Will do Judith, I do hope to get down your way. A friend just moved to the Portland area and wants me to come down. If I do, I'll definitely reach out for a pedicure party and make time in my travel plans. I was not a dancer but I've always had a hard time finding shoes that fit well and my feet have often hurt. A good pedi is heaven. I wish they would massage longer, that is the part I need.

Be sure to post a picture if you gt a group to go.

Hopefully we will meet soon.

Wow, Judith, if it wasn't a 3 hour drive for me to come from Seattle, I'd be there in a heartbeat! LOL
Sounds like a great time to practice self care, our feet are important! and to be treated to wine and appetizers is extra nice. Go for it folks, and take a group photo and share with us.

I know of some good pedicure places here in Seattle but none that are working with the restaurant next door. I envy you this opportunity.

I looked over the agenda for the Expo. Not sure what I can really learn. However, being social with others here is certainly of great benefit to all. If there is a tu meeting I'm going!

Portland Diabetes Expo is February 11th! I'm planning to be there! Please let me know if you are going too & would like to meet for a simultaneous glucose test! (just kidding) If anyone would like to say hi though, I'd love to meet you/see you! Jason, Virgil, & I had a blast 2 years ago!

Hey all---I've got knee replacement surgery next month and would love to connect with a bunch of you for fun and comforting conversation in early Feb. How about February 4th---lunch hour or later works for me. I'm open to any part of town, with a preference for MAX line access!

Hey. Let me try that again---the link doesn't work but I see the weirdness at the start:

Comment by Oregon Meetup Group on January 9, 2012 at 9:12pm

Oregonians----We've got our own group now: Oregon Meetup Group:


Please go over and befriend it. I really want to have a get-together in Early February before knee replacement surgery takes me out for awhile. Our 2 holiday meetups were so much fun!......

I want to express my sincere thanks to those who showed up for the Meetup today at Sister's Coffee here in downtown Portland in the Pearl District. I feel sharing with others about our experiences is extremely important. I'm planning to have a monthly or bi-monthly Meetup depending on how much interest we can gather from members and others in the greater Portland and Vancouver areas. Please let me know if you are interested in such a venture and what days and times might be best for you. I'll try to schedule Meetups when the most members are able to come.

Comment by Ricky Joe on December 3, 2011 at 4:02pm

Hello all, the next Meetup was scheduled for Thursday December 8th from 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. at Jim & Patties Coffee People at 50th & Fremont. Would it be better to move it to a Saturday the 10th from 2:00 to 4:00?
