Making friends without Facebook

I found I can make new friends without Facebook.

Every day I walk down around the campground and tell everyone I see what I ate, how I feel at the moment, what I did the night before, what I will do later, and with whom.
I give them pictures of my family, of my coach and of me working on my coach, dumping my tanks, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch, and doing things everybody does every day.
I also listen to their conversations, give them the "thumbs up" and tell them I like them.

It works just like Facebook.
I already have four people following me....(a park ranger, a deputy sheriff, a private investigator, and a psychiatrist).

In 1969, when my family moved from California to Georgia, one of my mom's students gave her a very warm and heartfelt card with a personal inscription. It was signed with her first name only. My mom, not one to hold onto things, kept the card until her death in 1999.

I wanted to let the woman know how much the card and her friendship had meant to my mom. With a first name and hometown, I found her on Facebook in two minutes.

I get that Facebook and the like can be a great way to keep in touch with your kids, friends, or whomever. My family members are big users of Facebook. I dropped my account years ago. With all due respect to Mel (and I know your post was a bit of sarcasm) I really don't care to know that much about anyone. So if you come by my campsite simply say hi and we'll get along fine. If I want to know more, I'll ask.
