The Perks of Blogging

One of the funnest things about blogging is getting to meet the people you only know through their words and "avatars". Yesterday James the Thickheaded, whose hilarious yet pointed stream of conciousness Rorschachianesque blog and comments here have mystified readers, was in Phoenix for a last minute conference.  I juggled my work and he graciously bought me lunch.  The two hours together was way too short.

My wife said, "Get a picture of you guys together!  I want to see who that is who writes like that."  So we had the receptionist at the hotel take our picture.

I think we should have a National Orthodox Christian Bloggers convention in Sedona. :)

I don't get it. There's nothing "thick" on that head.

Ah, a merciful photographer. I have no reason not to believe this story, other than it's got a little don't askish, don't tellish tinge to it.

Anon5:12 I think the photographer did say something like "Hands up!" :)

Where's Sedona? Will Moo attend?

I'm glad you got to have lunch together, and the photo is perfect.

Margaret, Sedona is a couple hours north of Phoenix. I posted some pictures a couple months ago

Unfortunately Moo gets carsick and we'd all be dead before he walked there.

For the sake of Moo, we should go further south and make it as easy as possible on his poor old shell. :)

Hey Steve... thanks again!

And I did want to say for the record, the puzzle my once-two-year-old daughter struggled with many years ago after identifying that "Mom has... brown hair", "Brother has... brown hair", and what's dad got? "A head". So I'm Thickheaded... not haired. Least until I plant some corn rows. We're thinking: "Maybe wheat would work better!"
