Sadly, this is the only pic I managed as Steve in SoCal forced me at gunpoint to be his official photographer..

El Hoagie is safe with La Hoagie... (and so was I. :) )

Steve then shoved me to the ground and ran away with my film.. :(

I combined 3 photos here to show us listening to Wal's poem. By the way, Wal's voice sounds exactly like you think it would.

Hey, Paul, what's that sake?

I have a Korean client who might like some . . . . .

It was a lot of fun meeting everyone. Especially enjoyed hanging out in Matt's greenhouse with the gang afterward. Hiking to the bottom and back up gave me a real respect for how much work is ahead.

What a great bunch of palm nuts...

I guess I'll have to host a palm party like that one of these days here myself...Maybe Bo could help with the arrangements of a low cost special charter flight? No...not that airplane Don DK found in Bolivia... :D

It was great fun!  There were about 30 or 40 other people (family and friends) besides the palm nuts you see in the photos.  It was a blast!  Wals poem was beautiful.  Thanks to everyone for coming and to those of you who brought or sent gifts.  I really didn't expect gifts but you guys are just so generous.  My wife was very surprized at how very nice all the palm people were!   :laugh:  :laugh: I guess she expected them to be more like me. :D   Wayne was there also but managed to avoid being caught in any pictures.  I tell ya, Danny Lewis and Wayne are the enigmas of the PSSC.  They're never seen in the same place at the same time.  You make your own conclusions.  Cheers!

Matty,

Obviously a great day and great get-together! Best of luck to you and Jen with the house and all the palms you'll be planting there in the years to come! :cool:

Bo-Göran

PS to Gileno - I actually worked for a small firm in Sweden arranging charter flights before moving to the USA more than 30 years ago. That was pretty interesting. And no, the Bolivian DC-3 would not be in the top 50 of planes to be considered for a charter flight to Recife! :P

Wal's poem reminded me of the Graham Edge poetry from a Moody Blues album ..."Breath deep the gathering gloom..."

Of course for me that may have resulted from combining beer, aussie shiraz, sake, and Bill's Dublin Dr. Pepper.

Well, It took me awhile to get Steves approval of his photos. (I've seen what he does to little creatures with his gun.....)

Here, Steve from SoCal arrives at the BBQ with a gift.
