Our new MIRL-friend!

*Be sure to answer the related poll at the top of my sidebar!*

After all of the trips through Ohio on his motorcycle, Kokopelli finally let us talk him into visiting us. Maybe MIRL-friend (Meet In Real Life friend) doesn't exactly sound right in this case, but you get the idea.

Poor guy had to run all over Wayne County to find us all, but he made it. He visited with Mom, Mandy, Jason and Ernie in the morning. He came here in the afternoon and spent the evening with Kristy and Chros in Wooster.

Despite the helmet, Matthew and I knew exactly who he was as he slowly (cautiously? LOL) approached the end of our driveway. It was exciting to meet the character we've all come to "know" form our online blog and Facebook adventures. I even bullied talked him into a picture! I have to admit he was much taller in person than I imagined.



I hope we didn't overwhelm him and drive him off forever. LOL! We're all so glad to finally meet him!

How exciting. I said no on your survey even though I know one of the people I follow but we have been friends for years and didn't meet on the blog.

That is very cool that you met. And I agree that is a great picture. I haven't met any of my blogger friends in real life but some day I will meet you and Mandy (I feel like I know you guys so well) and then I can have a MIRL friend! LOL.

I think Delilah's right! We should all get together some day! It would be interesting! I could always tell her stories of a younger Jake if we run out of things to talk about! LOL
It was really neat to meet our MIRL friend!

You did overwhelm and bully me, and I'll be back next year for more, Heather. I even dropped my bike rushing to meet Sis, Mandy, Ernie, Jason, and Maddox. Can there be a greater sacrifice for friends? :)

No, I didn't forget about Kristy and Chros....just some special thoughts that are difficult to put into words in a comment is all.
