MN PEZCon 2011

Our final destination for our summer vacation was the Minnesota PEZ convention known as PEZCon. Every year this convention for PEZheads is held just outside the Mall of America in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This weekend of fun allows Peg to expand her ever growing collection of PEZ. After checking in at the welcome center, it was off to do room hopping in hopes of that great score.

I found the perfect place to put one of the great temporary PEZ tattoos that were part of the welcome package.

The main event of this convention is the social gathering for PEZ Bingo. Some great prizes were available in the winnings. Everyone seemed to have fun and went home with some special memories.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.


Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
