      Sally, a day or two before the event I send out a message describing what I am planning to wear, to make it easier to find me.

    I sent out an email to everybody who has said they will be attending as of now. In case you didn't see it, for those who don't know me, I am a short brunette with glasses, and I will be wearing a purple dress and probably carrying a blue or striped shawl in case it's chilly. Look for me in the Locktite Lobby or wherever the reception is occurring. I may put my shawl on a few seats to reserve a good spot in the Aetna Auditorium, if enough of y'all have arrived by about twenty minutes before the discussion is scheduled to begin.
