I first met Jamie about 3-1/2 years ago, when she was first getting on Xanga. She messaged me about how to do something on Xanga, and we found out we only lived about 3 minutes or so, from each other. They were getting ready to move, and were selling a bunch of furniture, so I bought some of it for Brandon and Rachael, since they were getting married. Brandon and Rach bought her dining room set, which sits proudly in their house now. (Tomorrow is their 3rd anniversary already!)
This is Jamie (Jamie, I had to swipe a pic from you because I did not have one…)
I am not sure how many of our Xanga friends we have met. Most recently we met Chet (clintspirations) yesterday, and Gabe (gabrielpeter) back in October. Their pictures are in the previous post.
I metRenee (carrensey) 2 years ago in October at a memorial service for her husband’s aunt. This is me with Renee. Please keep in mind I’ve lost a lot of weight since then . That flame-stitch shirt I was wearing was one of my favorites, but I finally had to give it way because it was falling off of me :
We met Connie(daisymae81) and Christy (xiolagood) for the first time in September 2006, at a meeting of Xanga friends in Texarkana. Here’s the gang from that trip (Steve was there, but he was taking the pictures):
Then there’s Paula(heyheypaula). We first met her in July 2007, when we traveled to Decatur, TX for her husband’s funeral. Paula has since been down here twice, once last December and then for Gabe’s concert in October. She’s a special lady. During that trip to Decatur (where we also saw Connie again, along with Debbie, whose Xanga name I can’t remember), we also met Paula’s daughter, Paula-Beth (w4lucy) and her husband Michael, and Michael’s parents Kenett and Larry. We also met Larry’s mom, Joan. And we met Paula’s sister-in-law, Merrilee. They have all had Xangas, but I think most use Facebook more often now.
These are the Xangans that were present at that funeral service:
(cr1213) is my aunt, Carolyn.
I have not actually met Derek (MPBOY229), but Bethany has. They have been friends for years.
And who can forget Melissa (MelissaMurr)? She and her family drove down from the Dallas area in March 2007, for a vacation, and they met us at a Mexican Food restaurant near out house. Melissa is the sister of Christy (xiolagood). This is me with Melissa:
Have I forgotten anybody?
