    Leland, sounds like a great event. I will be in Gettysburg for Caldwell's last regular season lacrosse game and senior dinner with the coaches. See you on a beach soon buddy.

    Is the former Mariner with his Tequila still going to be there? My wife was looking forward to that!

    I guess just thinking he was coming was a good marketing ploy for him, ONCE! We bought 3 bottles of his tequila and drank one. My wife doesn't like tequila but did like the Reposado. We also found a clearance deal at a liquor store that had 1 bottle of the Anejo for $27. Guess we'll just have to drink them, now.
    In the future I'll take a scheduled Edgar appearance with a grain of salt. He's spent his marketing chit with me!

    Despite the former Mariner who shall remain nameless, I and the wife still plan on being there. More hyped about getting Chester's book signed than tequila bottle anyway! Of course, the wife is really excited about hitting the noodle shop in the mall for their "soup dumplings" before we swing your way.
