hubby from their cruise. As their flight doesn't leave Tampa until 7pm, we'll do something together. We're finally meeting face to face after numerous phone conversations and even more IMs, thanks to meeting on the YaYa thread.
Then, later this week, I get to met another-one I've met a few times before. Part of my excitement about moving to Florida is that I'd get to meet my friends from time to time. Some may find it strange that I found my friends on a message board, but I think it's cool to find like minded individuals.
So for that reason, I'm getting ready to leave for my day with friends and have that song going through my head.
Some pictures from around the Tampa Bay area, while enjoying the company of Paula and Jeffrey!
