Meeting an Old Friend for the First Time

The Internet has been an important part of my life for a long time. There's a story there, but it can wait for another time. Today, Jim and I met an old friend - for the first time. We've known him for a few years. In fact, we meet him every Wednesday evening to get together along with several other friends. We meet in an online game and play together for several hours. There are about a dozen of us who belong to this group. We don't all meet every week, but there's a good variety who meet most weeks.

These are mainly old friends of my husband. I'm the token girl in the group. At one point, they all lived here (except for one). Though their lives and careers have taken them to various other parts of the map, they meet once a week to play a game, insult each other the way guys do, and catch up.

The friend we met today went to high school here and was one of the other guy's college roommate. He left the area before Jim moved here. The one who never lived here went to college with Jim about an hour and a half north of here.

There's a very special story about today, but it has to wait for the pictures to arrive.

This is what I love about the Internet. You may move away, but you're never gone.
