Fantastic pix! Our Freeper Fotographers are something, else, aren't they? Congratulations to all who organized and participated in this great informational and fun event!

I'm now taking off my FRiva Diva hat after doing the "color" on the Las Vegas pre-conference threads. I'm rummaging around my little grass hut for my Bahama Mama hat, the one with all the pineapples and bananas on!

We're now looking into a future FRN cruise where all of us plus many, many more freepers can do it again, this time to the beat of a steel drum band on a sun-soaked Caribbean beach!

Bahama Mama

Thanks for the ping, what a wonderful bunch of Freepers. I'm so disappointed that I couldn't make it. Next year for sure.

Japedo, we could actually smoke anywhere we wanted to!!! No running up the stairs or down the stairs!!! Could sit and smoke and have coffee and chat at the restaurants! You would have loved it.

After the seminars, we would do just what we did on ship, gather and rehash the day and everything that was going on -I hope you can attend next year.


Missed seeing you.

Thanks for linking the photos so all of us could enjoy them. It's always a great event when FReepers get together and it's nice to put names to faces.

'Pod -- you're looking good behind the podium.

I don't know who clicked this one, but it is my wife's favorite of me from the Conference.

This is a great thread. Many great pics of some very fine people engaged in the most important of causes. May we be utterly committed to that cause and to it's Author, Who has granted us and endowed us with our unalienable rights.

FRegards.

I keep telling you that you need to change the oil in that hat;^) That doesn't mean to get a new hat; try Woolite, cold water and a soft brush.

You sir need new glasses. :)

LNM is 100% Grade A Texas woman.

As for the other part of your claim, I'm too much of a gentleman to ask for the pleasure of proving that you are in error. ;)

Oh I could either clean it well myself or get a class A job done at a couple of western wear stores I know ... and I'm talking the real thing here in terms of western ear stores, not the big affairs in the large cities.

But, I prefer to let the work stains remain as they are. They get somewhat softened when I'm working in the snow or the rain and the hat gets soaked through that way.

As it is, they allow me to never forget the feel or worth of honest, hard, manual labor by the sweat of my brow. It's something my Dad taught me to approeciate and I have voed never to lose site of it.

Best regards. Tell SLB that the eBook version of Vol. II is ready for him to dig into.

Best regards!

Sorry you missed. I drove down after work on Friday from Boise ... almost 800 miles. Got there in the middle of Saturday afternoon just in time for the panel, then dinner.

Left early Sunday morning and drove back.

It was well worth it.

Fregards!

My favorite picture that Syncro took. (for obvious reasons)
And Doughty1, I'm shocked and appalled that you didn't recognize me sitting between AnnaZ and Redwing9 on the first after event photo down in the battle bar.
I don't know why. No one recognizes me anyway. I just am. HRRRMPH!


Just another Joe and lovely missus.

Wish y'all could have made the conference. It was almost as much fun as Ft. Marcy Park at midnight on Halloween.

I am working 2.7 businesses (some really creative people have 4 jobs :>)and dumping one but will keep me busy 12 or more hrs a day for the next 2 or three weeks. I have only put a few on the website and will do more as soon as I can.

One of them I have to post of Fred 'cause of his threat:

I think he was particularly handsome in this one...

Gotta go for now, but here is Laura Ingrahm laughing at one of my jokes...LOL

Since I first met you, I have tried to figure out who you reminded my of - I know now - Will Rodgers. Both in looks and humour and honest speaking.

I think your comments were tongue in cheek. At any rate, I have a very hard time with names. My wife can remember the name of people she met once for thirty seconds 1172 years ago. Ahem, "two years ago". I'm in trouble now.

I appologize and throw myself on the mercy of the court. It isn't a slam by any means. It's embarassing. But it's me. Sorry bud.

Well we will have to get together after 6 weeks or so when this pesky painting business is gone...that will free up some time...and brainstorm on the sculpture management ...as a director of the Institute of Phenomonology you may have to make the sculpture biz Job One.

The other day if I remember when the door squeeked like a cat meyowing your job five was walking waggles...lol.

Dern you know I didn't get any pictures of the Ship Battle! I will look but think I didn't.

It isn't enough to just read Syncro's posts.

As indicated in his 2nd sentence above, some must be solved.
