    We also saw Craig and his partner, Debra! On Sunday they got dressed up as a puppet dragon and did a puppet show for the kids. Wish I took some pics; I was packing up when they got rolling.

    This year's theme was steampunk, so here is a friend of mine, Lord Ramirez, on his time machine.

    FYI - The Con raised $1,525.20 for the Heritage Humane Society through auctions, the HHS table, and massage donations. The Con Chair says that 2 of the cats were adopted that weekend by a con goer.

    Next Year's theme will be in honor of Arthur C. Clarke!
