Meet & Greet, May 13, 2006

meet the many new ones. We had a few other short visitors whose
names I didn't catch. And I think we drew a few stares. How often
do you see that many classic FSJs together at once outside of a

headed into the food court for grub and more chit chat, then back
out. Weather was gorgeous, but eventually we all had to head our
