I ended up going to Philly at the last minute, got on the Amtrak late Friday and spent the weekend with pals I haven't seen since, well . . . last month. Thanks to my good friend Mike Manley, who was kind enough to put me up for the duration and my compadres in arms at Imaginism Studios, (Bobby, Kei, "T" and Fez) who made room for me at the con.
I saw a few of my old Philadelphia friends and made a couple of new ones, next stop: North Carolina in a couple of weeks and Chicago, the week after. Hope to see you there.
