WHY I LOVE MY ONLINE FRIENDS

by Mary Kennedy                          
 
I have friends I've never met (in person, that is) but they are dear, treasured people who are so important in my life.  What do I love about them? Let me count the ways.
 
1. They let me post as many cat pictures as I want and never seem to get tired of them (or they're too polite to say so!)
                                                             
 
2. They allow me to rhapsodize over places I've been, places I'd like to go back to, and my endless pining for Ft. Lauderdale and the ocean...
                                                           
                                    
                                                   
...and my love affair with Paris.  My son took this photo of the Eiffel Tower and I'm understandably proud of it...                                        
 
3. We share a love of books...
                                                          
 
 
4. Especially mysteries...                
 
 
5. We love great food and cooking...
                                                          
 
6.  We love dogs... (this is Duncan, Fred Yoder's adorable pup, all decked out to withstand another Indiana winter) 
                                                          
 
7  We share similar ideas on how to spend our time...
 
 
8. And of course, we have a sense of humor. Because after all, what would life be like without a few laughs now and then? I can't even imagine it! Here's a photo of a cat cooking, (something you don't see too often, and I'm sure the Board of Health wouldn't approve, but hey, it's a cute photo.)
 
 
How about you, do you have precious online friends who add so much joy to your life that you just can't imagine not having them? I bet you do!
