A weekend of fun with a sad ending …

I had an amazing time at the Winter Carnival of Magic this weekend. I think Mike Stratman and his crew from Ring #58 did an outstanding job. It was great to hang out with old friends like Bob Sheets, Ken Scott, Stoil & Ekaterina, Fukai, Jason Michaels, Kristi Toguchi and all the FFFFer’s. It was also nice to meet new friends.

The trip home was a nightmare and the United Airlines employee at the gate counter in Chicago should be made to take a course on how to deal with her own stress and maybe even on how to tell time! In these time of economic crisis isn’t it about time companies take a closer look at who’s representing their product?

Although the weekend was fun and exciting it ended on a sad note when I found out my dear friend, Ali Bongo had passed away. He was 79 and lived a thousand lives. He will be missed by many.
