A few months ago I stumbled across a blog – a blog about a Hobby Farm. Normally the subject of raising chickens would not be of interest to me, but there was something special about this blog, something special about the blogger that piqued my interest.
Turns out Amy of TBN Ranch grew up in the Chicago suburbs, an area very familiar to me. As our comments went back and forth, we realized Amy’s little farm was located ten minutes from my son’s home in Phoenix, Arizona and not far from our camp spot just north of the valley.
Small world….”We have to meet for coffee”. And meet we did. We spent two hours talking non-stop at a local coffee shop. Amy and I have little in common, yet we have a lot in common. We talk about family. We compare stories on old stomping grounds in Illinois. Yes, we really do have a lot in common.
Amy is as warm and genuine as I envisioned from her blog. I had a great time and I hope she did also.
We continue to follow each others blogs and occasionally email. It was through subsequent emails we discovered other similar interests. How cool! Interests that require we get together for another two-hour coffee visit to delve into the subject.
Although our lives are pulled in different directions, I look forward to getting together with Amy again and always look forward to one of her posts – will it be a lovely poem, some interesting photos, or a story about one of her animals? Poor JoJo lost all her feathers just as winter was approaching. Will we ever know why?
Meeting a fellow blogger was truly a fun experience. Hey, Amy I’m ready for coffee whenever you are!
Next week, I meet blogger Mona Liza of The Lowe’s RV Adventures. Party time at the campground….
