Thankful # 22: I’m thankful for Facebook! In 2007 I was in charge of planning a reunion for my church in Grass Valley. I spent one whole year looking for people and their addresses. I sent out hundreds of letters and emails, and spent hours and hours on the phone! I found most of the people I was looking for. It just took hundreds of hours, and it cost me a lot of money in phone calls, paper, envelopes, stamps and ink for the printer. The end of 2008 my daughter and son in law talked me into signing up for Facebook. I started my search for some friends, and in a week I had more than 100 friends. Over the next 7 years I have found old school friends, church friends, Steamer friends, my brother Stan’s friends, my sister Val’s friends and my brother Ralph’s friends! Through my music I have met a lot of new friends, who I really enjoy chatting with on Facebook! It’s been so much fun catching up with old school friends. I have gotten to know a lot of people from my class who I didn’t know very well. My favorite part of Facebook was being able to visit with Judy Pingree who recently passed away. My chats with Hal Vaughn who just passed away. All my wonderful conversions I had with Cathie Robinson who just passed away. Everyone knows that I enjoy posting music on Facebook! If you have time, listen to the song, and if you like it, hit the like button and or leave a short comment. The likes and comments always make my day. When Kim and I moved to Washington in 1990, we lost track of all our friends. Now with Facebook, Kim and I stay in touch with a lot of our friends! Just think of all the time and money I could have saved, if I had Facebook when I was planning that reunion! I’m thankful for all you good people that are friends with me on this thing they call Facebook!
