I got *two* hugs from Leah, and one each from George (very nice person, but we knew that!), Pup, Cori, Deb, and Allen (local person, family friend).
I shook hands with Steve, Mike, Haley, and Rick and Linda. And someone Allen introduced that works with him (already forgot the name, sorry).
I talked to Joy B and waved to Allison, Seema, and Wren. Saw DI but didn't get to speak to him. Saw Timmy and heard him speak (funny) but didn't talk to him directly.
Met gentle1 and learned her name, which I already forgot.
Sat at a table with Gentle1, Sally S, my mom, (me), Pup, and another lady whose name I didn't catch (she came in just as the conference was starting).
I saw some people who looked familiar and I wasn't sure who they were (this is common as I'm slightly faceblind)
Probably talked to more people, very sorry if I forgot someone's name.
Saw the PageTurner and Best of the Best awards presented. awesome.
Lots of new folks but unfortunately I didn't get to talk to many people.
Left after 2 hours as planned. That's about all the excursion I can manage, and I usually need a very long nap after. Thanks to Gentle1 for sharing her schedule so I could see there were no breaks coming up (seriously, no breaks? at least no more than 5 minutes?).

"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." ~ John 1: 1, 14
