      Also, for any of ya'll that don't have Facebook (BRIAN), I was at a shooting for Drop Dead Diva yesterday. And it's episode 408. You WILL have to watch it. Probie actually leads a scene (yay) as he wore Cali plates (sadly I was not allowed to take pictures) and I was sitting I believe it will be stage left of a scene. You'll probably just see my back but still, I was there. And I may be walking around in a few scenes as well. Anyway, you'll have to watch it!
      Sweet. I will have to look for it. What network is 3D on?

      Also, pointed out to me by Michelle, SoWo will have a major "suck" factor this year as they aren't allowing pop-up tents/canopy's on the field this year. Announcement was made on their Facebook page. They say it's a liability factor as well as a physical restraint.



      Aside from that, the show should still be a blast. Bring some sunscreen, beer, and an umbrella as a portable shade. I'll be bringing a cooler and snack trays again this year.

      "Physical restraint"???
      What the hell does that mean???

      Just for my compadres here in the Athens arena: if you don't already have one of these, you need to pick one up at Ingle's for the low, low price of $19.99 USD.
      It will be very handy this weekend at SoWo.

      Then they should say, "Space is limited" or something like that.

      Oh well. Hope they have the tent police out in case there are some rule-breakers.

      Looking forward to the show.

      Officially there's no "spot-saving" but that I don't care about, I'll save spots if I dang well feel like it. No one can ignore painters tape and a sign

      I guess the question is: How many spots am I saving?

      Michelle, you still in?

      Rob, Michael: You two coming?

      Wilcox? Last I knew Tamika & Herbie were working flowers.

      Anyone else?




      SöWö bound from Mall of Georgia at 11:00 AM!

      I dunno at this point. I want to, but this AC repair is sucking my funds...just wasted the big bottle due to a leak....$40 down the drain....

      Remind me again why I bought a VW?! Ugh...

      I'll probably be there regardless, but I'll probably just park offsite somewhere.

      We'll have a spot marked off as soon as we can. And once the show starts, we can just set up chairs, coolers, and tables to ward off others until the crew gets there.

      It may just be me and Michelle.
      I hope they will leave room to allow for an early exit, if needed.
      Maybe set us up near the exit side of the field...
      Looking forward to the show and seeing everyone.

      Summer and I are here. Show is going pretty good tonight. I'm really liking that we came up on Friday.

      There's free Hot Air balloon "rides", so that's awesome.

      The spacing on the field is actually working out pretty nicely, BUT they direct you in and where to park, so sadly, I couldn't mark off any parking spots for anyone coming up.

      VW is here again this year, giving away stuff again. They're even raffling off 20-min sessions with a professional photographer on a blank, white stage and they take photos of your car.

      SoWo is going good. Not very good planning though.
      Ran out of space so they cut off anymore cars on the field. Oh well. Summer, Matt and I are on the field so all is good.

      Good Lord! That sounds sucky. I had an overall good time this year. A lot more respect for beetles than I expected. I was even able to do a burnout for some guy who was just BEGGING for it (didn't get caught - Thank GoD!). Ended up showing up after 3pm, and left around...2am. lol Was great though! Lots of fun times I can already remember!

      There were more Beetles there, although there was one Turbo S that looked good, but it also kinda didn't. It was silver with the black hatch. I dunno, just looked a little odd to me. Each to their own I guess.

      Didn't get as many pictures this year as in the past, but I did snag a few, as well as photos of me, Summer, and her friends Cameron and Warren as we did tubing along with river. Yes the water was VERY cold.

      Photos can be found on flickr under "Southern Wörthersee 6 | May 2012".
