Hi All:

I just wanted to say that Tracey and I were soooo pleased to meet Ted (TWT) from Lincolnton, GA and Ted's family. They spent the night with us, we got to drive around locally and see the Ocean Spray Cranberry Bog, etc.

It was way too short, but they likely will stop on the return trip for a night of steaks on the grill, should be a nice Friday Night.

Here is from our left to right: Beemaster (John) Kaitlyn, TWT (Ted) and Jessica in front of my new house (the tree that I keep promising to take picks of  :roll:
I hope they have a wonderful Lobster Festivale in Maine and see you guys soon!

Ted's got himself a nice looking family!

Its a shame that we don't see or hear about him as much as we could.

Take care Ted, travel safe with the family and take lots of pictures to keep the memories.

Boy just look at that devilish grin!!! :-D

Thanks for the pic John, BTW, you look good without the mustache, I shaved my beard but got stung on the chin 4 removals in a row, growing the beard back as we speak, it was keeping the veil just far enough off the face to keep their stingers at bay.

John, well isn't that just ding dang nice.  You are so fortunate to get together with our forum friends, that is a wonderful thing and what a great picture.  BUT.....

Now this is going to be funny or just plain and simply annoy SOMEONE terribly!!!  John, when I saw this picture I thought that you were just kidding me about this being Ted.  I have always got the impression that Ted was quite an elderly man (it must be that picture in his avitar), I see that he is actually only just a kid, hee, hee (sorry Ted, just had to say that thing). 

Ted, you have a beautiful family and your Daughter is gorgeous, hope you have the most wonderful time having that bbq with John and Tracey on Friday night, I'll be thinking of you all, as I sit here and think about cooking a dinner that I know, you all being three hours ahead will be just beginning to much.  Safe trip, have that most wonderful and beautiful day, Cindi

I do have THIS PHOTO Ken which I took :)

We are gonna take MORE photos on the return trip, so there will be many to see.

I know Ted will read this later (he has no PC in route) but I wanted to continue to say that how amazed I am at the intellectual skills of our FORUMS youth! These two girls Jessica and Catelyn (sic?) are polite Southern Girls, and smart and great conversationalist - of course I give my self credit for some of that, I'm great with kids and get tohem to open up quickly and we have fun and easy conversations when watching TV or eating :)

I've met MANY of the forums Kids: PDMattox's sons and daughter Austin, David and Emma. Likestogrill's Daughters and the long awaited Josh, son of Buzzbee and MaBuzzee - all of which I met the whole familys - and... There is a great meeting in the near future for many of the Southern Boys (mostly all Voice Chat Friend - if you don't use Ventrilo yet, you miss so much real friendships develop.

To think an Australian comes half way around the planet and we spend 4 incredible days together, what wonders this forum has conjured up :) There are many more meetings ahead - I have met all the forementioned and CWBees and of course GEOFF and now - TWT (I'll be honest, I was thinking that we would get to meet for some time, this trip to Maine for them really puts me 8 hours drive time toward home - it is a perfect stop for them, and I think we'll all go out to Freindlys for dinner (I swear the forum funds should at least pay the tip - lol) totally kidding.

So more to come about Ted's trip and vist, more photos too. I'll end saying that meeting all those who I have met and those I'll meet soon, it is an honor to have met you through the Forums, I truly treasure our friendships.



The entire TWT Family - added from the previous phot is Ted's wife Sheryl.

Ooops, apology.  I thought the female in the first picture was Ted's Wife, I see now that it was his other Daughter, beautiful family, can't wait to see more pictures.  Beautiful day, and a great life.  Cindi
