    Who's going to Redland next year? Is there a vendor list anywhere yet? We should all meet up for a picture.

    Me! Me! I'm going. (Surprised?)

    The vendor list doesn't change much year to year. There is a waiting list of vendors wanting to attend, but they gotta wait til someone else drops off.

    I was talking with Diana (Robert Randall's wife) on Sunday. Robert wants to retire from being head honcho host in the worst way, (which we knew) but there isn't a clear successor. I know someone who wants to step up, but I'm guessing there's much more to organizing this show than meets the eye. The F&S park is becoming more expensive to rent; I guess they've recently been designated a "heritage park" and the cost to rent has sky rocketed. The newly-required handicap access (the black groundcloth runners) has caused the expense to go up exhorbitantly. The corrupt M-D gov't takes a bit of finesse to handle, too, in getting permits and such. Soo... it will be interesting to see how this show evolves in years to come.

    Aren't you glad you asked? :)

    I'm already starting to save money. I didn't use a CC this year and I'll be damned if I do next year either!

    This whole thing needs to be moved to the West Coast. Anyone object to that?

    If there's beer in the fridge and Jagermeister in the freezer, I will be there. Alexis. Nudge nudge.

    I would like to attend.
    I would like that Borders man, to have a WINE cart in addition to the BEER cart.
    Other than that, I got nothing.

    It's settled, then. Redland 2011 will be in Bandon. Wioux hioux! Y'all bring a tent and you can camp down at the sand quarry. For free. It'll be fun.

    I objected yesterday and I strenuously object today.

    Board those dogs for a couple of days and get your sorry old ass on a plane, Borders. Jeez.

    Yeah, Dale! What MJ said. (Wioux hioux - LOL!!!)

    Plenty of freezer space for your Jaeger, Chris; no need for subtle nudges. After just discussing the joy of drinking straight from the bottle, I'd think you'd know that! :)

    Karen, I'm with you - we need WINE next year!
