One week away!

Don has a client about five minutes away from JFK High School. He has offered to take a “field trip” to that client’s house to see components of his presentation. If you would like to go, please respond here so that I can give him and his client a head count. Cut off to sign up will be Wednesday at 1pm.

Don wants to incorporate it into his presentation. Probably after his talk/the mini auction.

Maybe. Really depends on how long the meeting runs. Recent meetings haven’t really started until 2:30, and then there’s a long pause after the talk before the auction. If the meeting starts on time and runs crisply, I’d go. But if not, I’ll probably skip the outdoor part.

I agree with this

See you all tomorrow.

I've let Don know that there are some interested in the field trip, but he hasn't confirmed with the client. If it is an option, he'll discuss it during his talk.

Interesting talk and some of Harmony Ponds' designs were the stuff of dreams.

Auction was quick and efficient, even if a buyer's afternoon. So much so that I missed several lots that I had hoped to bid on.
