While I had to cancel both this and Ed & Kevin's shows while I care for my wife, I will be making a cameo appearance tonight. Hope to see some of you there.

Had a nice time at Paul's Fall Festival. Not as many card dealers, but many comics, toys and movie posters and photos. And there were still cards there. Picked up a few from my want list. Got a beautiful Connie Faye sketch. Will post pictures and full report in the next day or two.

Nice report and nice photos. The show looks as if it is very well run and full of all sorts of stuff people would want.

So.....................

How come there is nobody there? Confused

Just read your report. Don, is there a way to contact Connie Faye re. her Sister Veterans prints? If there are any left I'd like to purchase one, as I'm a Marine Corps veteran myself. I'm always interested in donating to things benefiting vets in need. Smile

No Debi, US Army, but I have a lot of USMC friends.
I'm pretty sure there were some prints left over.

We have an interview today on the NSU blog with Fall Festival show promoter Paul Maiellaro. NSU's Scott Thomas conducted this in conjunction with the show last weekend and it's a pretty interesting read for anyone who would like to know what Paul and Diane plan for their future shows. Here's the link:

Received my print the other day. It looks great and is a fitting tribute to us female Jarheads (lol) past and present. Wink
Thanks again for mentioning these, Don. Always want to support vets!
