Ahoy, everybody -
I wanted to put this out so you can make plans... the first annual Semi-Colon Reunion will be in Biloxi, Mississippi February 4, 5, 6, 7 (or any combination of those dates you want - you can even stay over until the 8th which is Fat Tuesday or as we call it down here "Mardi Gras"!)
Biloxi is located between two of the best Mardi Gras cities in the US - Mobile, Alabama and New Orleans. There will be parades just about every night in both cities, plus there are casinos, top name shows, and beaches in Biloxi. Temps should be in the 60's or low 70s.
If you're short on cash, you're welcome to stay at my place, I have two bedrooms, a couch and plenty of floor space. And of special interest to the semi-colons, TWO bathrooms.
One of the most exciting things to do will be to have dinner with me aboard the mighty Coast Guard cutter DECISIVE - and get a complete tour, too.
Come one, come all - I'll pick you up at the airport (Gulfport, MS - GPT - is closest and cheapest with Delta, New Orleans - MSY - is usually the next cheapest and is 90 minutes away and Mobile - MOB - sometimes gets good fares and is about 45 minutes away). All I ask is that you RSVP to me so I know how many folks want to crash at my swinging bachelor pad and how many folks I need to get at what airport.
Should be a ball meeting all of the people we interact with on a daily basis! Looking forward to it!
