    Wendyba29 lives a few miles from me in a town where the nearest Walmart and one of the feedstores I frequent are. I was there today and stopped into a pet store where she had told me she works; had to get a red reptile heat bulb for Zane's cage area since I'm not sure of his ability to keep warm without companions to snuggle with on those cold nights.
    So, I met another BYCer today! The last ones I met were lockedhearts and Pumpkinpup when she came to get CJ and some hatching eggs.
    Wendy, get with me about those chicks this spring! I'm sure I'll have to find homes for all the babies the future broodies will be hatching. [​IMG]

    That's pretty cool!

    Small world out there, there's quite a few BYC members around me too.

    I would love to run into a fellow BYCer.

    Was it random, Cyn? Like you were talking to the pet store person about Zane's needs and a voice said "ZANE???? OMG Are you SPECKLEDHEN????"

    Or was it planned?

    I knew she worked there, but I forgot the screen name. When I got to the counter with the bulb, I said, "I have an odd question for you." I asked if she belonged to a forum called and she said she did, then I told her I was speckledhen. So, now I have another BYC neighbor!

    I've met a few folks from work on some forums I browse. It is always interesting when you take that first leap, but usually I ask if they are _____ (their username).

    I can't find a blasted person near me. There is one member about 60 miles away and another few about 50 miles, but close? Nope.

    Amazing, isn't it, for someone who rarely leaves the mtn.? I've met wolfbaine30, LocoPollo, rooster-red, headbangingrooster, lockedhearts, Pumpkinpup and now Wendyba29. Seems like I've met someone else, but I cant recall at the moment.
