When I found out that Ronman lived just a few miles from my parents, I knew that I would have to meet him while in Tennessee. Unfortunately my family kept me so busy that I wasn't sure if I would be able to. Ronman was sweet enough, or crazy enough, to come to my parents house so that we would be able to at least hang out for a little bit. I thought that was really cool, because honestly, I don't know that I would be comfortable going to some strange house (and my family is very strange) to meet somebody that I didn't even know.
Ronman was exactly how I thought he would be. He is just an awesome guy, and had no problem hanging out with me and my family just shooting the bull. I did feel kind of bad, because my family acted like they haven't had company in years. Not in a bad way, but I think my dad told about a hundred stories about this and that, and Ronman was polite enough to listen to them.
And then my crazy niece (who I love more than life) went into her high school drama queen mode. Actually I think she might have a little crush on Ron, but don't tell her I said so. :)
All in all it was really great to meet one of my favorite bloggers, even if the visit was too short. Ronman is definitely a genuine guy and somebody who I feel fortunate to now call a friend. I will be keeping in touch and look forward to seeing him next time I am in Tennessee, and I will make sure that we get to go on a ride next time. I wish I would have taken more pictures, I'm kicking myself for that now, but next time.
Ronman, thank you so much for coming to see me. It was such a pleasure to meet a true gentleman as yourself.
And just a side note... if there are any single women out there looking for a decent guy, I would have to say that Ronman would be quite the catch! (Sorry Ron, just had to say it)
