River Walkers



This past weekend, I flew out to San Antonio to meet up with a bunch of friends. The meet up was under the facade of a scrapbooking convention-- but ask me how much I scrapbooked... uhmmmm not the first damn page. The hotel was right on the River Walk; our gathering room was next door to the bar; we had plenty of space to chill out; Lesle rented a 15 passenger van (aka "the short bus") so all of us could pile together to go out shopping and out for meals, etc.
Gizzy came all the way from Germany, Sheri was in from Canada, and I was with many other friends from all of Texas, Michigan, Idaho, New York, California, Missouri, and other places I can't remember right now. In other words, it was one, big non-stop party. Since we have been home, we have shared pictures and laughed all over again. Here are a few pics that are "safe" to share!

Fabulous photos! I'm so glad that you and the others had such a great time!!!!

Gizzy said...

Seriously, you are by far one of the funniest people I've ever met. Your upbeat personality (regardless of life's hurdles) speaks volumes to your character. I'd fly around the world again to spend a couple more days with you. Thanks again for the t-shirt. I'm wearing it to work. :D

Amy Chomas said...

Cass!!! You were one of the top of my list to get to meet this year and I was NOT disappointed! My sides are still recovering from all the laughing we did this weekend! Sure hope to do it all again soon!! YOU ROCK!

Leslie C said...

I'm so glad you had a blast Cassandra! It sounds like you've had a fabulous summer between this and your Disney cruise. Your photos (even the not safe to post ones) are awesome!

Amy said...

I am so bummed I couldn't go and hang out with the funniest gal on SJ! It looks like a blast. Fingers crossed for next year!

Mona said...

I had such a blast and it was awesome meeting you!! You have the most wonderful sense of humor - I am still laughing over the special gift for Erin!!! Can't wait for next year!!!

Frank said...

I had so much fun hanging out with you! You were the high point of my trip to San Antonio. I'm glad you made it home safely -- I will talk to you again tonight.

terry said...

You deserved this!!!!!!! You are so special and I'm jealous the others got to meet you. Watch out next year!!

Oscar T. Grouch said...

It was great to meet you. You are even more beautiful in person than on line.

LesleMora said...

Hey girlie girl, I'm so glad I got to finally meet you in person! You do not disappoint. It was wonderful hearing your laughter across the room!

Cheri Pryor said...

I had so much fun hanging with you over the weekend and finally getting to meet you after all these years online!! I'm sad there was no poolside fun, but there was MUCH side-splitting laughter anyway. I hope Kim eventually gets her special message....she is *the* biggest whore of them all. =P

Nancyroo said...

glad you had fun!

Kim said...

Wow. THE BIGGEST whore? That would be quite an accomplishment considering the lineup there in San Antonio.
Seriously, though, Cassandra, I love seeing these comments about you and how you make people laugh and special you are. I am so lucky to have you close by all the time.
Thank God Cheri lives a good distance away. What a slut!

Cheri Pryor said...

Kim...you did NOT just go there.

I stand by my earlier comment since Peggy wasn't around.

Kim said...

Big words there, Pryor. I am scared, seriously. LOL.
Where is it we are meeting? Mississipi? If you are sober, we can discuss it then. (yeah, right).

Patti H said...

Cassandra so glad you were able to attend and meet so many of your online friends. I only wish I was able to attend. Loved the photos thanks for sharing!

Robyn said...

Looks like you ladies had a rockin time. I'm going to have to consider going next year.

Stacy said...

I missed such a fun time!!! I am so glad you went though Casshole. If anyone needed some much deserved play time it was you! Hugs to you my spazz!!!

Paula... said...

Looks like you had a super fab time - I'm totally jealous here! I have a weekend retreat at the end of August but I couldn't get anyone to come with me, so I'm going it alone - good opportunity to meet some new people and maybe make a few new friends in the process :)

Hmmm might even learn how to scrapbook again :0
