This month we had a visit from a friend we met online Greg Pitts
Traveling here from Florida, Greg showed up to a hot steak dinner an ice cold beer and a big Canadian welcome.
As the day progressed, we learned that Greg has traveled all around the world meeting folks just like us and most by means of the internet. Twitter, Facebook ,Websites are just a couple of mediums we talked about on his visit.
They all lead to how important social media is becoming and this is just one example while here Greg was able to connect with Rob my Webmaster of course Kathy from Computertek who hosted this person to person event and who Greg was talking to on Twitter in the very beginning.
In true Canadian style, that evening we had big fire and showed Greg why we live in the greatest country on earth and we also got to hang out with a true American . We had many conversations that night sitting at the picnic table, from art to cars, we even talked about the youth around the world.
I could tell Greg was concerned for his kids and what kind of life they are going to have, things we all worry about. The more we talked, the more we found we had in common, but one thing kept coming up , social media, ya I know it sounds crazy but an Artist, a Mechanic, a Webmaster and a Computertek all got together and talked about how important social media is in their business, sounds like an old joke my dad told back in the day.
Early the the next morning the sun was out and the weather man came through sun sun sun a great day had arrived and Greg right away was inspired, drawing after drawing he must have went through ten sharpies that day everyone was so happy to get a drawing on a piece of wood
or the back of a bedroom door
It was a Pleasure to have Greg around he left us with so many great memories the USA has a great ambassador in Greg. Like the door says Artists Greg Pitts the white house 2014 he is the man.
