Just back from the state convention, it lasted until 7 PM.

Anybody else last until the end.

I was glad to meet some fellow DU'ers.

2. I meet five people at the meetup on Thursday night.

I can't remember all the names right now, I am really tired.

We had great Mexican food, and a great talk.

We need to have a Houston meetup in general.

8. I remember you, I was the one who talked to you at the end of the convention.

It was a fun convention.

The last convention here in Houston was eight years ago.

I hope to go the next one in two years, I think it will be in Dalllas.

The one in four years will be wild I am sure.

11. Yeppers, it's Dallas in 2014

I'll have to get used to the idea of going to the convention during the day and then sleeping at home in my own bed.

12. I do like staying at a hotel for a convention but I couldn't afford it this year.

I went home every night and still didn't get enough sleep.

5. I stayed until the bitter end

And it broke my heart to be the only (?) one to vote against adopting the platform, but I could not tolerate the new anti-Second Amendment language that has been inserted.

9. I know.

I forgot about the convention this year being in Houston.

The conventions are always fun.

The convention we had here 8 years ago was really a blast.

That was when Kerry was running for President, the place was jumping then.

John Edwards came to speak.
