Jason and Pumpkin drove down the Five
Who wanted to meet to see just if
His real name was Jason, or Gordon, or Biff.
The Wicked Garden in Dana was the dinnertime spot
They ate as they chatted, and laughed quite a lot.
Each learned 'bout the other in new kinds of ways
How they live, what they do, how they pass through their days.
Jamie, oh Jamie, a beautiful teacher
Her students must love such a kind, funny creature.
Her twins? Ultra special. Darling. And cute.
And Jamie. Amazing. In a two-piece bathing suit.
Katy. Did not. Yet, yes, she did, too!
She told us about her job that she'll do
For quite a long time, 'cuz it makes people happy
Her blog is sarcastic. Her heart? Soft and sappy.
Then Cheri. A fighter for a most worthy cause.
Impresses him always with posts that give pause.
She's brilliant. Delightful. Articulate. Sweet.
And Jason, most happy they finally did meet.
They all laughed, how they laughed, til there was pain in their face,
And one of them spat gin all over the place.
Conversation was good, the food was delish
Then Jason said to himself, "I wish we lived closer, I wish."
They were strangers, yet not; an odd sort of crew,
They knew so much 'bout the other before saying "how do?"
Yet groups like this are becoming quite common,
New friends that connect through something special called bloggin'.
And now that it's over, Jason would just like to say,
Thank you ladies, for making his day.
When he started his Show, he never thought for a minute
That he would find such value, and love from within it.
