V-Fest dinner tomorrow

Just a reminder that tomorrow night (Sept. 12) is our big dinner party at Granville Island. Time is 7:30; dress is casual(I assume - this is Vancouver, right?) I suggest we meet at about 7:00 at the main entrance (either one - they're within sight of each other). For any latecomers, entrance for the dinner is at the back, near the wharf. See you there! (Elizabeth, we'll bring the KA - don't let us forget to give it to you.) If anybody is around Saturday afternoon, and wants to get together for a bit of exploring, email us through Taunton, and we'll send our phone number.

We're around all day, will give you a ring in the morning, probably going to go up Grouse Mountain in this beautiful weather.

We have reservations at the Granville Island Hotel.  The Sylvia was full by the time I called.  I decided the best thing to do was stay as close to the market as possible.  DH has to work tomorrow, but gets to leave early.  I hope to be in Vancouver no later 3:00 - barring any disaster at the border.  I have your phone numbers and will call you in the afternoon to see where you are at.

I think tomorrow will be a beautiful day weatherwise.  I am really looking forward to our dinner.  Thank you so much for organizing it. 

Last weekend I was kneading bagels and thinking how nice it would be the next time I make them to have that KA.  And also, I heard a story on the radio last weekend about KA's, still made in Ohio, and still running three shifts even in this slow economy. 

By the way, do you like honey, or do you merely tolerate honey?  In other words, should we bring you a big jar or little jar of honey?  We've suffered for this honey- I've been stung three times, Pat was hit four times - once on the eyelid.  The cat was stung on the foot and he limped around for a day or two.
