Cheers to my Twinks from Paradise

This is a pic of the first time Kath and I ever met after a three year friendhip on-line. Anne and I were working a convention in Tampa and Kath drove over from the East Coast. She has since moved to the West Coast and lives only a couple of blocks from the Kipster in St. Pete.
I've made the best friends on CKMB on the old board and just want to acknowledge that without that mb (the old one) what a bunch of us found, friendship, could not have happened as fast elsewhere. Many of us go way back to at least 5 years ago with the Scrappin Sisters of Ohio, Pete and Moni. I've visited them twice and they've been to see me. We've cyber cropped and had so many good laughs and crys! Then Anne, Janet and Kath joined in. We had the Early Birds and Shar, the Night owls for my insomnia. The Cabana Boy cyber parties on the mb rocked and rolled and the very last one we hosted broke all records for number of posts ever (and still to this day) at CKMB and that includes the license posts and reposts and more Many of us have served on DTs together, met in real life and hang out on msn on a regular basis. Darla and Shar, Teri, Linda, Cindy, Tami, Cam, Jillybean, Mae, Jan, Audrey, Jill (who is my CHA pal along with Janet), Janet Planet, Kelli, Karen, Maria, Gail,Wendy, Z, Sue, Pam, Yvonne, Cat, Julie,Maggie, Nic, Robin, Cheryl ,Helen, Ruth, T, Amy, Peggy and on and on (If I left off your name it was not for lack of trying...please add yourself here and know I love you! I'm old, ok?) These women and many others from the mb have made my life richer and fuller and have added to me by the nature of their being.

Kath, this is for you. You, my Twinks, are a wonder. And I have to agree with janet M...we are damn cute girls! Posted by Picasa

I love you too Jules! When I first joined the ckmb I honestly never thought I would make real friends. I thought, how could you make a friend through a message board and with someone you may never meet in person. I was so wrong! I have made several. Some I was lucky enough to meet face to face, and others not yet, but hopefully in the future. It is a shame the atomosphere on the ckmb has changed, but they can't take away the friends I have already made!!

Cindy said...

It's nice to learn more about how your friendship with Kath has evolved!!! I sure do consider you all my friends and like Jill I would have never thought that even possible few years ago!!! The CKMB is just a place and what we all have is so much more than that!

Kath said...

Awwwwwwww!!! I'm so honored, twinks! This is just too too sweet of you. I am the one who is such a lucky girl to be a part of this group. You guys make my day worth living. HUGS, Kath

OH good hell, you made me CRY JULES!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you though, thank you for reminding me of what the CKMB DID DO for me and my beloved friends, whom I would have never met had it not been for that place. I have been so bitter the past few days and so quick to jump up and yell out how peeved and hurt I was that I did in fact forget to be thankful. Thank you for humbling me Jules and thank you SO MUCH for being my friend and sister and for loving me for who I am. You are special in ways you will never even know. XOXOXOXO


Shar said...

Cheers, my friend. Isn't it amazing how dear people can become having never met in person.

Loves to you too!!

Tami said...

Love you Jules! You are such a sweet lady, and I adore and cherish all the friendships I have with you all!

Adding my name and sending some more love out. You are right, if only I could express what knowing you and the other EBs have meant to me. No words left. As for Kath, she is just one of the most loveliest people I have cyberly met. You all rock in my world.
