John Hoard at UI trying to drum up some business.
Pat Jeffries and Simon Tarr at UI in the convention center. I actually went to two conventions this week. Katie and I went to the Gulf States Horticulteral Expo in Mobile.

Ran into several old friends at the Dive Symposium including Tim Noble.
A little coffee and Baileys on Dennis Popes boat with Tim O'Brian and Glenn Higgenbotham aka Bongo.
Jed Snyder and Brett Crotty at a pre-job safety meeting.
