What a fun entry, Sharon. It's of particular interest to me, as I've been to NOLA several times, between conferences and having friends that live right off of The Quarter.

Enjoy your time away from Lansing, and we'll see you when you get back.

they actually did discounts by drawing a slip?! I agree with you. That is really stupid. At least you have a great LYS! Hope you're having a great time anyway. =0)

We'll try for activities that won't hurt your feet or your ego in Wichita! :)

Well, now you can say you've been on a Segway. I saw a guy on one in Burlington, VT, the other day...the first one I'd seen in person.

I agree with you about pushy store employees...they really do not help me..they just get my back up when they get pushy like that. Harumph on the discount lottery.

Hey Sharon! Glad to hear from you, and that you're having a good time (somewhat). Discount drawings are one of the oldest tricks in the sale-incentive book. I don't take 'em personally, but I never see a measly 10% as a major incentive to empty my wallet on the counter, either. I'll drink any extra Hurricanes you have left over!

I, too, liked the Quarter Stitch. I only bought a couple of skeins of Koigu in a colorway I hadn't seen before.... but they were very friendly folks and it was within walking distance of the place we stayed. Did you eat at La Madeleine's?

i'm sorry to hear about your fall. sounds like you had a great time otherwise! i'm not coordinated enough to dare ride on a segue. you were so brave.

i'm glad you're okay!
