Even if I did die at the table with the help of my own husband! Why do I even enter the MO Murder game?

Then we walked down the block with Tamastara for breakfast at Tiffany's (good stuff) and then left for the airport. Just so happened that Garrett was going our way... on the same plane! By the time I got home I was torn. I wanted a few more days off work to recover... and I wanted to go back and do it again!
There were old friends to see and plenty of new ones to make. I really wish I'd taken more pictures! One couple in particular that I thought I DID get a pic of were some really cool GS players. Kelzar, ya'll better be there next year so I CAN get a pic!
Now to get ready for the cruise! See ya'll in October!
