yes.. mara sent me email that she was working on our stormtrooper plight.. she sent me her phone number to stay in touch.. so that is one of the things I will do today. Oh Mugen.. such a shame to have broken two of your FX sabers.. that is a lot of money. Can't wait to see you in costume once again. Are you available this weekend if anyone needs your expertise for leather or what not? so it looks like we have a few more definite members showing up.. I am assuming Mugen is going to be with us.. and DLJ you will have your mom and daughter.. umm.. dialswiftjustice.. is your wife planning on coming with your daughter? I am wanting to get as accurate a count as I can for our meal and drinks.. though still do not know what to do on that front.. calling a few places today.. eegee's and basha's and IHOP.. will let you know what we find out .. also going to talk to Krispy Kreme. anyone heard from JM? I will have to call him. in any case.. we are moving along well.. still much to do.. if you are up for something such as running around town and hunting down a few large boxes to collect donations.. that would be great.
