This little write-up will be short, as I intend to go over what all happened at the conference in better detail at the blog site. But I knew that everyone was waiting for pictures, so here they are. I didn't get nearly the ones I wanted to because we were just so very busy. Lots of workshops we wanted to attend and lots of people to meet and talk to, especially those we had been corresponding with over email for quite a while, but never had a chance to actually meet face to face. We really did have a great time, even if Laura is now paying the price physically for it. She is having a lot of muscle spasms and pain and quite a bit of sciatica shooting down both legs, as well as a headache that won't quit. It was extremely hard on her, but it was definitely worth it. And the food was the best vegan food I have ever had.

Notice that in one of the pictures I am actually wearing a suit! I can count on one hand the number of times I have done such a thing. Felt really weird, as I don't feel like "suit material," but I did it. Couldn't very well have Laura looking so nice and me in a pair of jeans, now could I?

Kim Sheridan, if you remember, wrote
Animals and the Afterlife: True Stories of Our Best Friends' Journey Beyond Death
. I have written about this wonderful book before. It has stories in it from peple from all over the place and from all walks of life, including two from Laura's mother and sister in it. If you order it through this link, I will get sa small percentage to put towrd my work. It was great meeting her in person. What a caring person!

Howard Lyman is the one who wrote MAD COWBOY: Plain Truth from the Cattle Rancher Who Won't Eat Meat

Erik Maruc latest book is entitled Meat Market: Animals, Ethics, And Money

And, if anyone can please remember the name of the actress pictured in the photo labeled Just Shoot Me actress, please, please tell me. I have drawn a complete blank.
