    Default Just back from London

    I have not had time to sort through all of my photos or type up my travel journal just yet, but I wanted to post up a photo of one of our forum members I was able to meet while in London last week.

    Here is the very beautiful and super-fun, Kerry!

    We had such a wonderful time speaking with her. She came to meet us and we went for coffee & tea at a nearby cafe. We talked for 4.5 hours, got to see her recent orchid purchases, and planned to meet again. Both Louis and I wanted to meet her other-half, Tom, after hearing so many funny stories about him. We never got a chance with the busy tour schedule to meet up with Kerry again, but I know I have another friend for life.

    Kerry, you are most welcomed to come and visit us here! It was wonderful to meet you!! I look forward to the next time we can meet. Of all the reasons I love having this orchid forum, I think I love meeting the wonderful people of our community most!

    Cheers,
    BD

    You are too kind!

    I think I can safely say that the feeling was reciprocated, and it was fantastic to meet someone that I have been slowly getting to know online.

    Watch out Arkansas!
