Maryland Blogger: ActiveRain MeetUp with Fred Dorsey

ActiveRain MeetUp with Fred Dorsey

ActiveRain MeetUp with Fred Dorsey


I received a message from Fred Dorsey at Douglas Realty in Rockville, Maryland asking if we could meet for coffee. Instead of coffee, I invited him to meet for the happy hour and wine tasting at Pinky & Pepe's Grape Escape in Kentlands. Chef Dolores joined us and took this photograph.

Fred had some questions and I shared my experience. I hope you will follow Fred Dorsey and add you encouragement for him to be an active blogger.

I'm glad you and Fred Dorsey had an opportunity to meet up, Roy.  I'm glad Dolores was able to snap the picture.

He's someone I am not familiar with here in the Rain, but how nice of Chef Delores to take this photo so other members can meet him...

Roy, so nice to hear Fred reached out to meet up with you.  Happy hour does sound better than coffee!

 I like your thinking I rather meet for Happy Hour than coffee as long as it is in the afternoon in the morning it has to be coffee.
