I have returned safe and the house is still standing, cats are alive, and daughter and granddaughter are safely on the ground in Virginia.

My favorite part of the show is reconnecting with long time friends and making a few new ones. My heartfelt gratitude to all who stopped by and visited and made me feel welcome. I picked up a few tips I hope to attempt this next year. I'm also grateful no tomatoes were launched my way during the seminar.

Missed seeing some faces-Fred Bowen, Rod Cameron, Mike Bissell, Bob Evans, Rex Pedersen, Brian Hochstrat, Scott Pilkington, just to name a few. Hope all of you are doing well.

Rod was our informal on-the-spot reporter and would take pictures of the people and displays and post them for those who were not able to attend. I think they must have been greatly appreciated. I enjoyed them and I was attending. I try to get around and visit a bit with everyone but don't always make it. My loss. If anyone has photos of the people or displays please post them. It's great fun to relive the show especially when I look out the window and see six inches of snow and below freezing temps.

Here are some photos of the two guns I took to the show.

Scott, that brought a smile. Made Lisa laugh out loud. Missed you. Some year I will make it to the engrave in. It looks like too much fun to miss.

As always Lee, it was a privilege to visit with you and see your great works of art.
But this year, great as your works are, it was your 17 month old granddaughter that stole the show and our hearts.
Best to you and your family my friend, keep drinking the chocolate milk, it seems to work :)

Sir Gordon Alcorn !
Thanks for the advice!
I always enjoy watching your site. And recommend to friends and acquaintances. A knife with a cellular hand is great!

Hi Lee,
It was a pleasure meeting you, Sam, Marty, Mike, and all the rest at the show. I would like to encourage the beginners like myself to try and make the trek to Las Vegas next year. You learn a ton just from going to the show. Everyone was very friendly and willing to help and share information.
