Well, I arrived yesterday and did my prep.

I just my ticket to get David Tennant and Freema Agyeman's autograph.

And I have to hope all the people on my list will be here today and tomorrow, because I have to drive back to Miami a day early due to that damned hurricane.

The ONE thing in the entire year I look forward to, I have to cut short.

Time to make the extra most out of it!

I really need to save up one year and go to a con. It has been on my bucket list for a long time now.

I hope that you get to meet everyone you wanted to before the hurricane ruins everything.

Instead of cutting it short, you should just stay longer to avoid the storm.  ;)

I'd love to meet Freema Agyeman.  She was my favorite Companion.

The thing is this... I drove up in a rental because my truck has 295,000 miles on it.  She can't handle another long haul like this.

I want to get the car back to their lot before the storm hits so if any damage happens, it's not on me.  Never mind the fact I want to be close by mom and my wife and her family.

I just got her autograph and picture a little while ago.  Sweet woman.  Had a bunch of laughs.

That's understandable.  I hope everybody gets through okay.

Well, it looks like Dorian is not going to hit us.  Thankfully.

I feel for the Bahamas, though.  They got pummeled hard.



RJ, I would post, but I have no idea how to do that.  I have my pictures on my phone, which I will transfer to my external drive sometime in the next few days.

The Bahamas really took a beating.  :(  I'm thankful that the storm missed Florida, though. I've got a friend there, and she's had enough troubles.

If you want to post pics and don't know how, feel free to email them to me and I can post them for you.

Glad  you had fun. I could never be able to go to one of those, but it's nice to read about them.

Glad you had fun.  I went 10 years ago to DragonCon.  Pretty wild.
