Tomorrow, we have a blog meet-up planned with one of the two intrepid co-captains of Team Oyeniyi.

Robyn has traveled halfway around the world from Australia to Florida.  We need travel only halfway across the state to complete the meet.

Robyn’s here for a business conference . . . although, from the sound of her latest post, it seems more like a drinking convention.

Lunch is planned at Seasons 52.

Hmm . . . I wonder if Robyn will drink us under the table?

Maybe that’s how they do it down under . . . right after tossing another shrimp (or scallop) on the barbee.

Aah . . . that’s better.

Wham Bam . . . Shazam! October 20, 2012

a million dollars.”

Done!  “And a Jaguar
convertible.”  Poof!  A car. 
“Now, genie, make me . . .
