    I know we did this thread already a while back, but I was new to the board and didn't know anyone yet! I figure there's probably plenty of other new members since then too.

    I would love to spend a day with Lord Helpus - I would learn so much. The Spruce Meadows experience would be great to share with Kachoo. Who wouldn't want to spend a weekend of beer-drinking and horse-flipping with those crazy eventers? I'd love to meet Coreene and Oliver, and it would have been a gift from God to meet Willem. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/sadsmile.gif

    DMK, Robby Johnson, Jair, Nikita, Spot, Merry, Beezer, Bumpkin... There are plenty more that I'll think of later!

    So, who would you most like to meet?

    Robby Johnson, OneonOne (*grin*), Kachoo (in hopes that her excellent writing skills would rub off on me), War Admiral, and everybody in the draftie-x and adult pony riders clique http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    Oh yes, War Admiral (and Avery too)! She was in my original list before my post dissappeared into the abyss that is cyberspace!

    I have this story to share... entitled Why Meeting Kachoo Can Be Hazardous To Your Social Skills...

    Walking around (being walked ON http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_mad.gif) Spruce with Samson, we come across Kachoo, with her (super nice) parents, and another man, whom she introduces as Erick Schmuck (sp?).
    Well, immediatly my super mature and sophisticated brain begins yelling The Schmuckster!!!!
    I swear, it was all I could do to shut up the brain (ala Homer Simpson) and greet him properly!!!

    Also seem to recall getting trapped into an argument in front of everybody about getting stepped on/not stepped on in front of everybody.. very very very embarrased about that, and wish to apologize to everyone involved!!

    OneonOne, I'm so flattered! And PlanetBob, I would have paid to see that!

    Oliver and I were so fortunate to meet two BBers recently - both Vivababy and Tarynls were in So Cal and they both came to the barn! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif Viva and I went to a fun fun fun dinner at The Crab Cooker and Tarynls and Mr Tarynls and I went to BJ's Chicago Brewery (which is where we went when Dublin and Mr Dublin were in town as well http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/sadsmile.gif).

    SoEasy was here in May - the Beezer / Merry / SoEasy / Coreene lunch was quite astounding, given that there was a transvestite at the next table and I, for one, never did figure out if it was a he or a she. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif

    I wish there was a big place within driving distance that we could all meet up at. Merry could bring her blender.

    Meeting BBers is great. Finding out that they are at your barn and you had no idea is a blast!

    I want to meet everyone. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

    Wow, my list would be huge and I know I'm going to leave some people out but here goes. These are the folks I'd love to meet because of their wisdom, knowledge, sense of humor, and because I admire them. Here goes in no particular order.

    Coreene (and of course Oliver), Robby, War Admiral, LoriO, Mizzwade, Kachoo, EqTrainer, Rumours Follow, DMK, Duffy, Fairweather, Merry, MrsMouse, RolexH, Sonesta, Spot, Fred...I know I'm leaving some out. When I think of them, I'll post them.

    Applesauce, some of those people are local to you! We used to do get togethers with some regularity, but of late they have dropped off.

    Perhaps another one is due?

    Not that anyone wants to meet me ; ), but I rarely turn down an invitation to either Magpies or Mosby's.

    Meeting Coreene and Oliver was such a blast! Hope to get my next trip planned in a couple months. Hopefully late spring or early summer. We'll have to go the the Cooker again!

    I've also met a couple of the BB'ers who refered me to the stable we're boarding in now. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif And there are a couple I need to get off my duff and get in touch with as promised since I moved...ack...7 months ago. (Where's the blushing smilie?)

    I hope that LOTS AND LOTS of BBers will be here in January for the AHSA meeting. I can only guess how wild this is going to be!

    I have met FairWeather and Treat Wench since joining COTH. I knew CarlyAnne and bambam before I joined, and I can never forget asterix, whom I blame for getting me addicted in the first place. I like COTH partly because I can use http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_razz.gif icons while giving asterix a hard time. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_razz.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif

    This poster seems to have an extremely high I.Q. and is always very techically correct in his (her?) posts.

    In the Columbia disaster thread, I was glued to this poster's comments and insights into the situation.

    What a neat job he/she must have!

    Blushing here.

    I have met Erin at Fox Ridge ( even though it was brief and fleeting) but would love her and anyone at the COTH to make their presence better known when at the show. There is room for one more at dinner.

    All the crazy Calif clan, correene et al for a dinner out at the cantina

    Kachoo ditto for the writing tips

    ETBW for FOOD tips

    Robby to show me once and for all how to sew in a button, I am no good at pictures. Need that one on one contact.

    Jair because he is a fellow scientist Geek ( even though he pretends to be cool eh)

    MattS because he seems to be eligible

    Anyone who notices the wonders around them, the Bird Nurd Clique and RAyers because perhaps someday I can hit him up for a job.
