Hey Mylotters! Opal here! I've finally booked my flight and will be leaving NY on July 29th going to Ft. Lauderdale, FL! And I would love to meet up with some of my fellow mylotters who are in that vicinity! I have spoken to a few who have already expressed an interest in knowing when I would be coming down their way! So, I thought I would make this a discussion and see if I could find out who I could maybe meet while I'm there! I will be there until August 7th! And while I'm gone I will miss my friends here because I will have no internet connection! I am visiting my Mom! No computer there~

Hi Polly! I wish mylot admin would put a convention together! But, it still would be hard since we are from all over the globe!

Wow...you'll be meeting some mylotters there. It is great to be able to meet mylotters in person. I am sure you'll have a lot to tell us when you come back. So have a nice holiday. Will miss you Opal.

How nice! It's like hitting two birds in one stone. Meeting your mom and seeing another mylotter within the vicinity, that's great Opal.

Hey Opal! I'm in Jasper, Alabama, which is 43 miles northwest of Birmingham. Fort Lauderdale is in northeastern Florida, isn't it? I don't remember where it's located on the map exactly. Since you will be flying, I don't know how it will be possible for us to meet. Maybe we can work something out, though. It would be so nice to meet you, if we can! I'm so glad you finally booked your flight. I pray that you will have a safe trip and that you will have a nice visit with your mother. Kathy.

Hi Kathy! I wish we could meet! Maybe one day! I still owe you an email! Will send you one before I leave, I promise! Am nervous about the trip, not much of a flyer!

Yes, maybe someday. If you're ever in Birmingham in the future, maybe I can meet you there. The problem is, I don't have a very dependable car any more. If I go anywhere out of town, somebody will have to drive me. I really hate this because I've always considered myself to be independent. I've learned in the last few years that we all need help sometimes, though. Also, since I'm living on SSI now, I can't afford to travel right now. Kathy.

i think thats a tad bit. weird. you want to meet up with some people from online. i guess thats ok in a way. because your going to a state where you don't know anyone. and your hoping they might show you around. i did that only once. i was going to flordia as well and i remember one of myspace friends is from there. but she ended up leaving one city away. and she couldn't meet me. were just kids. so i hope you find a mylot to hang out with!

Hey tiffany, It's not weird, I actually have a few mylotter friends who live in Florida that have said that when they know that I'm going to be there that they would like to try to meet up with me! I am going there to see my Mother and one of my very close friends!

Tiffany, when you have known people a while on here, it is not that weird. I went to see a friend in Minnesota when I went to see my daughter and new grandbaby in June. It was a fun trip. It also gives us even more things in common.

Your mom may not have a computer, but there's always the library or internet caf├ęs... Have as good a time as you can.

Hey Barbara! I just may have to convince her to take a quick trip to the library! But, we have plenty of things that we will have to do and I'm going there to swim and get some sun so I hopefully will be busy enough!(Yeah right!)

Hey greenline! Well thank you and I will miss you too! I hate the thought of being without a computer for 10 days! But, I am going to see my Mom and am hoping to maybe meet up with a mylotter or two who might be close by! We'll see!

That's funny, I will also be in Florida next month, but from the 12th of August until the 19th, so we won't be seeing each other, though I will be in Destin, Florida anyway, so I don't think we would have haha. I am so excited to get to the beach and in the warm water! So much better than the Atlantic, which is so cold. But anyways, I hope you have a great trip, enjoy yourself!

Hey sugarplum! I hope you enjoy your trip too! I am hoping to get to the beach too! I have a good friend who lives near the beach that I am hoping to get to see! But where my Mom lives there is a pool just a few feet away from her house!

Hey bunny! I wish you still lived there too! Right now I have been checking on the weather there and it is just as lousy there as it is in NY! It is going to be thunderstorming the whole time I'm there and my plan was to get some suntime and swim! I see that this is not going to be good, but my tickets are non-refundable so I have no choice! Maybe we will get to meet someday! I do have relatives in Arizona, but I don't like them!

Hi jan! So far, no takers! I really don't know who lives in the area near my mother since Florida is so big! I'm really going to see my mom and get some sun and swim, although she keeps telling how lousy the weather is! Great! I'm going to miss being able to come here and of course miss my Star & Luna! Nine days is a long time.....Hugs, Opal

I'm taking the kids to Disney in October. That is going to be my very first time in FL. But I'm not excited. I foresee 5 days of screaming kids, heat, humidity, and having nightmares about large rodents. Try to have fun on your trip even without your computer. I love going away without mine. It truly is a vacation.

Hey cynical! I am the only "kid" that has never been to Disney still! My mom won't take me! (She's 79)! Your kids will love it! As for you, hmmmm.... October is a good time to go, except it is hurricane season! Have a wonderful time because it will be trip that you and your family will treasure always, and I envy you! Hugs, Opal

Hi gabs! So far no one from Florida has responded! I am more concerned about leaving my babies, Star & Luna! I will miss them so much! I know I will be crying every day and wanting to get home fast!

I do hope you get to meet a few of them! It's so much fun to connect with your friends from here and have the opportunity to speak to them face to face! I can't wait until I get another chance to meet another mylotter! We should have a big picnic sometime! LOL....we'll miss you while you are gone too!

Hey jill! I'm kind of getting worried! So far, no takers! I wish mylot would arrange some sort of convention, but it would be difficult still since so many of our friends are across the ocean! Nine days without mylot is going to be a real challenge for me!

Wolfie sniffs, not fair, most of my friends are too far away for me to see! I hope you have a wonderful time my dear friend, you sure deserve it, have fun and don't do anything I wouldn't do (he he he!) safe journey and I shall look forward to hearing all about it on your return. I shall be going away on 3rd August just for a week, I need the break to be by the ocean! Wolfie hugs x
