There are really no words to describe the nervousness and anxiety felt when attending an event such as this, even with people you interact with every day. Your perception of what people look like, who they are and where they came from, are usually far from what you imagined.
Quite honestly, things started with a few hiccups, flight delays, etc., but it ended as one of the best weekends I have had in a long time. I hope that I made life long friends with this group of people, because it would certainly be an honor.
I found all of them charming, engaging and incredibly intelligent people, I was amazed at how easily we were able to converse on every topic known to man, without skipping a beat. Will, Brenda and Scott, kept me in stitches and at times, unable to breathe from laughing so hard. I can never thank them enough for indulging me with their presence. I have to say, because I had never seen a picture of Ron, that he was nothing as I imagined, although he is unassuming, but humorous on the vine, he impressed us all with his wealth of knowledge and ability to talk about virtually anything discussed, his simplistic comments and articles on the vine, do not do him justice, as he is extremely eloquent and knowledgeable on a number of topics, plus.... he has one of the coolest guitars my son, or I have ever seen.
The rules for Vegas apply here as well... what happened at VineMeet, stays at VineMeet... if you wanted to know all the juicy details, you should have been there to live them :L)
I am exhausted from the weekend, but to each of you, Brenda, Scott, Will and Ron, thank you from the bottom of my heart for one of the best weekends of my life.
