Great seeing see you and Steve at Boxboro and a bunch of other folks I've
talked with on the air. Great fun and laughs in the watering hole.
Attending the midnight Royal Order of the Wouff Hong ceremony was also a
highlight in my Boxboro attendance. Although the flea market area seemed
to be somewhat smaller in size then past years, from my side of the
table, there was a steady stream of buyers throughout the day. Many of
the conferences also seem to be well attended from what I was told or had
seen. All in all, a great two day activity and I even got free breakfast
