Oh, good, so the evening won't be guided conversation with hand-smacking for thread drift...

I'm glad it so far away. Right now I'm frumpy and frazzled and still have four quite substantial papers left to finish and various other things that I've forgotten and/or have written down on little scraps of paper in my backpack. Will it be okay if I show up with half my hair pulled out?

Good luck with your papers. You would think after all that stress you should be allowed to have a drink, lol. No drinks but you can get married and go to war and fight for our country, right?

Lisa, I've moved a lot. From several towns in CT, there to SW VA, to Richmond for a few months to Knoxville for a few weeks, finally settled in JC.

Thank you for the reassurance everybody. Are we restricting any topics, though - i.e. religion and politics? The last thing I'd want to see is any crazy heated debate in person

Ooh, I want a night off, too. Of course by then I'll be in full summer vacation mode so all my nights will be off!

Lisa, thanks, I know, right? A bit ridiculous. I still manage to get my alcohol. And, technically, no, I can't get married, but that's a huge topic for a totally different discussion board!

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone too. I have this weird feeling I'll get there, see someone face to face and go, "Holy cow! I already know you!" LOL

Sounds like you've gotten to see a lot of places. I'm originally from NY to FL to NY to NC to FL and then in a motor home traveling the country for a few years and finally to TN. My DH and I have been in this area on and off since 1996. Yay TN.

I don't mind a fun spirited debate but I "hate" fighting so safe topics are good to me. I think we will all just have a lot of fun and a casual evening.

I know I won't know any of you by face because I don't live and shop close by. But I bet a lot of you will recognize Mike and I. Hey now you will get to see our faces, lol. I might even have to ask you guys to take a picture of us. We never get any pictures of us together.
