Well, I think that the first comment Toni left in this space was back on July 17, 2003, and he started his own blog on August 19, 2003.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Today Toni, his good wife Chris and his son Ben, came to our house for a visit.
This here Internet thing is quite cool. (Because they live in England.)
Now if we can just find a husband for my sister...
Ben, Thomas, Micah, Lauralea, Chris, and Toni.
You know there is always some nervousness when you meet someone you've only known online and on the phone, but this nervousness melted away quickly as we connected with Toni and Chris.
They are who I thought they would be. Warm, gracious, caring, and sensitive people. And Ben, who I've had only limited contact with, turns out to be easy to connect with, especially on things gaming... :)
So, the internet can be a cool place to meet people.
Don't believe ALL the hype.
