Well, we have heard from NotMax and JAFD – sounds like the meetup was a success!
What a great-looking group, and I’m loving all the pinks and purples in the photos.
Not a throng but what was there was, to quote Spencer Tracy, cherce. Good people, good conversation.
Predictions of thunderstorms but at Bryant Park it was clear and sunny, with only the occasional spot of damp pavement as evidence of any inclemency earlier in the day. Lawn dry where the concert audience was spread out.
Couple of proof of life pictures attached.
And a fine old time we did have. Sorry you [Subaru Diane] (and everyone of the jackaltariat who would have liked to come) couldn’t be there.
Early tonight am crashing, pictures will send to WaterGirl tomorrow when energy points restored.
Have great weekend, and stay well, everyone!
I will add photos from JAFD as soon as I receive them.
Guessing that Joe is Madeleine’s husband?
Goku (aka Amerikan Baka)
Looks like it was a great time!
Nice-looking bunch, and from what I know about at least some of those folks, I’ll bet the conversation was nonstop, wide-ranging, and supremely interesting!
I bet there were puns.
congrats on a successful meet and greet, now to have WG start planning Jackal-Con 23
it was fun. on the way out, walked to the F with major major major major, then of course, there was a copy of catch-22 on the seat across from me on the ride home.
@WaterGirl: Joe is my husband.
@eddie blake: Ah, you were truly one with the universe!
Goku (aka Amerikan Baka)
Ha, that’s a funny coincidence
Very nice looking group! Hope you all had a good time.
@Baud: pretty much guaranteed, with the pun-meister there!
ok weirdness in the edit window. feel free to delete the first version.
Looks like fun.
@Goku (aka Amerikan Baka):
i felt bad that someone lost their heller.
@Madeleine: At first I was trying to put you with JAFD, but that didn’t make sense. :-) Plus, I doubt that Joe would approve.
Looks like fun. Glad it all worked out.
Hah! JackalCon 23 lol!
West of the Rockies
I’m jealous. I hope there’s a meet-up in Northern California someday.
@eddie blake: But at least you could give it, if not a good home, good company. — Someone who has bid a few treasures godspeed in my time.
@kalakal: Yeah, I had totally missed all of the back-and-forth in the thread yesterday – “I’m here but I don’t see anyone”. I’m sure it was a bonding experience for all. :-)
I was in a music theory class taught by Joe years ago
@Baud: Unless NotMax is a puns-in-writing but not in person guy?
What say you meetup peeps? Puns in person?
@Bill: Taught by this Joe?
Great looking group!
I definitely like the idea of a Jackal-Con 2023. 14/10 would attend.
@WaterGirl: So you’re saying he’s only a home
@Dangerman: hahaha well done.
@Dangerman: Well played
Yes, the very same
Good to see everyone safe and sound. I had seen in the NY Post that you had all been mugged by coked-up asylum seekers bused in from Texas.
A big mahalo to everyone for attending.
Thanks for the photos!
Note for Caroline and Ivan X should they read this thread:
Was mistaken as to what the eighth language is, it’s Italian.
“Mahalo,” I take it, is “thanks”?
Always been curious: are you fluent in the Hawai’ian language?
My #31 was intended for you, in case it wasn’t clear.
Would have loved to be in NYC with all y’all tonight.
Not anywhere near fluent. Can’t help picking up commonly used words and phrases, however.
@NotMax: How long have you lived in Hawaii? Only been there once, to Maui, but it was gorgeous.
Will be 39 years on Maui come this November.
@NotMax: Wonderful! We spent most of our time in Lahaina…but we did drive up to Haleakala, wow.
Coming very late to the thread.
What a great looking bunch of jackals. Hope everyone had a great time.
Dorothy A. Winsor
A fine-looking bunch indeed!
@Bill: Hi Bill. Joe seems to be so recognizable, even from many years past!
@NotMax Italian? I also speak Italian!
(Yes this is my very first post….)
Welcome! Comment more.
What a fun group!
Oh it looks like fun! I’m so sorry I couldn’t make it–my damn Zoom went on until almost seven. Next time….
@NotMax: youze exactly who I thought you was!
@eclare: We did that 10 years ago. I caught my biggest fish I’ll ever catch on the Die Hard Extreme Sportfishing out of Lahaina!
