Always! If it's not fun, you're doing it wrong.

Gene has promised his famous chili.
Suzanne, come whenever! The clam pond awaits.
I'll make a batch of Hummus, and bring some Syrian bread or chips.
Sadly I'll be out of town again. I may need to plan the family vacation for a different week next year. Have fun everyone!
I have a couple of boxes of give-away photo stuff -- will the table be available?
There's always room for a swap table... might have some give-aways myself.
Here are the directions from Rt 95. Rt 395 people, just take the exit for Rt 85, take a left and go .8 mile to the light at Cross Rd. Right on Cross Rd and you will cross Rt 95 after a mile or so. Follow the directions from there. There is no starting or ending time to this thing. Papagene and his (much)better half will come down on Friday evening. Morning light is nice, so show when you can.
RAIN INFO: There isn't any sense in doing this in the rain, so if the weather is wet, we'll think up another date. The cottage is very small, and a big party inside isn't really any fun. Cloudy? No problem... world's biggest softbox, right? I won't be able to post, since I will be there without internet access, so make your own judgments.
Looks like I won't make this event...working on the Mansfield house that weekend (floors, walls, kitchen remodel stuff...) Have a great time down there.
I would **LOVE** to be there, but...
Saturdays (i.e. the 26th) are "Dialysis Days", and I'll be lying on my back with needles in my arm, from 6:45 AM to 11:30, leaving me with less energy than found in a worn dish rag. If I start for Connecticut immediately after, I would arrive at ....
I've tried to reschedule - not a great deal of succcess yet.
All this sounds like great FUN!!. I'll be there in spirit, anyway.
Ed, we would be happy as hell to have you with us in Waterford, but it's enough to know that, after all you've been through, you're with us - period. Dialysis may be a pain, but it keeps you functioning - worth it in the long run, I think. We'll do a Sunday,... or a Thursday or something later on. Hope all else is going Ok. We'll have a glass of something for you and think friendly thoughts. Be well.
Drew, I'll make that coffee in your case and think just as many friendly thoughts. Good shooting!
OK, Last bump. I'm going out of internet land and will welcome anyone who shows on Saturday. By my last count, it should be about 25, but then I'm an optimist. See you at the beach.
I'm baaaaack! I am forgoing the Origami USA convention for this, so you guys know how much I like ya'll. :D Hey, does anyone want to do breakfast in the early morning? At http://www.whenpigsflycafe.com/ in Jordan, CT? Say at 8:30am?
