We received an unexpected invitation this afternoon from online friends I met 10 years+ ago who live in CA. They are involved in DAV and want us to meet them in CO in August for the DAV National Convention. My SO is a disabled veteran due to a back injury he suffered as a medic in Vietnam. Fortunately it doesn't affect his life to any degree. Pam and Jim are very active in this organization; even to the extent that Pam was voted into the position of California State Auxillery Commander. So if we go we would be attending with 'royalty'.
The reason I'm sharing this with everyone is because Pam has just joined SP after an invitation from me. We would be hanging in together to stay true to the program if we all are together. Isn't online marvelous? Pam and Jim, Richard and I would have NEVER met if not for Slingo! That's where Pam and I met over 10 years ago. We met in person in CA when I was on my way to Hawaii. Then we met again with our daughters in Vegas for a girl weekend. This will be our 3rd meeting ... I love having something like this to look forward to and use as a goal to lose a few more pounds before August.
