meeting Hangout friends @ Joe Val

Posted by banjo_robb on Monday, February 18, 2008

How exciting it was to finally get to meet some of you in person!  A bunch of us met for a Hangout photo at Tom Mirisola's vendor table on Sat. 2/16 at the Joe Val Festival.  There were about 10 of us in the photo.  I did not get everyone's names, & not everyone I met was able to be there for the photo.  Many thanks to Tom Mirisola's wife, Karen, who patiently took the group photos with various members' cameras!  My hubby, PyrPups, & I were pleased to meet:  Kathy 315, Klondike Waldo, Bill-in-ME, 3 Fingers (Gordon), KayakJZ, Gabe, Arnie Fleischer, Johnny Butten, Rich Stillman, & Bill Keith.

Hearing & seeing Bill Keith & Rich Stillman & Johnny Butten pick together in the same room that I was in, left me in awe! They have re-sparked my interest in learning to be a better picker. The best part, however, is how down-to-earth each of them is.

Thanks for wonderful memories, one & all!! My hubby, PyrPups, & I are looking forward to seeing you all again, hopefully in the not-too-distant future!!

For sure, Kathy!  Friends are definitely what it is all about!

I know what you mean about your fingers.  I did more picking in the one day we spent there, than in the past week combined, I think!  My calluses have calluses!
