Thank you, Alan! My 10 year old son has been talking about going for weeks. We can only get to the show Sunday around 2. Hope there is something left for him to do.

That jacket is kinda getting thread bare if you can believe that. No, nothing special that I can think of. It will be kinda good to harass YOU in person again. I was thinkin-O bringing several 90 lb boxes of lead, just to see YOU sweat while carrying them into the arena while I :sleepy:

I'm bringing my "kids" (Maggie, 12, Casey, 5). They've been bathed, brushed, have Bordatello, flea, heartworm, and rabies preventive.

Casey's especially adapted to licking tape and envelops. And hands, faces, etc...:grin:

They're my avatar...:grin:

This will be Evgeniy(age 13) and Jonathan's(age 15) third year at NEAF. Last year they worked for Alan and are soooooo excited to have the honor to work for him again. EVERYTHING Alan said is true. EVERYTHING!!!! I cannot say enough about the experience they had! Here is a post from last year about our greatest take home from NEAF. Please take the time to read it! Once you do, you'll understand why you have to bring your kids!!!!
Like Evgeniy said this evening " More great STAFF ADVENTURES!" This year Tatiana, their 10 year old daughter is coming too! She's got a job helping Vic Maris and last night had her suitcase out and was packing already - she's more excited then the boys!!!! Alan - You are the best!!!!!
