Always wanted to ask this. But was this date picked to coincide with the anniversary of Elvis' death?

No, I don't think so. And I believe the FRiva name was picked because of the everpresent Elvis personna manifesting itself somewhere in Vegas.

As you can see in the photos, an evil entity has regrettably taken over the body of skeet...

That is why I asked. I remember Leni telling me why..obviously Viva! Las Vegas...I know the flick...and the Elvis connection. Just found it odd that the date coincided with his death.

At least ONE person in the second picture smiled.

Have fun, enjoy the event.

I'm stuck and couldn't come.

Had to help a very eldery friend (Near 100) and holding.

Looks like no one ate the potato croquette, or whatever that is. Still, if only someone had passed the sour cream . . .

You guys have a great time. Wish I could have gone.

I gave my husband 2 nickles and told him to spread them around. He lost them both. I'm not shelling out anymore!

Right you are, MFH. Elvis the Pelvis gyrated off this mortal coil August 16, 1977, twenty-five years ago today. He was always a crowd-pleaser in Las Vegas.

Our good conservative voyagers to this fair city will also be meetin', rockin' and rollin' this weekend to the tune of "FReep Me Tender"!

I normally try to respond to everyone who addresses me, but this weekend I'll be involved in the conference and unable to follow that policy. To those that I don't address, thanks for the comments and rest assured I'll read them either now or on Sunday.

I appreciate interest in FRive Conference and wish every Freeper could have been here.

Take care folks.

FRiva Las Vegas starts this evening.

This is truly wonderful news - FReepers gathering to discuss politics and local issues.

(Can the Elvis banner disappear now? Please?)

LOL, my guess -- chicken cordon bleu or fish with much too much stuffing.

Well I wish you were here too. We are having a blast. Laura's presentation was very good. She spoke for about an hour, then fielded questions for another forty minutes or so. Excellent. See the next post linked at the bottom of this thread.

Most of us had been working hard to make FRiva a success. I got two hours sleep on Thursday night, after printing out the name tags. Two hours later I was packing for the trip. Like everyone else, I have a private life too. Three cameras, two computers, flash memory cards, cables expansion ports, adapters, chargers, flash memory readers, batteries, cell phones, more chargers, power supplies, telephone cords... Get the picture?

Your looking at a photo that was taken about 9:30 p.m. after most of us spending three to seven hours travel time to the event. You're lucky we weren't all face down in our plates, let alone smiling.

BobJ: "Hmmm....I had a mustache when I started this meal. But that's OK, Dio's playing footsie with me"
Dio's mom: "Gross. There's hair on this table leg".

So, is this what passes for intelligent commentary where you're from?

At least we don't use prepositions at the end of sentences where I live at.

So, being a grammer cop is sufficient cover for your boorishness?

Please!

You owe Diotima, Bob and Dio's mom an apology, but I'll bet you don't have the stones to own up to it!
