Hello Ann, I am pleased that you, Kathy and Sue were there. I was not expecting the three of you, and it was a pleasant surprise!! I enjoyed the T1 meet-up very much!! I think all of us did. Jennifer could not be there because her daughter was sick and had a fever. It is my understanding that there are usually only 4 people who attend thos meetings (Scott, Dean, Mike and Jennifer).
