Depending on time, energy levels, finger strain, and how many white balloons survive the trip, Brad, perhaps we could make a deal to sell Argus head balloons (the full body one, which I hope to just present to you regardless of anything else, would take too many balloons; still using only white because local magic shop doesn't carry the recently developed Qualatex special colors packages, with gold and silver/grey).

Let's take a wait-and-see approach to that Lord E.

I'm already planning on taking a HUGE amount of merchandise to sell -- and there's very limited table space.

More Greystone merchandise...

My wife bought be this great machine that makes laminated magnets (as well as stickers, etc.)

And I got to thinking over a conversation with the same wife...

Plastic on the front, magnet on the back... I could make a blank three-panel comic strip, include small cut-out GI characters and a few blank word balloons... throw in a dry-erase marker and I'd have...

CREATE-A-CARTOON!

Put 'em up on your 'fridge, position the characters in the comic strip panels, write words in the balloons with the dry-erase marker, and CREATE A GREYSTONE COMIC! (Bad puns and deep-roots storylines not include.)

You get: three balloons, One Samantha, Two Lightning Ladies, Two Macs and Two Arguses, and One dry-erase pen. All cut-out laminated magnets. All fun!

They will be on sale in San Diego while the very limited supplies last!

If my wife asks, I was only admiring the shirt.

Hey Paul! Were you in San Diego? I kept looking for you, but couldn't find you! I'm gonna be p-o'ed if you were there and I didn't get a chance to say hi! :D

Right on the nose, Troutman. Then I had to jump BACK on the plane and go back home to RI, because my grandmother passed away. I wish I could have stayed, but...egh.

Thanks, Brad. Like I said, I was REALLY bummed about having to leave (and for other reasons, obviously), but I didn't have any REAL reason to be there. My book was supposed to be there for me to promote, but it wasn't, of course, and NOW I hear it's getting pushed back from August to October. Ugh. UGH, i say. I am mad at Keenspot right now. Oh well.
