    Okay, so for all of us who have never been to NC, I have a favor to ask. Since I know you cannot share info & pictures until the 3rd Wave is over, how about sharing pics from previous PC National Conferences. Maybe that'll hold us over for a bit!

    Please post or share a link to any photos you have of prior conferences. I would love to see the displays and things. :)

    I've got a bunch of pics from 2007, when a large group of us all took pics wearing my fruit hat at the CS meet n greet. But they're on my local drive, not a server. And I don't feel like bothering to upload them (there's 30-40 of them).

    actually - the chocolate dessert was from the Director's lunch and the tart was from the Career Club luncheon.....both were VERY good!

    The first one is my group at the exec banquet. I am the chubby one on the end, Veronica is in the middle. Thanks Becky D. for taking the picture!

    The other 2 are lots of cheffers at Kitty O'Sheas.


    I edited one with names I knew for sure. Some are either nolonger on the board or out of PC. If you are in the picture and want me to add your name let me know...

    Thanks everyone for sharing your pictures. I found these photos from 2006 that Darcy shared with me. I didn't think she'd mind me sharing them again with you. (Thanks Darcy - they are awesome pictures!) I hope someone will take pics like this for us this year & share.

    Ann - I almost forgot to ask if you have the life like cardboard cut out of Linda ready?

    And why did you put a pic of me in there with that stupid band aid on my nose??!!!

    And yep, that tart was something else. For a minute or two I thought maybe Ann left her fruit hat and it was petrified and served on a plate! There is nothing like a fruit topped hockey puck! UGH!

    And Yeah I thought that gold top was awsome!

    I guess I have to say I take a good photo as several of those posted are my handy work!

    Vonvoage Linda! We are so gonna miss you!!! Enjoy China!!

    I am so still sooooooo jealous!

    I just got a tripod for my camera, so we can actually set up a decent timer shot this year. :)

    And, John, the fruit hat is nothin'. I just found out that my NED's banquet theme is "green." So I'm wearing my kelly green wig.

    Awesome. I met her in Miami. She has a son, right? We were laying out in chairs across from each other and started chatting for the longest time.
    Thanks!

    Yep. She's retired Air Force. It was fun to see her at conference last year because she was stationed in Germany at the time, so she had one of the longer trips to get to Chicago.

    Yes and as I recall she almost did not make it! She kept getting bumped from her flight!

    Green - OM!!! That I gotta see!!! Too much fun. I don't ever remember having a dress up theme for any of our banquets. We do have a lot of fun though with some business building games. Two years ago we had to pull a TV theme song out of hat and write a PC song promoting the new products to it. We did the Addams Family theme. That was really funny because we had to sing it then!!
    This year - no DJ afterwards so who knows!
    But I know we will still have a good time.
    Green, Humm!

    I can fill in some names from the first set of pics.
    1) pampered1224 - ME and cheflinda - Linda Childs
    2) Debi of course
    3) Lemar Jefferies - miss ya!
    4) UMMM???
    5) Not sure who they are but one of them has awsome hair and that gold top!! Simply fabulous darling!
    6) Ann left and Diane Villanueva is the 3rd lady in from the left. I feel really dumb though - I know I know you all but I can not connect names and faces. Never have been good at that.
    7) Linda Childs again and ??? as Directors!! (I AM SO SORRY!)

    Thanks for sharing the pics (though I wish I photographed better!). I will miss you guys this year. Unfortunately, Mom has been hospitalized three times in seven months (to include a major incident in May). I've temporarily stepped back from PC this summer to focus on her and help with some financial/legal issues as well. (We aren't in the same state, so it has been a little hectic.)
    I have some photos to share as well....they are on another computer, but I'll post them later today. :)

    Sorry you won't make it, Kris.

    Hope things go well with your Mom. I know where you are coming from, as I had to also step back the first few months of this year in order to focus on my Mom and her needs. PC will always be there - and I discovered it wasn't as hard to regroup and rebuild when the time was right!

    Never realized you were tall (unless you are wearing heels) for some reason I had pictured you as short....I have no idea why! :)

    I'm actually exactly at the average height for women in America today - 5'6". (Now to get my dress size back down to the average... :rolleyes: ) But I think I did have on shoes with a heel in most of those pics. Not a big heel, but 1 1/2" or so.

    We'll miss you Kris. I was looking forward to another hug from you.

    Me too Kris! I know how hard that is so make sure you look after yourself a bit too! We get caught up helping someone else and forget to breath sometimes! And I know blue ain't my best color! So God Bless and take care!

    Here are some from 2006. The last one was all the boxes of the products I won from my shopping spree!

    Forgot to mention No. 2 is Doris' desk.

    Your welcome. Yes, it was awesome! Now I know how people who win on The Price is Right feel!! I just had to take a picture of all those boxes before I opened them. It was close to $5,000 in products. The UPS man (I miss my UPS man) asked if we had a dock when he came to the door. We were over half his truck that day:)!
