Well Jill, here is your own interest group now. Welcome to the egotistical side of myLot. J/K. I had to start this group as Jill never knew we could start our own categories etc in our interests. We have knwon each other on myLot for a year or so. And Sunday we finally met. My daughter, also a myLot member, met her as well. My wife came along as did Jills sister. We had a great dinner/lunch. We chatted for a few hours as well. A great time had by all today. Thank you Jill for the gifts as well. What a sweet thought and great gift that fits me to a tee. Discussion abiout that soon to come. Have you gotten any gifts from an online friend at all? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I think it is cool that you guys met. I have never met anyone I have met on myLot or gotten any gifts from them, but there are several people that I have met on line that I have also me in person. I have gotten quite a few little gifts from some of them.

I got a basket full of Clean Linen scented Yankee candles in the mail once. It was a giant candle and 4 votive candles and 2 votive holders from a friend in Ohio. I got a hand poured gel candle from someone else in Indiana. I had a lady from the other side of Missouri bad me a braclet with beads that she made herself. I got a cute picture frame with an angel on it from a friend in Tennessee. The same friend from Tennessee also sent my son about $100 worth of brand new clothes a few summers ago. He had his summer wardrobe all set after that one.

How fun for you guys to get to do this. I bet you had a great time. The pictures are nice, thanks for sharing them with us. No, I have never received a gift from a myLot friend. I will watch for the discussion you start about it.

I also get hyped getting BRs here. I seldom thank them though other than in a discussion thanking all members/friends. Too many is why. You are very special in a lot of myLotters eyes. Don't you ever forget that. Thanks bunches as well friend. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

That is great that you all got to meet one another. I am also happy that everything went well for all of you too. I think it is neat that you started and interest group for you all too. I hope you don't mind me replying to it right now. That was very sweet of your Mylot friend to give you some gifts. I wish all people could be that kind in the world these days.

Never did unless one of my friends goes to my church and I do not know if she is a member of mylot or not. Certainly she did not join under my referrel link and since I live in a big city, there are so many here that I do not know. I suppose with others it is safe to have an online friend know you in person, but with me it is not. Not that I would harm them, heavens forbid, but I do have a bit of a past.

One of my friends won a guitar once and sent it to me. Another was culling his collection and sent me a beautiful little backpacker electric guitar. These friends are very dear to me, I've known them (but never met them) for ten years! I really treasure these two guitars and the love that went into the gifts.

I am so glad you had such a great time meeting Jill from mylot. I am glad that the gift she got you fits like a tee. I am assuming it was a play on words. heehee. I have not gotten a gift from a mylottian except a phone call which is wonderful to me. I have sent a gift to a friend when she was having some problems. I wanted her to know she was loved and appreciated.

It's so wonderful you got to meet a friend from MyLot GB. I have some friends here that i wish i could meet, but our locations hinders that process. So for now we carry on our friendship through e-mails, which is nice. I've not gotten a gift from any online friends,but i value the gift of their friendship. {{{HUGS}}}
