Well the ice cream store guy was complaining because you weren't there to buy a quadruple scooper and he was counting on a big sale.

My thanks to WOG and Mrs. WOG (Ken and Jackie) for putting up with me and for showing us around. Ken's shop is VERY nice by the way.

I snuck out in the dark (traffic was already picking up). I made it through Atlanta (Worse traffic by far than Clearwater) and am now holed up in a Best Western. Should be home early tomorrow afternoon.

It was great seeing everyone, some again and some for the first time. Special thanks to Wog and Mrs. Wog, what great hosts.

As it worked out the party today was more than a birthday celebration. My daughter announced that #2 is in the oven.
