Return Roll Call

Pat Amaral and I made it back in just under 8 hours. Linda was 2 hours faster .... because she has a lead foot and wasn't dragging a trailer.

Cydonia and I made it to my house in Spring Arbor around 4:30 this afternoon. We left Louisville just before 10:00 a.m. and stopped for breakfast in southern Indiana.

We'll be up early in the morning to go to men's breakfast at my church, then I'm driving him to Lansing for his flight back to Louisiana.

Another WonderFest has come and gone, another year of wonderful memories of time spent with friends. It's over all too soon. :(
Surrounded by unbuilt models. What the heck do I work on next??

Left the hotel parking lot at 5pm Sunday, got to Thag's house at 8:55pm, and then home at 9:08pm.
Karen gave me a kiss, a long hug, wanted to know if the drive was OK, and then: "Where is the cooler?!" Which had dry ice, and, a box of goodies from Cake Flour Bakery. That is some dang good chocolate cake...

This is me, several days later. Want to thank those I met for making it a memorable WF. This was easily the best year yet, meeting "new" people and catching up with those I'd met in prior years.

We really a contact list for next years show. I would like to have met several people that went but didn't realize they were there this year. We need a list managed that can be sent out to those who are going that has your name, screen name, and cell number or e-mail.....

Maybe I'll take that on for next years show.

The Seattle contingent got home Wednesday evening; and Thursday was show-and-tell at the Galaxy Hobby sci-fi club meeting. Mad Paul gave a very nice powerpoint, including graphs of front bumper squashed bug density over time, several pictures of King of Greeblies riding jackalopes, and a rundown of all wildlife seen on the trip, living and otherwise. Did you know that armadillos have reached as far north as mid-Missouri? They seem to be having trouble getting across I-70, though. :shock:

I'm home :) A little jet lagged, as to be expected.

It was fun while it lasted, but back to work tomorrow.
