Friends are Great by Cher’ley

Del and I had a wonderful visit with a fellow WW&W, Mike Staton. I don’t know what his plans for the day were but he reminded me of this poem by Robert Frost:

A Time to Talk

By Robert Frost

When a friend calls to me from the road
And slows his horse to a meaning walk,
I don’t stand still and look around
On all the hills I haven’t hoed,
And shout from where I am, ‘What is it?’
No, not as there is a time to talk.
I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,
Blade-end up and five feet tall,
And plod: I go up to the stone wall
For a friendly visit.


Del and Mike:                           Mike and Me:

Friends are a wonderful treasure. I cherish each of mine the ones I have known for a long time and the ones I have met online. It is exciting to meet one of our online friends in person. I have known

My hope is to meet each of my fellow bloggers in person, and I’d love to meet many more of my online friends in person.

  1. Great post, Cherley, and a wonderful segway to the one I’ve scheduled for Friday. I wish we would have had opportunity to meet during these past few years. I’m grateful to know Neva, Abbie, Mike, and Doris, and I hope to meet more Wranglers in the future. Happy trails, my online friend!

  2. Would love to meet each of our online friends. I know Gayle and Abbie but would love to know everyone. I do feel we are friends already just because of our blogs that give glimpses of our minds and hearts I believe. And what a wonderful bunch we are!


    1. Neva, We are a wonderful group. I have drawn support, love, and encouragement from you, and my other friends on here. Maybe next summer when we get loads up your way, and we will meet. But in the meantime, my friends on here are my best friends. Love Ya, Cher’ley


  3. Thanks for the great write-up, Cherley. Being in Henderson, I do get to meet friends, both online ones and those I know in person. For example, besides you and Del, I’ve met Nancy and her family, and Gayle. I got together with Gary Scott, my editor at the Duplin Times in North Carolina, and his wife Debbie. I also got together with Cam McLemore, a friend I met in Duplin County. He and his wife now live in Las Vegas.


    1. Mike, I think you’re right about your location. Del and I enjoyed our time with you. It was just too short. Maybe there will be another time. You have been blessed to meet so many online friends, and you have been a blessing to us all. In the meantime we will encourage and support each other online. Cher’ley


  4. It’s easy for me to think that I live so far away from the other WW&Ws that I’m not really likely to meet many of them but a lot of you are far flung across the states, as well. Meeting Mike for just a very short time was a highlight of my US visit last August! Don’t know when I’ll be back to the US again but it’s a lovely thought to touch base with online friends.


  5. I tend to meet on line friends in person by surprise. I was at the WV Writers conference and a B friend came over and introduced herself. That was a surprise. At a booksigning I was greeted by another on line friend , we chatted fro a few minutes and I now have a face to go with the name on the screen.

    As for fellow bloggers, you are the only one I have met in person, so far.
