    • Ric, they always end up merging. All I can say is surgery is in early December so I should be able to make the Amherst show and the eclsts.

    • Sounds like the Embassy Suites atrium will be a happenin' place, what with Larry's swimwear and Roostah's stripper pole...

       

      Wait, am I mixing threads again??

    • Ok, that’s it. I am going to buy a speedo wardrobe and that’s all I am going to wear at the show. I’ll get the original dry cleaned as well. Question is whether I should get my Back hair shaved or spiked?!

      For those of you that have lost their dinner. Oh well.

    • As the Larry-Speedo-Rooster conversation merges into one, I'm afraid this is all I have to contribute...

      Can I come ?

       

      No!

      That's a shame as I was actually gonna hit Weavers of Wellsville on my way there for you.

    • Yes Larry is "Special". Those of who know him, know that all too well. But he is a fun, and somewhat harmless, kinda special.

       

      I don't play the tuba, but I did play the saxophone, and I still have it, somewhere around here. Would that do?

       

      As for Rooster.......

      Cliff, you said -

      "About the Drag & Brag Room. Dan wasn't sounding like he could arrange that himself. He said we could always meet in the big atrium, but that's wide open and public, so I'm thinking we LSC folks try to do a conference room deal like usual."

      The Holidome/Wyndham was not good for a common meet.  We tried that in the bar and even in room suites for a couple of years, but then we had incidents with a female bowling team and a tuba solo.  Don't ask.  Anyway, when we were vanquished to the Holiday Inn Express on the other side of town, with the Handicap rooms on the 7th floor (never could figure that one out), we tried the Board Room on the top floor and tried to shove too many people in to to small of a room.  Anyway, many of the layout crews had a party in the Lobby and then there was Larry Otis in a speedo.  Don't ask.  Anyway, except for the Larry Otis part, it was some of the best gatherings since Fred and I met in the bar in 1998 at a National Garden Railroad Convention.

      The Drag and Brag really works best under the K.I.S.S. principal.  I'd set up in the corner of the Lobby/Atrium, near the bar.  If a bunch of nuns show up in bowling team satin shirts or a guy starts playing a solo on a tuba, or Larry brings his Speedo, you might need to get a room for the Drag and Brag for the second year.  Just my thoughts.  As always be sure and take pictures if you can't live stream the whole event.  Booking photos also work.

      Stop picking on me!

      Why? Are you special? 

      Only when he wears that Speedo....

       

      Course, everyone yells ""Don't look, Ethel"..........
