"Sunday's cruise got
off to a rollicking start with some screwball antics from Vdeb driving
across the memorial bridge a few too many times."

will be explaining THAT comment later!)
Ask Tina Corbin whether
she thinks it's necessary to wear a seat belt when I'm driving?!
Nice picture of Tina Corbin!
Stoplight spotter extraordinaire!!

The area behind them was the place where Houseboat was filmed.
Look! There's the tall, pointy
Hairy VDeb & Emily
Whoever took this picture needs to be
I was standing there one second, and the next second ... Woosh!
Perhaps it was the sight of the MEMORIAL
bridge that knocked me off my feet!? What do you think

A plane takes off from Reagan National
only days after it reopened.
Eww! I don't want to have my picture
taken with HER!
There were three mother/daughter pairs
There were three Deb's amongst us.
There were five significant others in attendance.
(All were great sports and carried a ton of stuff for us.)
There's that tall, pointy thing again.
No matter where we went, we'd see that thing.
And who is this girl? She keeps popping up in all my pictures?
Emily, ZoŽ & Aileen
Another mom & her kid.
The mom on
the right chokes the mom on the left's kid!
And the mom on the left smiles about it!!

I wore my hair down, because the wind
gives me a terrible earache.
BUT, then there's the combing out afterwards.
Diane looked at my hair, then she looked at my comb and she said,
"It isn't going to be easy and it's gonna hurt!"
It wasn't and it did!!
It all ended too
soon! And it ended sad. As we were car-pooling to the
Metro to drop off those who were on their way to the airports, the
radio was announcing that the U.S. had begun bombing
Afghanistan. Our brief respite from the pain of the past month
came to an abrupt halt.
Debbie Moran said so well
what I felt about this weekend:
Dear CV2001 Attendees-
Thank you from the
bottom of my heart for this weekend together. As you may know, the
events of Sept. 11 put a cloud over my spirits. I had mixed
feelings about the whole Caryvention. But, each of you raised my
spirits and reminded me of the good that still exists in the world.
You, each, embody a true hero. Over the past several weeks, we have
seen examples of amazing heroism. But, heroes do come in all forms.
Someone once said that a hero is not a person without fear, but one
who exhibits courage in the face of fear and sacrifices to do good for
another. Each of you made the financial and emotional sacrifice to
come to D.C., less than two miles from the Pentagon, to join in some
fun and to be together. That makes each of you a hero. And, to
Voluptuous Debbie, who for me is an angel on earth, the words
"thank you" seem trite, but there is no other phrase that I
know of to express my deep feelings. I enjoyed meeting everyone and it
was my sincere wish that we could give to you an unforgettable time.
In a post a long while back, I joked that the point of the Caryvention
was really to meet Deb and I and that Cary was trivial to the whole
thing. Although it was a joke, for me Cary really was trivial. It was
an honor and privilege to meet each of you. Cary had a jovial, giving,
kind-hearted spirit. Each of you are a testament to those same
qualities and more. Be happy and be safe.
