Back home safely, ahead of stormageddon.  (Hurricane Sandi)  Just some light rain for the drive up and at home now.    Work called to let me know that we are gonna be closed monday, so I have a stay at home day monday to relax.   Hopefully we won't lose power to the storm.  I have a generator, so that should guarantee that the power will stay on.  Failing that, got plenty of candles,. lamp oil, and butane for the portable stove, so even if the power does go out, will be just inconvenienced for a while.  Crossing my fingers. 

  FurFright was fun.  Glad I went.  There were, as usual, a few disappointments at the con, but there were good times as well.   Stayed at the Courtyard hotel down the street.  Far superior to the Super8 I was in last year.   As it happened, my room was next to a function room that was being setup for a Saturday morning breakfast meeting, so my wake-up call was the clatter of dishes and silverware being laid out at TFE in the morning.  Slight annoyance that the room I got had a bathtub with handrails, not the roll in shower that I had requested.  But the house was full, so switching rooms was not an option.  

   The Blackjack tournament was a success.   there were the usual oopses and overlooked things, but nothing major.   The con paid for a couple of nice glasses and steins to be etched with artwork for the first and second place winners of the blackjack and poker tournaments.  There was no vore party this year.  Nobody with a room in the main hotel was willing to host one.   the snacks I brought for the vore party were mostly given away to random fans in the zoo space saturday evening.  F  I will once again make an attempt to get a room in the main hotel so I can host the party next year.   Also seriously considering arriving thursday of the con.  Seemed like lots of people did, and will make fridays for me a whole lot less hectic.  Maybe host a smaller party on thursday evening.   Got some nice prints in the dealers room.  I bid on some original art in the charity auction, but it was beat out in the voice auction.   Saw the artwork that tabbiewolf is doing for me in a sketchbook.  A whole sketchbook of art for me by her.  I'm super pleased about that.  Looking forward to getting the completed project next year sometime.
