BridwellFest sure was a great time.

Thanks Jim, for letting Wired Bliss be a part.

Todd, thanks for putting on the event to help Jim, the support and the table space.

Ron G, Thanks for the support. I am working on your own BFest cam.

Thanks to Tucker and Dick C. for some history and gear lessons.

Thanks to all the others for the great conversations on gear.



Here is a group pic from Todd's knee during his intro.

Serious labor of love, jstan. What's with those plastic chairs?! Just kidding!

Nice mouse! Looks just like our Sammy, a deermouse (Peromyscus sp.).

Dr. Sprock, thanks for that shot of the San Andreas. Spooky!

I suppose that this might also be entitled the "Wings of Steve". But I'm certain there was no enhancement - he's a big guy, with long arms. :-)

He was totally goofing and you captured it. He definitely has a positive ape index. LOL!

I want to know more about jstan's adorable mouse guest. He? would make a fine mate for our mouse child.

So sorry to have missed this. I was planning on going right up until the last minute when I couldn't.

Jim's a great man and deserves whatever support we can offer.

...and a huge pat on the back to Todd and whomever else was involved in organizing this gathering.

I'm certain that jstan would be delighted if you took his mouse off his hands. In fact, he may have several. John may still be in Joshua Tree, working on his cottage and visiting with the neighbour - he seems to go for a week or two at a time, to make the trip worthwhile. This time he was working on the plumbing, plus trying to rodent-proof the outside of the cottage. They invaded, live in the walls, and can be fairly noisy at night.

The mouse may be a different species than those found in Seattle, but that seems a relatively minor concern.
