It was a busy day! We'll have more to report tomorrow. More photos and perhaps even a word or two. There were challenges presented, commitments made, ruckus raised, shopping accomplished, and enough Love and Respect to go around. There was even drumming! Though I'll have to find someone else's photos of that because I was in the middle of the drumming. Yeah!

It is the Inter-Galactic Convo too...see the antennas? I expected Sputnik to be orbiting somewhere nearby...and these wonderful volunteers are ready to help!
