Okay, who's jealous? me? Well maybe a little! I got to go 3 years in a row, so I should not complain, but dang... those GALS are gonna have a blast! I can't wait to see pics! Especially the ball room decor and the gowns.

Early on when this was first being planned, I really thought I was gonna go, so I even bought the perfect gown in shades of sheer blue and green with taupe lining. It's all sparkly and was perfect for the DF theme. If I go next year, I'm wearing it!

I hope some of the convention goers will stop in and update us. A couple are already doing that on Facebook. Last I heard a group were in Margaritaville sipping... you guessed it! Margaritas!

Sadly, since my big weight loss 2 years ago, I've started putting on weight. *sad* So I'm not even sure my gown will fit by next year. Considering that I can eat next to nothing, I can't understand the weight gain. My guess is it's because I am so inactive. Haven't been able to consistently Nordic Track since last Summer.

Sue, what does your gown look like?

Does this cafe serve alcoholic beverages? If so, I'm ordering a Margarita on the rocks w/lime and salt.

I'm sorry for the gals who can't go,

We're hoping to have some 'live' or 'streaming' feeds from Vegas, thanks to scotsmanstuart! :bounce: be sure to check out the thread to 'be prepared'!

Hello GALS and PALS ....

Has it really been 12 months since the last Virtual Convention? My, but time does fly.

Some of you may remember that last year I added a few poems into the Cafe thread from time to time. They were all to do with Gerry's movies or characters. I hope to do the same this year and have some all ready to go. They're not really fitting the criteria for the authors thread so I'm hoping they'll be o.k. here.

I thought I might start posting one or two tomorrow whilst I'm enjoying my mug of Americano ... strong of course.

Hi :wave:

Barb, Diane, Swannie and Sue!! I guess we are the first. Wish I could say I have been to a convention but I haven't . I haven't even bought a dress for one. Need to remedy that!! I so envy the gals who have been and are going this year. They will have so much fun!! I still watch the videos from when Gerry showed up. Swannie, you were one lucky gal that night! Wish I had been there but then you would have had to scrape me off of the floor after seeing Gerry in person.

See you all later.....

Oh, very classy! I hope you get a chance to wear it next year!

Okay, I gotta question...who here LOVES Gerry?

One of the most fun things about the con is that whenever the girls are gathered up in the ball room, Mel plays a fabulous slide show of all the wonderful pics of Gerry throughout his career. With each pic shown on the LARGE screen, the GALS hoot and holler, sigh and moan...whistle and scream!

Maybe we could all post out our faves of the G man!

new faves:

Thanks for the welcome. I decided not to wait until tomorrow ... let's have the first one now shall we? We'll start light and then progress from there. We can have a giggle and maybe a sigh from time to time. The picture is clickable.

Oh

Oh, Peter Augustus Calcott

A charming rogue art thee.

Oh, Peter Augustus Calcott

What have you done to me?

With eyes a-twinkle and lips a-tremble

and a body made for sin,

Oh, Peter Augustus Calcott

You drew my heart right in.

You captured my heart and

I couldn't part

from you should I even try,

Oh, Peter Augustus Calcott

I'll love you till I die.

Hi, everyone. Finances have never attended my in-person participation, so it's nice to have this chance available to participate on-line.

Since Delene posted all of her poems on GALS, I'm sure she won't mind my posting one of them here. It seems appropriate...

HE’S SO BEAUTIFUL…….by Delene

Checkered polo worn with camo shorts,

A shirt of olive drab,

All just worn a little snug,

How can one man look so fab!

Tosseled hair with just a hint of gray

That adorable facial scruf!

With a smile that is to die for,

Resisting wanting you is tough!

Caps with roosters, leather jackets,

Or sleek jogging pants of blue,

Gray green eyes behind sunglasses

How you do the things you do!

A white shirt closed with just three buttons

Makes one contemplate their fate!

Is it just for speedy dressing,

Or are you always running late?

A leather "loin" cloth, or ruffled shirt and cape.

A mask, or beard and sword.

Then jeans that button down the front.

I'm thinking, "oh my fooking Lord!"

Arms that push their sleeves to limits

To look this good must be a sin!

The way your nose wrinkles every time you laugh

Are you trying to do us in!?

In your car or in the airport,

Walking barefoot on the beach.

Can you ever be more beautiful,

And so painfully out of reach?!

We think of you at 3 am.

And lust for yellow towels,

Because you’ll never see more devoted fans,

Than your Gerard Butler GALS.!

Kathy
