and i got some great pictures...if blogger would only let me upload them...!
sadly, they'll have to wait 'til later of tomorrow when blogger finally gets itself together (come on, blogger...!)
lots of fun, lots of friends, lots of family!
so good to see so many of you out there that, 'til now, i've only known as names on the message boards or here in the comments section! ed, dave, emilio, brian--always good to see karen and dave!
sharon and i got to spend LOTS of time with our "family"--matt and suzanne, christian, craig and trish, karl and myrna, nick and marian, mark...
lots of money was raised for three different causes--
the heroes initiative's what if? special!
our tribute to ringo sketchbook for the aspca!
and especially, matt and suzanne's ringo scholarship at scad!
lots of people gave lots of money in mike's memory and we all tried our best not to cry in front of each other.
though he was missed, he was also there, in every smile and every hug.
he was everywhere.
craig and i sold a lot of copies of the perhapanauts annual and issues 1 and 2 (we are now officially out of the trades) and a bunch of t-shirts to some of our favorite perhapa-fans! (i have pictures but, as i said, they'll have to wait...)
