Hey Guys:

I really do not know any of you, and didn't get included on the list. I feel like a "one off." But I am coming, with sweetness and full heart. Looking forward to making new friends.

Life is really about joy. Although I just lost my partner, I am doing well. I look forward to greeting you with all my heart and joy . . . and I hope to come to know in heart and happiness and fun and adventure you guys. Other than New Orleans, Chicago is my favorite city!

I can be a bit shy, but once feeling safe, or after a few beers . . . watch out! I can be a Hellion. . . I come with a tail. And pulling it could result in unforeseen consequences :-)

With kindness, respect, and love,

Hi Fisher,

I'm new to AMG too. I just compiled the initial list from those who posted their times of arrival and departure. Please don't feel left out. :(
You are on the list now and I think I can safely speak for the others that you just as much part of AMG 2013 as anyone else.
Looking forward to meeting you, tail and all. :)

Hey Fisher

I remember how nervous I was at my first AMG in Boston.  I quickly found out that there was no need.....  We are all a fun bunch, if somewhat deficient in making timely dining choices.   :o
The toughest part is making the first connections, as you may not recognize us or we you.  We should probably all agree to meet on the rooftop bar for a drink around 4:00 or so on Thursday.  Of course, it will likely become THE place for the weekend- if I know my cocktail loving cohorts (I am sober, so will stick to non-alcoholic beer or club soda).
Looking forward to meeting you - tail and all!

Hugs,
Mike

Edited to add - Hmmmmm, maybe the rooftop is a restaurant, but there is a bar in the lobby..........

If I could have my way, we would be meeting in the Crow's Nest on a cruise ship.  One of these years, we are going to do an AMG cruise... and it will be great!  I can just imagine what some in our group would do for "formal night."

See you Thursday afternoon!

For the 2nd year in a row, I'm a no-show. But I'll be on that cruise, that's for sure.

For those attending the AMG for their first time, trust me...You will have a GREAT TIME !! You will be welcomed and there will be lots of hugs, and hand shaking ! The first AMG we, ( Ed and I) attended, was last year in Washington, and we had a fantastic time.  My only complaint, was it didn't last long enough.  There will be plenty to see and do, and if you want to kick back and take it easy you can do that too.


When we arrived last year, Phil D was outside the hotel when we pulled in. He spotted us , but probably didn't know who we were, although we had Florida plates on the car ( and I didn't know who he was),  I said to Ed, " I am going to ask that guy if he is here for the AMG." And I think that is how I approached it.  :) An hour and a half later, Ed, Phil and I were roaming around Washington DC site seeing, and having a great time !! ( Thank you again Phil ! )

The Meet and Greet is a great time ! ( from what I remember  :P  ;D    ), and the Memorial Service is exactly that,... A time to reflect and to remember those loved ones in our lives, that we have lost to this battle.

Ed and I will miss seeing everyone this year. Perhaps next year !


Enjoy Chicago and have great time !

Fisher -
You will have a wonderful time - as will all those newcomers and returning.

Last year's AMG DC was my first and Rocky welcomed me with a giant hug...

I had the opportunity to pay that hug forward when a bit later I met Ed and Ray in the parking lot coming into the hotel.....

Rocky put me at ease and so did Ed and Ray (we enjoyed walking the mall in DC together on Day 1).... Soon, everyone else had me feeling at ease as well.

Because of circumstances that happened a couple of months ago w/ my brother, I am not able to get the time away from work and school to make it to AMG Chicago.... but be assured that I will be there next year (wherever it is held) barring any life shaking events...

Go, meet, greet, hang out, and mostly ENJOY the new friendships and strengthening of what have been many times up until AMG "virtual" relationships that occurs.... AMG is a wonderful time spent with those whom we share a unique bond.... regardless of where we all individually come from (past, present, geographically, or otherwise).

-Phil (who will surely be missing seeing everyone - but who knows I will enjoy reading the full reports here on the forums during and after the event).

Hey Fisher,

You will have a great time! I have been to most of the AMGs, and every time has its own flavor.

But each was wonderful. Great people who will make you feel right at home.

My journey actually starts tomorrow as I head to Albuquerque.

I look forward to seeing you in Chi town!

HUGS,

Mark

Thanks everyone. A little shy and nervous but I "adapt" quickly.

See you soon. The architectural boat ride was well worth it, though it was a bit hot when I took it in June. The boat I was on, and I guess most, serve complimentary soft drinks and snacks. I'd do it again.

My "tail" is on my front side rather than hanging off my butt  ;)  When it gets pulled I have no choice but to bear hug the puller. Growl.

I'm sure you'll have a great time.  I was so apprehensive about my first AMG and went way out of my comfort zone (including flying for the first time ever).  I was having panic attacks worrying about all the wrong things; especially about fitting in with a group of people I had never met in person before.

Within mere minutes of arriving at the hotel, I KNEW I made the correct decision.  When I returned home, I open another savings account just for AMG's as I knew it'd be a yearly rite as long as I'm able.

Looking forward to meeting you.

Hope no one is expecting any need for fancy clothes -- I'm traveling casual!!

All packed -- names list created and printed.  All that stands between me and Chicago is a morning team meeting at work (9:00-10:00), I'd skip it, but seeing as it's MY team and I need to get some info out to the gang, I guess I should go in........

See you all at the hotel -- Assuming that Mark got in OK today, he should be able to greet us all as we arrive.

Toilet tree poor  :-[

There are irons in the rooms and you'll have to do them again.   :)

I managed to finally get packed.  I started out with about 15 outfits and had to pare it down.  Allowed myself 2 per day.  Perhaps I can actually get by without checking luggage after all?

Hope no one is expecting any need for fancy clothes -- I'm traveling casual!!

All packed -- names list created and printed.  All that stands between me and Chicago is a morning team meeting at work (9:00-10:00), I'd skip it, but seeing as it's MY team and I need to get some info out to the gang, I guess I should go in........

See you all at the hotel -- Assuming that Mark got in OK today, he should be able to greet us all as we arrive.

Hugs,
Mike

Mark is now in Chicago.  Shall see you all tomorrow.

Ready to be there!

Give him a big hug for me -- give one to Keniesha too!!

Oh -- as for what happened to the rest of them -- I can't be sure, but I DID get butt dialed by Fisher -- I have a 3 minute voicemail that has GOT to be a happening bar.

I feared being a smaller AMG wouldn't be as much fun, but it was incredible.  I absolutely had a blast.

Actually the debauchery took place elsewhere....we were wise!

What happens at AMG, stays at AMG (until one of us breaks down and tells all...and this usually happens within 24 hours.)

Four of us remain....and depart this afternoon and evening.

Agreed...it was another great AMG.  Already looking forward to another one next year.

Glad you guys had such a great time at AMG '13 in Chicago, it is to be expected with whomever in our group goes.  It looks like the weather was great, it always has been every year amazingly.  Have safe trips home to the guys still there.

Now we want details, details, details.  Don't hold back now. 

Looking forward to next years AMG '14 as well. :)

Oh -- as for what happened to the rest of them -- I can't be sure, but I DID get butt dialed by Fisher -- I have a 3 minute voicemail that has GOT to be a happening bar.

I don't recall dialing your butt. But there is always next year . . . and of course, that could have happened during the periods of my memory loss on this trip...

Yes Wease! That penthouse on the 69th floor of that Lake Shore Drive high-rise you liked could be our new love-bird's nest. But you'd have to marry me first. We can marry in Maine, now . . . you know.

Perhaps someone kidnapped the real Fischer and sent a replacement?

Actually, this was the first time he got loose from his cage in about 20 years. So he had some pen up energy to burn off. He is really very shy and bashful in real life. Why he's been locked up in a cage for so long . . . well those that came to AMG now know why. . .
