When you’re in Shopsmart and you show up at the check-out stand with 6 boxes of turkey oven bags and a pack of Lifesavers, you’re kind of telegraphing yourself.
Just in case you care.
In Rio Dell this afternoon. A very nice afternoon to meet the physical incarnations of local online personalities. Carol and Greg have some shots.
Thanks to Ekovox and Joel for putting together a great event.
Addendum: So, it was great meeting Rose, Fred, Monica, Tom S., Ekovox, and others for the first time. I just missed meeting Richard Marks, which was a bummer. He had to leave for a softball game and I wasn’t there until after 1:00. A few brought their significant others, and it seems almost universal that our spouses/partners think we’re nuts for embarking on these things. I didn’t catch his name, but there was a very nice reporter from the Beacon who didn’t even know what a blog is but read Nathan Rushton’s story and decided it was worth covering.
Oh, and I caught this photo of Heraldo enjoying some melon just before he left.
Addendum: Speaking of Heraldo, he’s got some great coverage of yesterday’s McCain/Palin rally in Eureka.
Second addendum: Monica was the youngest of this older crowd, and I wonder if our average age wasn’t the highest of any blogger gathering anywhere. Isn’t blogging supposed to be a young person’s sport? She was live blogging the event with her blackberry. Let’s all thank John McCain.
Beachcomber also has some fun photos from the event. I just realized they aren’t on my list!
And Ekovox has a comprehensive write-up.
