Good for you MF. Last year I blew off the convention technically. It was within driving distance of where I live. So I went and handled a privilege in the morning, and then drove back home. I tell you Long John Silvers never tasted so good on a Saturday afternoon. The only thing I regretted was missing the pledge that was rescited. This year the convention is in an area where unfortunately I'll have to check into a hotel, plust my elderly parents need my assistance. On top of that I accepted another privilege. In a way I'm looking forward to it. Dying to hear the talk on "this generation." Plus to be honest, there's some old friends I'm looking forward to spending some minimal time with.
