I cannot believe I forgot to post this! As I was writing on my blog today I noticed I never hit publish!!!! O well, better late than never!!!!!!!
It finally happened! We six DD couples (and a duck) finally met for a long weekend! We came from all different parts of the country and one from Canada. We also were able to connect with one special chat lady for a few hours before the weekend officially began.
It was an amazing weekend. I knew we would all like one another and was pretty sure everyone would be the same as they are in “chat”. I have to admit there were a few tears of joy shed to finally meet someone you have chatted with a very long time and you so badly wanted to meet. I was so happy to be in the company of these couples, and had waited a long time for this to happen.
We all stayed in a very large cabin, ate meals together, cooked together, the men golfed, the ladies shopped and went to lunch (the drink menu was on a ping pong paddle). There were some games played, fun get to know you games, some shot pool, I got beat bad at air hockey. There was a lil drinking, cigar smoking, dancing, music and we won’t mention the hot tub (no there was nothing kinky that happened in the hot tub, we are very much into our own spouses).
There were some gifts exchanged seems some HOH’s think their “brothers” can never have enough “implements”! Like maybe a long foam sword, rubber coated paint sticks, big wooden paddle (but it said something sweet and was beautifully hand painted), lil wooden spoons, handmade wooden paddles crafted beautifully stained and sealed. A mini oar there is nothing “mini” about it! The ladies little tokens of love were so much better. There were martini glasses and shot glasses hand painted with angel wings. Beautiful bags, halo’s (yes halo’s), pillows, candy (long pixie sticks, pop rocks) Just use your imagination. Some might have received a special gift like maybe a shovel and a bucket “just to dig yourself out of the hole you keep digging yourself into”. I can’t even remember all of the sweet gifts.
We went to dinner one night to a place called Dick’s. If you haven’t been there you should go, not so much for great food but just for the entertainment. It was very entertaining as the wait staff is rude to you and our little waitress was great she didn’t miss a beat, even when all of the HOH’s at the exact same time decided to pull their wooden paddles out of their pocket and place them on the table. She just turned around and stuck her bottom out!!! She wasn’t even the least bit taken aback. We did a little bit of moonshine tasting, shopped some more and just spent much of the time laughing, talking, and just having a great time together.
I feel so very fortunate to have been able to meet these couples in real life, they are people I genuinely care about and love. I know about their children, their parents, and their pets. We have so much more in common than just this lifestyle. As different as some of us might be or even live DD we also have so much in common.
The long weekend ended way too fast I wasn’t ready for it to end. Since returning home we did received a wonderful photo slide show/movie with music to it that I can watch anytime I start missing these folks. Now I just cannot wait for the next time!
