Oh yeah, I wasn't able to get the time off from work (a wedding for one person and 2 people with seniority over me bumped my sorry butt) and so am working with my supervisor to see just how early I can make it up there on Thursday and Friday. I'll need to return home Thursday evening but plan on keeping my hotel room for Friday evening.

Soooooo it looks like I'll miss the Lunch on Thursday!! DRATS! However, please let me know how I can find all of you in the afternoon!!! If my suggestion (to the boss) is accepted, I should be at the conference by 3:00 or shortly there after. <fingers crossed>

I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone! :)

Amy

Did Cat bury them again? :blink:

That very well could be what happened. :P

I saw some GORGEOUS skin however!!! I know who I want to finish my leg next time I have one made. They even do freckles! I know I've heard about it before but seeing it in person is very cool!! Got some great tips for the next time I attempt alpine skiing too.

Can't wait for tomorrow for the "Women's Issues" seminar! Should be good.

Where the hell are you Marcus? <_< Maybe you got buried? :blink: We all were looking for you and we made some people here feel real bad about you not attending. :angry: Don't you feel bad about it? ;) You should be here you know. Sorry about the guilt trip, and I really don't mean to make you feel bad. Well maybe a little bit. :blink: :P

You couldn't find us because the Aussies have us buried in the watering hole. We are having a great time. Lots to see and do. It's great putting faces with the names. Hope all can join us in Atlanta next year. Maybe we can even get some of the Brits here next year.

It's late and I've had a few too many bourbons so I'm off to bed. More to drink tomorrow. I mean do tomorrow.

OK, I've printed the picture and will have it in hand as I wonder around today. Someone PLEASE say something if you see a woman looking like she's looking for someone (blue shirt/black pants)!!! B) I don't recognize anyone in the photo so apparently we were never in the same place at the same time. Today, I should be there by 2 or a little afterward. *fingers crossed*

Don't feel bad Amy. Apparently I ate brunch at the next table and didn't find them. Brenda's the only one from this list I had met in the past so I wasn't sure who I was looking for. I finally ran into Johnny in the lobby.

Here is a picture of me from last night at the Otto Bock Fair in the East Courtyard, Hamming it up with Scott Crosbie and The Medicine Show Music Company Band. I was in my element immediately.

Oh, by the way, I went on a field trip to tour the Otto Bock Minnesota service department today. That is where they service C-Leg and Harmony units here in the US.

As of this post, I still have not met AmySkyDivr. Where are you Amy????

I almost forgot, here is a picture of JudyH, getting in on the fun with the band. That is Higgy/Tammie's Husband John kneeling down with them.

And we also hooked up with a member that we haven't seen for a while. We were glad to hook up with her, and she has promised to become more active, this is PaulaBonnie - Paula.

This turned out to be even more of a turn out. 15 all together. Not necessarily all at the same time which can be very challenging, but still the same. So we have a new number that we need to exceed next year.
