Hi everyone. Sorry I've been off these boards for a while. We had twin boys (villosa & hamata... OK, actually Benjamin & Zachary) back in October and there's been little time for much else! Quite the rascals.
I wasn't sure if I'd be able to go until the last minute... but we found someone to help my wife with the boys so I can be at the meeting. She may show up with the boys. I'll be there Saturday and Sunday. I'll have a table mostly with with Helis & Cephs and a few other odds & ends. Please stop by and say hi.
PS: my wife and I designed the conference logo.

You had some very nice plants. My names Billy. I talked to you sat morning and saw the pic of your twins. I was there with my 3 yo and brother. Wish i had more time but my brother was bugging me to leave.

Unfortunately I could not attend today, but the two days I was there were absolutely fantastic. The lectures were great, especially the ones by the California Carnivores people! I also purchased a few cephs from Charles Brewer, those plants really have potential!

Yeah, too bad there wasn't a mall or something next door that the non-cp loving wives, friends, and relatives could have gone to. That's always frustrating.

Stovepipe (The Beast) RIP My friend.
Mike from Black Jungle scored your Hummers giant. I think it went for 60. Big time score for a plant that size!
The show was a lot of fun! I met Phil Mann for the first time. He is the guy I got hundreds of ceph seed from years back.
Everyone was great, speakers, venders and the public. Takes a few days to recoup after an event like that!
My flytraps are happy to be out of there! The B52's that somebody just had to trigger are opening again.
I bought plants, traded plants, bought books, great time!

Thanks Jeff -
Those B-52s were just magnificent!
I still don't have all of my plants back in place. I think I'm going to split up that big Heli - the one that was in the display and jammed tight with pitchers in the pot that also had the flowers. I'll split up some of those Hummer's Giants too.
