I had a great time as well. There were many highlights of this meet. First was meeting James' lovely wife who is a chef and as such all of us were surprised by the wonderful appetizer, main courses and dessert. Next, I had a grand time with James' 6 yo daughter who was kind enough to donate one of her artistic portraits to my growing collection and teach me some really groovy ballet moves. Next was meeting James again and checking out his dynamite setup- very enjoyable. Steve (sledwards) brought his very beautiful tube linestage design (by none other than Kevin Carter my diy tube guru & advisor). Steve's execution and soldering was superb and I say that with the eyes of an advanced diy hobbyist! Seeing Rich again was like seeing family, he always throws a joke in when you least expect it, it's like "come again, what?"). It was great meeting krustycat for the 1st time
I also was enamored by one of James' real felines - Asparagus.
On the way back I shopped at Cary's Trader Joe's and brought home groceries, redeeming myself!
Thanks again fellas...till next time!
