I believe I have all of my fly swap flies still. I have only used a couple of them. And then at one point I thought it would be cool to shadow box them and have all these flies hanging around from swaps etc. Just never got around to shadow boxing them.

In addition to the sweet flies at the swap, I found the shirtless picture of Chris posing as Poseidon a bold statement and artfully done. Hanging it above the kitchen table definitely takes an elevated level of Moxie. Bravo sir!

I'm glad all of you were out of my house by 8PM so I had time before I went to bed to reconstruct the shrine to myself that I had to dismantle before you all arrived.  It took about 30 minutes to light all 90 candles.

8pm?  Who was the last? :lol

I got out of my truck, with a case of beer and a bottle of whiskey, and promptly slipped on the ice, and wailed my head off the bumper of my truck.  I'm surprised I didn't knock myself out.  My neighbor saw the whole thing, and invited me over for 6 more beers.   :chewy

I believe Dean was the last one out the door. Dennis and I left just before that.

Yikes!  Hope that bottle of whiskey survived your fall.

Great to see everyone and share some laughs.  Thanks again for hosting Chris, and thanks for the great collection of floaters  ;)
