I catch my flight in SLC by 2:16, which is 1:16 my time which means I have to be there by noon. . . which means I have to leave by 8am.

I don't arrive in Atlanta until 10:20pm, which means I won't be in Athens until midnight.

Of course this is based upon the flight being on time. HAHAHAHA... who said that?

:D

I just wanted to bring this forward so our newest members can see that some of us are meeting at a writer's conference in Athens Georgia this July 23rd-25th.

Anyone else able to join the fun?

Hiss... I thought you would be shipping a coffin to carry all your stuff. :)

I'm bringing my laptop and may log on myself... but then again, I may be too tired to do much of anything.
