New Hampshire Convention 2008 - Sunday

Photographing the "Backroom Gals" -
the next big singing sensation.

Uh, Fuzzy, what cha doin' back there?

The first of many prints to spin.

Don't they look excited?

Would you by life insurance from this man?

"And for my next number..."

Frank hanging out with Skip "who me?" Foisy.

Will strikes a pose with one of the Duenkel's albums.
(is that really lime green?)

Shirley dreaming about Fuzzy.

Where the cool kids hang.

New Hampshire Convention 2008 - Saturday - SHORT DRIVE!

Wow - a short drive! Only 3 1/2 hours!

Great spot!

"Input this buddy"

Nothing like waiting to the last minute
to put your case together! I've NEVER
done that (cough cough).

"Wait, scissors beat paper, rock beats scissors,
paper beats rock.
Where's the part about white gloves?"

After the convention, Shirl was reported missing.
Rumors have it the Maine crowd just wanted
to "borrow" her for a bit.

Don't let their sweet looks fool you.
If you don't give them money,
they'll beat the crap out of you!

Don't even think about smacking Bob
with that sneaker Mindy!

By 1:00 am, they had solved third world hunger,
and the rising gas prices. Now if they could figure
out the airline thing so
Jen and Mark could have been here!

THAT'S healthy - well sort of.

"Scuze me, scuze me. Mainiac with a
beer comin' through"

Vermont Convention 2008 - Monday - Mary & Jamie!

I can't stop smiling because people actually got up
EARLY to hear my program!

Dorothy - 'nuff said.

"And when you're dealing with dysfunctional
groups like this one - drugs help"

Hey Kristine... How YOU doin'?

psst, hey, Jamie, ya just kinda left us here.
Jamie? Yo, Jaime!

Mary fascinates the crowd with her striptease.
What? You missed that part?

The Vermont Board
I hear you get group therapy rates for this many.

Now THAT's a family portrait!
(and a great family at that!)

"P?" we don't need no stinking "P"
(should be spelled fotograffers' anyway)

Recognition of LOTS of work!

"Do I have an opening bid for Brad?"

It's OK Jamie, this group scares me a little too.
