A funny thing happened on the way to the Encaustic Conference

Hi guys... Did you think I had dropped off the edge of the earth?  A funny thing happened on the way to the airport....Well..no ,not so funny! The taxi texted at 3:15 am that they were on the way to take Carolyn and me to the airport. We hurried to get all the bags down the stairs of my daughter's condo and close up............heading to our wonderful adventure of a first time at the 4th Annual Encaustic Conference.

Well...klutzy me did not remember or see the two steps in the foyer as I don't go out that door much. Fell full down hard of my left knee on Mexican tile and got a resounding bang of my ribs on the left side. Bruises are still appearing. We got to Love Field and I found a gaping 1" hole in my knee cap. I ended up in Beverly ER about 3:30 that afternoon. I'm still feeling it a little but I have been so busy day and night that I fell down on blogging and taking pictures. I hope I will be able to remember some of this whirlwind trip and make a little bit of a report later on.

I can tell you without reservation that these people here in Beverly and Boston are just as wonderful and friendly as I have met anywhere I've ever been. The Beverly ER is also a wonderful place to go if you really have to go.......and the pharmacist at Rite Aid, as well.

The shows here looked wonderful. Joanne Mattera has been wonderful to work so hard for all these four conferences. We have all made wonderful friends, learned so much from the demos, workshops and lectures. I definitely want to return.
Love from "Gimpy".
