Yes, it happened - It really happened!
Lotus Land bloggers met in The West End and as Dave mentioned, the number involved could have doubled as a slow pitch softball team. The pitches involved at the table, though, were anything but slow! This group is as quick and witty in reality as they are in virtuality on the "internets".
Alison, Dave, David, Dana, Laura, Ross, Ian, Declan and myself all had a great time eating pizza and enjoying a few liquid refreshments. The best part was being able to put a face to the posts we've enjoyed for some time. (Sorry, due to a few bloggers in attendance publicity agent's restrictions, no photos of the participants are available. Royalty rights involved, you know. I was planning a "Match the Face to the Blogger" contest - with a million dollar prize - but that was nixed by the legal restrictions. Lawyers . . . . )
All in attendance had a good time, and a future gathering seems to be in order. Hope I'll be in town when it happens.
Many thanks to Alison for arranging the event, and special thanks to Ross for his table-top entertainment. The pizza pan used as a tambourine will be forever etched in my mind . . . .
