I've been waiting for weeks for this day.  Some of you may have Friggatriskaidekaphobia  (Fear of Friday the 13th), but on this day, I absolutely did not. 

Our meeting has been mentioned in some of the comments around ActiveRain.  Plans were made; emails sent; a final phone call to firm things up.  The three of us would meet.  Nothing to hide.  We're all adults.  We had a small window of opportunity, so the three of us had to be on time. 

It's almost noon and I'm hoping my GPS (I call her Daphne) was right.  I'd never been to this place but I knew it had to be close.  "Bear right on Wilton Manors Drive". ......  "Arriving at destination on right"  .......  I see colorful balloons and an outdoor patio.  There it it.. Rosie's Bar & Grill.   

Rosie's Bar & Grill                 

 

I'm out of the car and I see two figures sitting at the bar, their backs to me.  One I'd already met, another I felt like I'd known forever. His back was towards me, but I would have known him anywhere....

Roger Mucci and Linca Scofield

                                                                                        Roger Mucci and Linda Scofield

Three ActiveRain Stagers sitting around eating Fish 'n Chips and guess what we talked about!  Yes, you're right, Staging was mentioned.  But more than that we got to know the person behind the post.  If you've been at ActiveRain at all for the last few months then you're sure to have read Roger's blog about his mother, his life and his Home Staging and Redesign business, Shaken with a Twist.  Needing a much deserved break, Roger flew down to Ft Lauderdale yesterday for a visit with his brother, Tony, and Linda and I were eagerly looking forward to meeting him. Roger minces no words, but I'm glad he doesn't.  Political Correctness is highly over-rated.

I'd met Linda Scofield a few months earlier when we decided to form an informal "group" to help support each other as we strive to build and grow our Home Staging and ReDesign businesses. Linda's company, Above and Beyond Home Staging and Redesign is one county south of me but she also provides staging services in her home town of Toccoa, GA.  I have to admire Linda because she is an example of a new business owner getting out there and networking in her community through her local Chamber of Commerce. 

So, there you have it!  My first ActiveRain Meange a Trois.  I wrote a post last week about picking up the phone and not relying strictly on email or Tweets.... Reach Out and Touch Someone.   I know many of you already have met other ActiveRainers when you're on your travels.  For those of you who haven't had the opportunity, I encourage you to try it just one time.  Who knows .... you may like it!

Lunch with Roger, Linda and Kathy
