I spend a few minutes looking for John's schedule in a prior post. Here it is Post #118 for those that may have missed it or need the information: http://www.apug.org/forums/viewpost.php?p=1339950

We will have to make a table of contents next time with an index at the end.

Hi John, I made it into town safely. I am going to lay down for a little nap and see you soon! 4 1/2 hours of sleep and getting up at 0300 makes it a necessity.

Bad news - Eva & I won't make it after all. Really sorry everyone, but she's too sick and is being sent to bed. Thanks to John for holding the event, we feel bad for bailing at the last minute like this.

We made it as far as Toledo before I was able to talk some sense into her. She's got a bad head cold / sore throat and can barely talk or swallow. We will see you all at the next gathering though. Eat some ice cream for me everyone!

You are welcome to join me for sure, however I am NOT getting up at 0300 tomorrow! I will be meeting at John's at 0900 and probably do all my shooting at the farm museum starting around 0930.

One of the happiest moments of my 63 years of photography was to take twenty some Apug photographers from five states to a place where I have made 100 images in the last 1 ˝ years. Then as they ranging from amateur to pro, 35mm to 11x14 format, spread out, finding the subjects I had found, I got to watch their faces light up, their excitement build and their mouths flap as they discovered what a wonderful source this was. I wandered from guest to guest reveling in their delight as they set up equipment and compositions, watched their friends do the same, and wonder if they could make this picture and get to the next before the beautiful light changed. Then I watched our host, the builder of this 1800s farm museum, fall in love with Charlie’s wet plate gear, completing the give and take circle of happiness.

If that were not enough for a wonderful day, two of my three Labradors took advantage of their freedom and the commotion of the party. They took a hike. Only the kindness of an unknown couple, two miles away, saved the day as they lured the girls in with biscuits, called the phone numbers on their collars and waited for the jailer’s wagon to bring the runaways home.

Thank you for this day.

Thanks to John and Dolly for hosting another great event. I really enjoyed seeing old friends and meeting the new guests. Like John, I had a blast at the farm. Matt- sorry I had to cut out before the "mating", but I thought the demo was great as is your enthusiasm. Thanks again to everyone.
