I must say that I had the most fabulous time-in-the
convention. The talks were great, the coordination
was fantastic, the company was top-rate, and the trips
were... well... let's just say that people are
realizing that I'm a pain to get out of the water.
The trips were phenomenal. During the stress of
thesis writing, hanging around with all of you is
really a relief. It gives me what brought me into
wetlands in the first place: an opportunity to go and
stand in the water and appreciate the beautiful biota
we have.

Regarding the cottonmouth that Casper managed to miss
in Charleston, I admit, it was me that hit it. I had
just enough time to register "Object in road!" before
the "thump-thump" of it going under my tires. I hate
doing that. But the alligator was quite a pleasant
surprise. How did those pictures come out, Casper?

Bob, I have some more of the floating plants if yours
didn't make it home. But if they did, you should have
more in no time. I can also send some to anyone else
who might want some. I'm also going to propagate some
more native aquarium plants and hope to put some on
aqua-bid-in-some point.

I want to thank everyone for being so nice over the
weekend, especially in answering my million-and-one
questions about the fish. It was truly a memorable
event, and I plan on attending future conventions!
