      Steve---As a realtor in High Season, my time may not be my own if I am with clients. I really wanted to attend the added distance wasn't a deterrent. I really wanted to ck out the Saltwater Café. Sounds like it was a great event + I had a surprise for Vivian.

      We've discussed this before Randy...just don't RSVP yes if you cannot commit. It is nearly impossible to offer folks a great event without having an accurate head count. The fact is that each person that is a no-show thinks they are the only one. Some months it isn't a big deal, but when 40% don't show, as has happened twice in the past year, it makes me wonder what am I even doing this for? We are ALL busy...a business commitment is a business commitment. I simply tell my clients I am not available, I have a previous meeting to attend.

      Steve, too bad for them. I grately appreciated meeting you guys half way. 33 mins is way better than 1 hr 5 min drive. I was, at least, able to enjoy my 2/fer wine glasses and get home safely- thanks to you! : )

    I am sorry I have to cancel. I was looking forward to meeting some great people. If anyone can help me out with a clone or two please contact me.

      You missed a good event, Brian. Had hoped to see you & possibly have a chance to discuss your project. Have been looking for a cloning machine myself, really overbooked today; managed to keep 'most' of my appointments (at least those in the afternoon and evening) though a bit late on the last one. Will be up really late tonight (as usual) playing catch-up on this internet machine.... ttyl

    I truly had a great time, second time around. Enjoyed sitting with Ed and Jason and James. Thanks guys for the great conversation. Met some wonderful ladies, as well. I am looking forward to staying in touch with you and the next event. Seemed scarce in attendance than reflected in RSVP... too bad. They missed out on a fabulous venue (a lot closer to us who travel an hour to meet with you on a regular basis), good location, ambiance and the pizza was good. Will check it out for dinner, for sure. Any one want to meet for dinner? Let me know.

      I'd be afraid to meet anybody that is like-minded to me...heck, I'm scared of what goes on in my own mind now! LOL
