This past Thursday, thanks to my good friend Ed Silva, I had the pleasure to MeetUp with the one and only Carol Williams . I doubt there is any ActiveRain member, who is regularly on ActiveRaian, that does not know Carol. Carol is also one of the regular Weekly ActiveRain ZOOM Meeting attendees, and contributor.
When Carol made it know she was going to be within a short distance of CT while on her cross country road trip, Ed reached out to her about meeting up with her. Carol not only agreed, but she even changed her plans, and drove to CT. Ed than reached out to a few of us who regularly attended the past MeetUps in CT, many of which were hosted by Dagny Eason.
Ed than arranged for us to MeetUp at a small Middle Eastern Restaurant called Kibberia. This was the first time those in attendance, not only had the pleasure of Meeting Carol in person for the first time, it was also the first time most of us were treated to Middle Eastern food.
In attendance was Grant Schneider and his wife Phyllis (seated), myself, Dagny Eason, Carol Williams, and Ed Silva. The food was excellent, but the company and conversation was even better. It was as if all of us were use to meeting in person on a regular basis.
Before Carol headed out to MeetUp with Hannah Williams in Philadelphia, and us wishing her a safe trip, there were lots of laughs and hugs which make these MeetUps even more special. This MeetUp with Carol, also started a conversation about having another old time MeetUp at Dagny's house later this year. I am hoping Dagny can pull it off, it would be great of see everyone again.
