Re: [Groop]'tis a sad day for me...

More sadness.

Due to various vacations and obligations, I also will not be attending. I know I'm going to be sorry... but I have taken off my fair share of time this summer. (and you know what else? WOMEN never cooperate...nuff said)

They are dropping like flies!!!! Finn, Chad, others before them and now
Shane! SHANE!!!! Who doesn't even live that far away!! Argghh and Argghh
again! And by the way, I have not heard from Magnus in quite some time!

Shane, here is what you do. Go to Pennsylvania, go to lunch by yourself on
Thursday and then on Thursday night tell your work fellows that you must
have eaten some bad Amish food for lunch that day because you feel violently
ill. Catch a red eye to LA (or San Diego) and you will get back in time for
the Friday Groo panel and will still have been to 80% of the thingy for your
job. Of course, that would entail fibbing, so it's actually not a good
idea. (Right, Eric?) But if you DO happen to get violently ill, it's
something to keep in mind.

Actually, the schedule bug has hit even me a little. I'll only be there for
Thursday & Friday! (You see, we all thought my older son was going to get a
summer job in the San Diego area, so we planned our vacation around that and
the Con happenned to work into things quite nicely. But then my son got a
job up around here, and so vacation plans got all turned around and I think
various people named Erin & Becky came into play as well, and oh, heck,
everything is very confusing!!!)

Take care all -Gary G.

PS  T-Shirt news in a day or two I hope.
