    P.S. Make sure we all wear are IEFF T-shirts to show off our fantastic group.

    Looks like Delta will be riding with me. With all the stuff I'm bringing, I might have to strap him to the luggage rack, but hey, he's young, he can handle it!

    Minda, I got the tables!

    Buttons are in the car.

    Other paraphernalia is in a pile ready to go out in the morning.

    Ugh, I need to iron my Jedi costume!

    Yea! We're gonna have fun!

    What a blast we had today! Those of you who were not able to make it, we got good pictures so you can feel part of it too. We kept you there in spirit! The IEFF booth was so great, so many poeple visited us. I think Stuart said it was near 950 people.
    Everyone keeps posting that it was only 82, but when I moved my car to pack up my temp said 90 and that was at the end of the day. I'm sure it was near the high 90's! My rosey red cheeks will agree I think!
    Stuart, you were wonderful to set this up and for all the direction. it was really great! Mike. you found some great contacts and we are so glad you are the prefect PR man! There were so many wonderful moments and so many people did so much. I'll post the pictures soo... too tired...
    Thanks to all of the 501st. You were prefect booth mates. I really enjoyed playing with you all. Glen you are the prefect leader. Loved meeting so many new people and visiting with so many I've met before. I loved meeting Tiffany. She was really delightful.

    Well done everyone!

    JT, Kris, Stuart, Mike, Dane and Shelia, you guys did an amazing job with the booth yesterday! I hope you all had as much fun as it seemed!!

    Ronny, you big stud, nobody can guard a gate like you can!

    I'm sorry I didn't get to spend much time with Sandy and Bill. Thanks for bringing the Falcon! I hope you enjoyed yourselves and that you're feeling okay today, Sandy! Thanks for bringing the EZ-Ups and tables and the banner.

    Will, it was great to see you out and about with us! Thanks for all your help.

    Sonya, as always, you looked great! Thanks for coming out with Seth. Did he have a good time? Hope you and your family have an incredible time in Hawaii!! Can't wait to see the pix when you get back!

    Minda, you're amazing! You got us organized, brought supplies and all sorts of yummy stuff to keep us going and must have put IEFF stickers on at least half of the chests that came to the event! Thank you for everything you did for us!!!

    If I forgot to mention somebody, I sincerely apologize. It wasn't on purpose!

    I'm so thankful to be part of such a fun group!

    Oh yea, here are my pictures (and a few borrowed ones).

    Twenty-four people signed it, a couple of them were just goofballs wanting to be funny and at least two of them I couldn't make out the email address.

    Also, I need to update where my pictures actually are. Try here, instead.

    It was great seeing everyone yesterday. Yes, we had fun. I did miss being with everyone, but that's OK. I am sorry we did not come with you all after words. It is a good thing we went home because Brittney needed more help and I almost forgot about ordering the pizza's. My oldest daughter and grandkids were there, so I am very tired. The Comic Book day was great and fun. Thank you to all of you for going to the event. For those of you that weren't there, you were missed and hope to see you soon. Looking forward to going to the Mountain Top Cafe on Saturday. Can't wait. Bye.

    Yeah, fo sho, Nikol's new Padme rocks. Seth did have a great time, he was all tuckered out from his bounce-house antics. We ended up going to see Iron Man at the Krikorian theater in Redlands yesterday. Thought it was really cool!
