|It began with Pancakes in Macedonia|
March 23, 2022
I met him on a site that now can not be reached. It was most popular as you could leave voice messages to others. The widget was found on other social media sites such as myspace.
For the life of me I just don't recall how we connected. Me being in the southern part of N.C. and him way across the other end of the world. A world much different than mine. A place called Skopje. The capital of the largest city of North Macedonia. I wrote about him once years ago here. I called him My Macedonia Man. We still talk almost on a daily basis till this day. He always reminds me of how he ran across me on snapvine. There was a group of us that became quite popular popular. As a matter of fact I did run into a youtube video where I was on there with my humor along with many others but I swear I can't find it now. I wish I would of saved some of my stuff but I didn't. I did little funny skits. He said I made him and his family and friends laugh many days and nights.
He tells me just how beautiful the pictures and videos I share with him of my adventures and trips to the mountains. Through the years he has met Vic via face-time. He knows my whole family now. Its been 12 if not longer that we have kept in touch. From Pancakes to talking about the War in Ukraine.
As he tells me the story of him as a young boy being in a War
He recalls the horror. And now not far away War is happening again.
He was so worried when he read that I was in the hospital with my heart and became confused and upset becoming confused when Vic posted about his kids mother passing away. He thought I had died. He said he backed away from his computer and became very upset and silent. He said he felt empty inside. He told me. It wasn't until he read it over a few times to find in relief that I had not passed away. He said.
I really enjoy talking with him and I just LOVE his accent. And he makes me laugh when he curses. Yeah he makes me laugh
There's not a subject that we haven't talked about. Or laughed about.
