Meeting Dr Amy

Amy and I have been chatting for several years since we "met" at the CKMB. I have loved watching her 4 gorgeous curly headed boys grow up through her pictures and beautiful scrapbook pages. She and I seem to have many things in common as our families grew up. We both love scrapbooking and we have both begun learning photography. We learned early in the relationship that she lived near Curtis' parents in Alabama and talked about meeting someday. Because I was unable to go with Curtis the last couple of times he made the trip, it never happened until now. On Wednesday, Curtis and I made the trip from Sylacauga to Inverness to meet Amy for lunch at Chili's near her office. Everyone seemed to think that 40 mile drive was a big deal but it wasn't any further than I drive to work most days. Besides that, we were in the middle of nowhere and there just wasn't any place except fast food between the two towns. It was just another opportunity for my ears to pop as we drove through the mountains again and watched the beautiful scenery go by. It was a delightful lunch. Amy was very sweet and I enjoyed the conversation very much.

I have met so many wonderful people through this hobby of mine. It is exciting to say that I have friends all over the world. Even though I have never actually met many of them, I have come to know them through pictures and stories on their scrapbook pages. The internet is an amazing place, isn't it?
