The original Tampa Bay area "get together" thread was created in July 2012 after a great group of BCO sisters met for lunch. This is a new thread intended to carry on our tradition of support, companionship, fun, and camaraderie - as often as we can all get together! We welcome familiar faces and new friends alike - if you have found this thread and wish to join us - please do!

Here is the link to the previous thread - it contains a lot of love, and we thank MondaysChild for her leadership and management of our "get togethers" to date.

Hi,

I had breakfast with Phyllis this week and she told me about the date so I am checking in. Is Wiregrass a great shopping place??? Seems I heard about it once... may be a different place...? Anyway, I have to wait until the 8th to know if I can come as I am trying to sell my house and it seems that I get calls on Friday for people to see on Saturday. So, for me it will be last minute although I would like to come.

So.....maybe! I will check with Phyllis too.

mysunshine - we would love to see you and Phyllis - last minute is fine, no worries! Wiregrass is a shopping center set up as an open air shopping/dining arrangement, with smaller versions of Macy's, Dillard's and Penney's along with lots of other shops and restaurants. It is on the same street (State Road 56) as the new Prime Outlets in Wesley Chapel - they are about 3.5 miles apart. I-75 runs across SR-56 between the two centers, and the restaurant is easy to find and there is a fair amount of parking.

I'm afraid the timing of the next time won't hit right for me. At the end of August, I'm moving for an indefinite period of time to Oregon. A family matter has arisen and one of my Sisters that has done far more than merely help me during my Son's life needs help now. Since I'm the only other one that's single, off I go.

Even if I find a new group out there, it will NEVER be the same as this group. Some of you have been with me from almost Day One of the BC journey.
