At the last meeting their were awards given out, And as I recall SOMEONE (NOT NAMING ANY NAMES (coughing CLIFF)) left theirs on the table.    #1 Son and I were going to give him so much grief about it, but we decided to be nice to him for once.

I would love to attend this wonderful event this coming year, but who knows what the next months will bring.
 
I am also thinking of joining my favorite band for a week in Ireland in June, so I got to do some serious number crunching and hopefully the numbers work.

The best part of the whole event is the 'fellowship' we share while enjoying some great food too. I really like meeting folks who I share "threads' with ,'live and in person'.  It has been 8  years since the first gathering of a small bunch of guys came together to do this, and that was just a couple of weeks after a bunch of the SoCal folks had met on Superbowl Sunday of 2004 In Rancho Cucamonga . Lisa was there, as was Red Patti and ET and Glenn and some others.  It was FUN !
  I don't get out near as much as I did 8 years ago, but I try very hard to keep this annual reminder of friendship and good food on my agenda.

Roz and I are in at the same hotel most of you are staying.  Admiral Semmes I believe.  We had always stayed at the Marriott just three blocks away but we wanted to stay with the rest of the group.
 
Al, you are correct as the best part of the trip is the fellowship. Next is the food and the next is the evening cocktails with all that wish to attend.

I already planned our itinerary for our 7 day trip  which to TTM's chagrin is planned well in advance even for me.... but since this is our (Sandra and I) first big trip together it just made sense....(yes she likes to plan in advance too)
-We'll be flying to Charlotte on Wednesday February 13 and drive to Mobile the next day with an overnight stop in Birmingham
- We'll depart Mobile sometime in the late morning early afternoon of Sunday February 17 , overnight in Atlanta and then spend the next couple of days in Charlotte visiting friends and relatives.
-We'll fly home from Charlotte Wednesday February 20 in the late afternoon.
--
There most likely won't be a trip report since many of the places  we will visit will be places I visited this past February and August, but I will add highlights and photos of new places.

Absolutely, of course you can join us.  Although it's Valentine's Day, we are going to be having a very "unromantic" dinner at Miss Myra's .  I may even have to get some Banana Pudding "to go" for everyone in Mobile the next day, but I'll have to check first and see if our hotel has a fridge.

We'll be staying at the Residence Inn, Homewood, as it turns out they do have a fridge in the room. .
Depending on how early we get to Birmingham the day before, we will either do some sightseeing that morning in Birmingham or in Montgomery on the way down to Mobile.

Hello all ,
I love reading and seeing the pics form the Annual Glee Club and other meets .
Unfortunately the geographical location of the meets  along with two little boys of 8 and 3 , dont allow me to jettison off too often to meat ups .
I do wish you all much fun and camraderie .
FYI - Seafarer John is not well and  prayers are needed for him , I last seen him at a holiday get together last Dec at Coney Island Rest. in Middletown NY with  his adorable wife Gail , Brooklyn Bill and Ginny , Coney Island Lou and a few others .
I have recently talked to him via the computer and please say some prayers , thanks all .

You took the words right out of my mouth.  They had a tornado earlier today.  I  haven't heard any reports about damage yet.  If I hear anything, I'll post it.

Here is a look at the tornado that went to the westside of downtown.  You have to love the bible belt commentary.

All the reports I have read and an email from a friend down in Mobile, it was a massive twister but not a strong one.  It did some damage to one of the schools and several homes and a church.  So all in all.  They got a holiday miracle.

We have been off line for a day or two. Sorry to read that our friend John (Seafarer) is not well...and hopefully he will recover shortly.
Also the Tornado damage is evident, but so far it hasn't been reported as extensive. Again, our thoughts are with the folks in the Mobile area.
 
We had a close brush with this storm. Our friends north and west of us got almost a foot of snow and roads were/are a mess. We got only an inch or so with sleet and ice causing more of the problems than snow. Temps above freezing are melting the problem as I type.

I booked our plane tickets earlier tonight! We'll get into Mobile kind of late on 2/15 (11:30 pm landing), we leave Sunday evening. We are really looking forward to seeing all of you!
 
I'd like to say we've used up all of our bad luck with storms and flight delays by having a flight to Texas scheduled on 12/26. To make a long story very, very short, we arrived on 12/28 in Dallas, just in time for Ralph's family's belated Christmas dinner (not everyone could make the 25th). 
 
However, I know better...we have an inexhaustible supply of bad luck with flight delays, and a lot of good luck with other things. So, we hope to see y'all that weekend, do not count on us for a sunrise Saturday breakfast.

Can't Johnnie get a cheap flight to New Orleans or Jacksonville and drive over?  or some other 'within driving range airport.???
 
 We'll save the speeches and dancing for Saturday night at the Brick Pit.
Friday I will ask Wintzells to have space for us at 5 PM. That gives us two hours of "Happy Hour Beer and Oysters" before the serious dinner gets going.  I am determined to get some of the West Indies Salad there this time.
 
The floor is open for suggestions for breakfast and lunch on Saturday so the late arriving folks can catch up on their calorie intake before the group hits the Brick Pit that evening.  I too would like to insert a stop at Dreamland sometime during the day...but not sure when! What with BBQ on the menu for dinner.
 
Lori and Ralph, Hope you get in in time to get some rest before Breakfast...where-ever it will be.

Lisa,
Not wanting to 'brag' on the Happy Hour time a couple of years ago, But I couldn't stop...5 dozen raw on the half-shell during that time..with an equal number of beers. Since I am not much on the beer drinking I finished only two of those during the appetizer marathon... Then is was Shrimp and Scallops and Crab Claws for dinner....thats why there was no West Indies Salad that night (for me).  I think Padre Rick kept up with me that evening. During Happy hour the Oysters are half-price or about $5 per dozen.

I want to see this. I know lleechef can put away at least two dozen, probably two and a half. Now if Ann can down the other two and a half you're going down to defeat, Mr. Mayor.
 
Me, I'll be sticking to eating already dead oysters, preferably with spinach and stuff maybe fried.

Al, as a "Modest eater" as you stated, it is a embarassment to myself to be around folks who can pack it away.  I sorta wish I could do that but I have limits.  Perhaps it is because of my age???  I do not now.  I do believe I ate a dozen raw and ordered a dozen fried at dinner which I could not finish.
 
Roz does not eat oysters period so count her out.  I guess it will be Lisa and Ann vs. BB and the Mayor.
 
I sure do enjoy the raw oysters though and at happy hour prices, that may be my entire dinner.
