Tex-scratch 2011

Well....we waited all year for this.....and it's Officially started

I was met at the airport......imagine....being sleep deprived, walking through the second airport of the day, looking for your luggage and hearing "some" lady saying your name................
Diane Never met her before, never talked to her before, and here she picks me out of a full airport of people straight away BLEW my mind

Gathered up my luggage, headed out the door to get Rod who was plein air-ing at a Japanese garden.
Did I mention.....IT'S HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyway....we get there and see Rod in his element......an animal in his natural environment. Diane posted up a few pics already but I'll add a few more

Cathy FINALLY arrived......then Angela and Steff We went out to eat at a place that's famous for it's puffy tacos.....I had Fajitas It was DAMN good.
We then headed back to the hotel and invaded the Lobby lounge. Then the Royalty arrived Princess Diana Lee and Steve, her Hubby
We sat around and talked and laughed and talked and laughed and well....you get the idea
I'm gonna upload some pics shortly...........
Did I mention I haven't smiled this much since..........last year in Indy

Re: Tex-scratch 2011

Thanks for sharing all this. Keep em coming. Looks like you are all having fun. I think Cathy needs to see an eye specialist. She would be such a pretty girl if she didn't have that turned eye. LOL

Re: Tex-scratch 2011

Imagine how much better Cathy's boards would be if her eyes weren't so messed up

Bummed that I'm not there, but glad the adventure in TX is off to a great start. Thanks for documenting the festivities, Allan!

Re: Tex-scratch 2011

ell alright. I got some sleep! It's 5:00am! Wahoo! We made it to bed about midnight. I think I fell asleep in the elevator lobby on the way to the room!
before I go any further I want to say thank you to Diane, BordLady. She has gone so far out of her way to make us feel so welcomed. From picking us up at the at the airport, setting up the hotel rooms, making sure we get some good eats. I know I'm not alone in saying THANK YOU!!!!!!
Now that I have some sleep I am READY to get this PARTY STARTED! looking foreward to getting some Big Time Texas Scratch in!
more later with pics

Re: Tex-scratch 2011

I'll tell you what Harold would do. I'd be nervous as a horse in tennis shoes, grinnin' from ear to ear, looking over anybody's shoulder that even appeared to be scratching, that or scratching something myself hoping some of the great scratchers there would come over and help me out. These workshops are the greatest things, where else can you learn so many different things from some of the greatest scratchers in the world just by being there. I am insanely jealous of those that are fortunate enough to attend. Thanks every one for sharing the pics and a little of the experience.

Re: Tex-scratch 2011

I'm with Harold...insanely jealous...only of not being there with all the folks, not the heat!

Good reporting Allan...you're hired...keep up the good work!

Cathy...they have surgery to repair that eye, you know!
