OK, first I apologize for the poor quality of this photo. It was dusk at the restaurant, and I was using my cell phone and not a real camera, and my cat jostled me, and everybody was talking and distracting me, and I got hit by a tiny lightning bolt just as I took the photo, and 17 other excuses that I'll have to invent as the day goes along.
So as penance, I'm including a far better photo (also including Vic), taken during the same meetup with the same people. The second photo is all of us holding up our newly obtained cannolis. There was something special about the cannolis, which is why I took the photo, but I forget. Probably one of us spent hours making the cannolis by hand, and now I've forgotten who, because I'm a lump of horrible nothingness.
I don't know who any of those people are, and we still pretend to have anonymity, so don't ask me to label the photos. If you know them, fine. If not, come to Myrtle Beach on Oct. 11 - 13 and I'll tell you there. Vic is on the left side of the table at the very end in the Saddle Peak Lodge photo, and he's the only one with half his face hidden in the cannoli photo.
It's very emotional for me, looking at those photos. They're only 6 years ago, and yet two of us are no longer around. I miss ducky and vic tremendously.
