Hi guys and Gals

Just thought I would share as I have a few minutes to spare this evening

My last post that I shared on Facebook has put me back in contact with a great friend whom I lost contact with.

It has been thirty years since we last met (in Canada actually) where we were working together in the same company and then he got divorced and moved away to a different part of Canada and I moved back to UK and so we lost touch

But my blog on face book caught his interest and I got a letter from him and now we are back in contact once again.

So as I said it is funny how a blog can work sometimes

All good fun


Paul

Yes, this is a nice story. It happened to me too and this is in fact for me one the most important aspect of those social medias. How to take care of friends despite any geographical distance. Thank you for sharing and have a happy day.

That is a great story. Social Media does work for connecting or reconnecting old friends or family members.

That's one of the great things about social media. I have found the greatest connection to my "old" friends.

Nice to hear from you Paul!

As they say, what goes around, comes around (or is it the reverse?). Anyway, friends are for life. Even after 30 years!

Glad to hear y'all reconnected!!!

Take care,

Blogging is our friend, that's for sure. Keeps us plugged into the rest of the outside world and in turn, allows old friends and acquaintances to stay connected throughout the years. Gotta love that!

Its so nice to know how facebook and blogging helped you connect with long lost friend. Internet is the best invention after a wheel and electricity. Best luck Sir.

Hello Paul, that is so nice to hear and I am so pleased that you have been able to make contact again.

Hope you are well and still collecting plenty mushrooms and raspberries (especially for my jam, remember to leave the seeds in though lol).

How is my favourite boy at WA doing, have been missing seeing his pictures. xxxx
