Who says you can’t make real friends on Facebook! I’ve certainly have made a few. One of these is a great lady named Melanie.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, we have a little land in upstate NY where we hope to build a home someday. It has nothing on it but meadow, trees and a beautiful stream. Progress is slow and money is tight so anything we can do to move things along feels like we’re getting closer.
On a recent visit to our lot we were wonderfully surprised by a visit from Melanie, a fascinating lady I had come to know through Facebook. Our initial contact was through a phone call to her regarding our concerns about fracking in NY. We found her on Facebook and she’s not far from out lot!!!
Not only did she stop by our camper unexpectedly when we went camping, she took some chairs out of her car and hung out with us. That was truly awesome! We had no address, no house, nothing! She must have had some psychic connection, homing device, or something 🙂
I realize this post is longer than I usually write so I’ll try and wrap it up.
We recently had the Dept of Highways build an entrance for a driveway on our land so we can drive our camper up the top of the hill. Because we actually live over 250 miles away, we couldn’t run up there to check it out. I asked Melanie to please look at it and take photos if she was driving through the area. She did, and we are overwhelmed with gratitude 😀
Not knowing how else to thank her, I made her the silver earrings at the top of this page. I liked them so much I made a similar pair for myself (or for sale, haven’t decided yet).
