OH MY GOD!!!! I had SO much fun talking with everyone, I can't even tell you.
First, I want to thank Joy2bfree and Just2laws. What awesome hosts. The minute we arrived we felt comfortable and at home, that is a gift you two possess, and it was much appreciated.
Dantheman....what a sweetheart! I so enjoyed getting to know you better...(to Aztec who mentioned how cute he is, he is even CUTER in person), he has a Tom Cruise kinda smile going on!
Waiting and her husband were so cool...she wasn't the least bit intimidating and she has this charming southern accent, very lady like and dignified. Her husband had some scary AND funny motorcycle stories to tell.
Mulan and Dave were very easygoing and likeable...except for the first morning when Mulan chewed us all out for being so noisy down in the hot tub the night before! hehehe
Bruce and Dorian and Venice...what a family! Bruce is so quiet and dignified...and Dorian and Venice talk and laugh non stop...talk about some FUN party girls. Woohoo!
b_ster was such a sweetheart, helping out with the dishes and helping everyone with their computer hookups. Flower was a very quiet lady at first, very easy to talk with, and her son is ADORABLE!
Megadude was a little different from what I expected. I had kidded around with him so much in chat, I thought he would be a real character. Instead, he's a very deep thinker and wanted to interrupt our party time with questions about the meaning of life!!! Seriously, he was great to talk with, and he makes the best damn margaritas and chocolate martinis ever. I highly recommend inviting him to ANY future fests!
Jade and Roo were there too, what sweethearts. I'm sorry I didn't get more time to talk with them, but they made our beach fest complete by being the blonde babes in bikinis in the hot tub!! Gotta have blonde babes, right?
Barb and Joe Anderson, what down to earth people! Barb has so many fascinating stories to tell, I needed a weekend just with her! Joe is quite a talker too, when you get him going (and when he mistakes the long island iced tea for the regular tea !!) HAHAHAHA, I thought Joy would never stop teasing him about the whole gallon of iced tea she made just for him, but he kept drinking the other.
Last but not least, Joy and Just's son Seth was there, what an awesome young man he is! Really sharp and has a lot on the ball. He didn't mind all these strange people invading his home, and he took the time to show the kids how to do tricks with his kite. Their daughter popped in too. Their daughter is so sweet and pretty...
Thanks again everyone for an awesome weekend! It was well worth the 8 1/2 hour drive. I will do it again as soon as we are invited......(hint, hint)
