Typical number of people at any given time throughout the day. Total attendance was about 600 -- not bad for a rainy Saturday.

As close as a lot of us were able to get to your grand opening. Thanks for the pictures, it looked like a great day for you. BTW I think it was Jimmy Neutron...

Here's a pic of John Davis signing a Jimmy Neutron poster for the grand-kids, Michael's kids Liam and Ellie.

You can tell from the post you corrected that I don't know a Jimmy from a Johnny. The show was a little after my time. I date back to "Meeska, Mooska, Mousekateer. Mouse cartoon time now is here," and "Hey kids, what time is it? It's Howdy Doody time!" Ah for the good old days of Buffalo Bob, Clarabell, Phineas T. Bluster, Chief Thunderthud, and Princess Summerfallwinterspring.

Congratulations to all at Astronomics!
