Everyone meandered from the group picture taking event back to the Hub. I stopped off in my hotel room to get rid of the tote that held my stool – it was making me drag my feet – and wash my sweaty face. Entering the Hub, just around the corner, I noticed a jazz trio, got my hand stamped with a star (proof I was of drinking age?), found a good spot to sketch and then, when the trio took a break, got my first glass of wine and happily sipped. Sigh. It only took a few sips before I was talking to everybody who crossed my path, stood on line for pizza and spinach thingies, got another glass of wine (!) and settled down for the announcements and raffle and silent auction and goodbyes.

There was discussion about dinner. Benedicte and I, after no discussion, headed out to Dunkin’ for an Ice Cream Dinner. Perfect.
