April, 2013 ActiveRain MeetUp Memories


I revisit some of my old blogs and reblogs on a regular basis. Sometimes, I find some good ideas for new posts. In April of 2013, I attended three MeetUps in one Virginia, Washington, DC and in Maryland. Good memories to recall!

Oh, 3 of my all-time favs, Roy! I miss Lenn Harley SO much - I do wish someone would keep us posted on her health. I worry about her often.

I did meetPatricia Kennedy and loved her spunk & humor - she's one of a kind, for sure! I miss her around AR too!

I miss the presence of Lenn, Pat and Fernando.  2013 was only 5 years ago, but in many ways it seems like a lifetime ago.
