The coffee and the conversation flowed fast and free today, at an actual gathering of virtual acquaintances at the Harvest Caffe in Midland.
Those in attendance today were Eric of The Fireant Gazette, J.P. of Bleu Chocolate, Bob and Cherie of Ran With the Devil, Walked with the Angels, Wallace of Streams, Jeff of ArchaeoTexture and Janie of Sounding Forth. Also in attendance today was a friend and former co-worker of mine, Darrell Ward of KWES-TV (who would raise the bar of our craft considerably, if we could just get him blogging). Graphically in attendance was Jimmy of Sticky Doorknobs ..... if his character was called into question in his absence, he has no one to blame but himself.
I forgot to bring my camera along. Fortunately, John Trumbull was nearby (enjoying a chicken-and-pesto panini and an iced tea) and dashed off a quick sketch of us as we met.
We need to get together again, sometime ..... maybe on a weekend, as we had a couple of Odessa-Midland bloggers who couldn't attend on a weekday/workday.
