    givaway from a friend

    I don't want to accidentally embarrass anyone here. So I won't say who I am talking about.
    I'm going to receive a care package from one of our members whom I consider a good friend even though we still haven't met up in person. He has done this before and I'm both touched and truly appreciate his gestures of friendship. Don't know how to return the friendship or say thanks properly but I'll try in some small way. Many thanks, my friend.

    Edit: I have been on many forums and can say, ours here truly has a family feel and friendship bond I have never before experienced. It is special and I hope it lasts for many years to come.

    I have to agree with you Frank. I've never, ever, considered meeting anyone I've met on the interwebs in person before. Just seemed like one of those things you shouldn't do in this day and age.

    But I have to tell you, meeting the guys that are out on the tour? The only thing odd about meeting them in person was that it didn't seem odd at all. It just seemed like some friends stopping by for a visit. Heck, I've felt more awkward around my biological family before!

    We digress, but that's OK, we are still talking about friends.
    A couple years ago I did something completely out of character for me. I'm a kinda security conscience guy, sometimes even a bit wary of folks until I get to know them. I'm happy to report there are other really great forums 'out there' in cyberworld. One is a muzzle loading forum. I e-met a fellow who decided to travel the country with his wife and meet e-friends in person. Well, as luck would have it, we could not be home at the time they planned to arrive. But, I had come to think of him as a friend and gave information on how to get into our house. Told them to go in, make selves at home and we would be back later. Happily, they are as great folks in person as in the e-world. To this day they are still close friends. I have said before, and mean it, Casa Fusco is always open to the Family.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
