You and Hubby just better start saving for next year.  I think a year is long enough to save up.  Ask me after our return, about a secret plan some of us in the "West" are brewing for AMG 07, and I bet you won't be able to say no........

Thanks for the Bon Voyage, and we will certainly keep you all posted.

It's just that they need more supervision.

Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

Dear Family,

I too want to chime in and wish you all a safe journey.

I know that you all will be having the time of your lives. I read these threads about the gathering every day and hope that maybe next year I can join you.

This forum will sure be quiet for a few days.

Have a wonderful time!

Thank you very much Teresa, Lisa, Doug, Jay, Joe & Nadine.

It would be even better if you all were going, but perhaps next year you all can make it.  I certainly hope so.

You know, last year in Toronto, the only women in attendance were myself and Jan.  This time around we've got some more women, like Lisa, Zeph, Jan's friend Jen and Dingo's friend Jen.  It would be fantastic if more ladies went to these gatherings 'cause we need all the help we can get keeping these guys in line. ;) ::)  Seriously though, I hope more of you will make it to the next one, making it bigger & better than ever. ;D  You know the old saying, "The more, the merrier!"

Thanks again for the good wishes & all.

We'll certainly keep you up to speed on the happenings and of course, you'll get all the juicy details -- Rocky is good for that, especially when he exaggerates.  He just so damned good at it. 8)

Love to you all,

Trish :-*

Hi Teresa,

Thanks, dear for your well wishes on our journey to Montreal. I've got you and all the AM ladies tucked up close in a special heart-place, of that you can be sure!

Like Trishie said, we sure could use some more help with keeping our 'men' in line....we'll do our best without you, and hope more of us can be together next Gathering!

Love,

Zephyr :-*

So that means we only have to be good until about 9 pm which is Rocky's bedtime.  As to the women, well they partied just as hard in Toronto and I don't expect this will be any different.  We may even get Jan to see a real leather bar.

To all of you who cannot attend, thank you for your warm wishes.  If only we could all attend, but I promise to have pictures (including those with farm animals), the real "dirt" and enough embarrassing stories to have you all rolling in the aisles.

Just remember not to laugh too hard, because you'll all be fair game next year.

This is easy since the big fun never starts before 10:30 - 11:00.  ;)

I thought I would be on vacation only tomorrow but I'm NOW officially on vacation..YAY.... After four days of checking my report I felt confident all was ok...and not unhappy of having it done since I worked almost 4 months on that thing. Their report is in the mail...my bill is in the mail...and only waiting the '' magic words ''...check is in the mail... ;D

I'm off until the 27th...YAY again...

Sae, please forgive me... I just realized that I had not mentioned you.  I'm sorry.  And you know what?  You're actually the only one who I believe is capable of REALLY keeping these guys in line.  ;D  I can't wait to meet you. ;D  See you next week.

Hi All you lucky kids who will be headed to Montreal. :)  You already know I'm jealous of you and wish I could join you but there will always be next year.  I'll think of you everytime I sign into the forums. With all of you gone it should be quiet and drama free for a few days. LOL I know you will but I hope you have a great trip full of healing, hope,new friends and unforgettable memories. I look forward to the stories and the pictures! Hopefully the pictures will include the Horn man because I'd like to see more of him!  :o

Hugs and my love to you all,
Jeff

Thanks so much for your kinds words and well wishes.  We will have a great time, but lord knows it would have been even better (yes it's possible) if all  of us could have been there.  At least we'll have the cyber world connection, and you can bet we'll be checking in regularly and doing our best to keep everyone informed of who did what, when, and where (or whatever).


Stay tuned.   ;D
