Well, it WAS a lively discussion....Charleston Blogger group.
I've done more than 700+ postings on my blog so I wanted to meet other locals who do this.
Twice I have had to cancel my RSVP.
Tonight I made it to Barnes & Noble and, after buying a cafe mocha, was directed by the Manager to the area in the back by the CDs and DVDs where the folding chairs were stacked.
I sat myself down.
It was her first Blogger meeting but she and I HAD met before.
On a breezy Saturday morning inside Park Circle just before Christmas.
I knew she looked familiar and she said I had taken her picture before.
We were both Tai Chi In The Park members and, yes, I had written a blog about that morning exercise session. She had read it.
Tonight, as we waited for others, we talked about our backgrounds and I told her about my Photography Group.
Madeline mentioned several local organizations she enjoyed. I said I was retired from the paper and we both laughed when she called it the News and Courier. Each of us grew up here calling it that.
She had lived in Europe and I have traveled there so we talked about Germany. Then The Netherlands. And, of course, Belgian waffles.
A very nice B&N employee came by to check and make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed for the meeting.
Something was indeed missing. Other members.
Almost an hour passed and nobody else showed up so we gathered our things and left. On the way, I returned my plate to the coffee section on the other side of the store.
I bade her a "safe driving" wish as we headed for our cars in a light sprinkling of rain.
My plan is to RSVP for next month.
I still would like to meet some fellow bloggers.
Also, I had forgotten to use my Starbucks discount Groupon.
