Hope you can make it Shawn. Maybe come for dinner, show prints, camp out and go back in the AM. What ever you can do we hope we are part of it.

Ok if that's what you want to hear... But it is. I came to the same realization only this past weekend myself. I thought it was the weekend after... Sure hope my mom and wife (not the same person) understand that I won't be there. ;) I will start looking for a nice card though.

Ok, looks like I'm still good for Friday and Sat.

I heard back from Jameswilliamsjones:


I should be able to make the get-together for one or maybe two days.

My Fuji instant film is on the way also...

Would love to come out to one of these get-togethers someday, but the timing is bad for me on this one. Maybe next time!

Eva tells me that with your current behavior,
this getting old will not be a problem for very long.

Glad to hear you will be out of the dog house on this one.
Say Hi to Bill. Glad he is coming.
Yes, film makes a difference.

Welcome to Apug. We hope to have another event in either late July or early August. Hope you can make it. Watch for the new thread closer to that time.

I seemed to have forgotten that it's my daughter's Senior prom this weekend:whistling: Looks like I'll have to wait for the next one in the Summer.

You gotta take care of home first. Hope to meet you next time.

Mom loves me and wants me to be happy. That's why she told me she's perfectly happy, in complete bliss even, for me to bring her Outback Steak House gift card over early if I have to miss Mother's Day. Now I know what to get her! ;)

Dolly and her 90 year old mother say they see it as a great time to get out together for some girl time. Different strokes for…. Unfortunately my mother hasn’t been with us since 1972.

She keeps threatening, but I've managed to be just charming enough ....

It looks like 14-15 people are planning to come. Some are still trying to decide. Some will be here for a yet to be determined time, but they are coming.

We have had days of rain for those of you out of town. Today is gorgeous. Right now the grass is above my ankles, too wet to mow and rubbing Savannah’s stomach. Please plan on waterproof shoes or boots.

There is a 30-40% chance of rain at different points through the weekend and temperatures high 50s-low 60s. In Cleveland we complain about grey skies. In Paris they call it silvery. There is something about glasses half full or empty. You decide. If it rains we can look at prints or go to either of two great photo museum exhibits:
Landscape - http://www.clevelandart.org/visit/exhibitions.aspx
1940-50s Jazz - http://www.akronartmuseum.org/exhibitions/details.php?unid=1870
I had to write a one page gallery visit review on each for my class. Send me a PM with your email and I can send you a copy if interested in one person’s view.

Here is a tentative schedule. You are welcome to follow it or create your own adventure, touching base with the rest of us when you please. I run a tight ship with leaks everywhere.

Fri: meet, talk, go to dinner about 6 PM. Campers come in when you get here. The grass is not mowed there either.

Sat: 9 AM coffee at our house.
I am going to lead who ever will follow to the mile of the OH & Erie Canal towpath where I got the most pictures. See post #21 in this thread. It will be interesting to learn what you see.
5: PM Meet again at our house. We will go to dinner early, come back here and look at people’s work.

Sun: 10: AM meet at Richfield Family Restaurant across from motels at the OH Tpk. entrance for brunch, talk, goodbye to some, off shooting to others.

Thanks for coming to the gathering and making it your own event.

John & Dolly

It looks like 'The Aged P.' is on a rebound - I didn't think I would be able to make it but it now looks like I will. Of course, that can change in a few hours. But for now, if you can take it, I can offer one more cat to herd onto the leaky boat. It will be great seeing you all again.

Dorothy,

I am so happy to hear you are coming. After your last post I thought you were going elsewhere this weekend.

We are supposed to have a storm tonight and I really don't know how bad it will be down there tomorrow. I haven't been able to mow anything yet so it will probably be wet. Since you and Jeff are camping and have Jeeps, I'll just say plan to go in there and try not to dig it up too much.

Jeff I hope you are driving the Jeep this weekend.

Great, I have one of your timers and couldn't live without it. It'll be nice to meet you..Evan Clarke
