Getting High with Ricochet Friends

 

Struggling to absorb enough oxygen from thin air, it’s a labor to walk 20 feet. The steep broken rocks that loom above look like teeth, and I imagine myself falling away from the narrow trail and tumbling down to hungry stone faces below. With a firm grip on trekking poles for balance, I pause and contemplate turning around to return to the forgiving embrace of a warm, soft bed when a voice above shouts encouragement. Taking a deep breath, I forge forward, knowing that pride may have to haul me up the last thousand feet or so.

It was the last weekend in October, 2013.  I’d never flown anywhere by myself before, but there was going to be a “meetup” of Ricochet writers, most of whom I’d been following in awe.  I was a bit nervous that I’d be the only woman and have no one to talk to, so I messaged […]

As many of you know, with the help of Randy Weivoda, (who actually does most of the work), we’ve maintained a separate website called Ricochetmeetup.com for the benefit of all our Ricochet friends here. On the main page, we list, in order, all the upcoming meetups we know about. In addition, we archive the meetups […]

Actually, Ramirez has won two Pulitzer Prizes for his magnificent political cartoons that grace the pages of hundreds of publications. He will join us for a CPAC Metup at 11:45 AM on Friday, March 4, at Grace’s Mandarin restaurant near the conference in Washington D.C.

It’s taken a couple of days to recover….. Chainsaw foolishly offered up his home for a raucous evening of a combined Ricochet/LAtitude young republicans meetup.   There were 3 birthday cakes, chicken, beef, various salads, and alcoholic beverages. The young folks ate nearly everything, then took off to misspend their youth on the town after […]

As many of you know, Ricochet Meetups have gained mythological status both for the stories (Troy’s giraffe, Rob Long’s TP party, etc) they generate and the amazing camaraderie they create among the Ricochetti who attend. I love meeting my fellow Ricochet members, and for some time now, I have stubbornly maintained a separate website, fittingly […]

As I commented in iWc’s post on Capitalism in the Torah. the FG Wife and I heard a draft of that piece just after we retired from iWc’s Shabbat table. That bit of brilliance was the topper on an evening of faith, food, and fellowship. I am especially grateful to have had some Ricochet companionship over […]

Everyone knows, or should, that if you go to RicochetMeetup.com or RicoMeet.com, you can catch up with the meetup schedule and get help planning one in your own neck of the woods.  That’s the good news.  The bad news is that I’ve placed a “OMG help me pay for all this” button on the website. […]
