Meet the Bloggers


Tonight, a bunch of us Iowa bloggers got together and met/chatted.

It was very cool to meet everyone, although about halfway through the good conversation that was starting to heat up, the folks at Wellman's Pub cranked up the music. I can't distinguish voices in that kind of environment, and the only person I could hear was Stefanie, who sat next to me. She spoke in her "high voice," and amazingly, that cut through just about everything pretty well, so I was able to stay and chat for a while longer.

I don't often do things like this. Generally, if I'm not working, I'm at home with my kids. It was very cool to step out a bit...

It's called a "head" voice! Nice to meet you!

Hey Stefanie

I'm still impressed that you once sang opera... and I had to look up "head voice" to know what you meant - but I get it now. Thanks!

Thanks for the ever so attractive photo of me. :P

And thanks for the print of Trafalgar. We're going to frame it and put it with some of our other stuff...

At least I don't look like too much of a dufus in this pic! Whooo hoo, I

Glad you could make it. Sorry that I didn't get to talk to you more. I hope that you can make it to the next one. Maybe we'll try to find a little quieter place.

Doug and Jody - y'all are the cutest couple. And as for the painting - let me know if you want a less-wrinkled print.

Hey Jeff - you bet! Would be great to get together with everyone again. Just say the word, you organizer you ;)

Hey Brett, is was nice to chat with you, I didn't realize who I was talking to until Jody whipped out that print you did for her. I saw the photo and read what you had thought of it quite a while ago, the girl that just didn't look like she belonged there. It's a nice painting you did! Looks like you may have got my good side in the photo above, too!

I must've been getting a beer at the time. Nice picure, though. Loved meeting everybody.

They're called BOOBS, Brett. That is why you stayed longer.

Well, okay - you got me. I do like boobs, I must confess. One of God's brightest ideas, boobs were.
