Thanks for posting that Debra - too true! It's funny, because I was just thinking those exact same things when I was taking my dog for his very short walk this morning (it was pouring rain here, no I'm not a meanie!).
I have met some wonderful people online and I just KNOW that if we met in real life, we'd be friends forever! In this day and age, the way social media and the web has been injected into our lives, I just think it's the "way things are" now. Not like when we were younger. Heck, I'd never have met any of you if this was 20 years ago!
Great post and touche!
