    Default Santa Barbara Show Mar 24 - 26

    Hey! It looks like I get to stay home all the rest of the month of March... and that means

    Santa Barbara Orchid Show!!!!

    If any of you local folks are interested in getting together a "field trip" to the show, let me know. My home is about 50 miles from Santa Barbara, and we can meet here, or if you are coming from a long distance, you are welcome to drive here and use the guest room or the air bed....

    Say Wolf - how about you???

    Hi Diane,
    No taker yet eh?
    Well, I believe quite a few people from one of the orchid societies that I am associated with are planning to go. I am thinking about going as well on Saturday since I have to work on Friday and Sunday is my rest day. Although going on Sunday has certain advantages: during the last few hours, you could get lot of bargains! So if you are going to the BIG SHOW on Saturday, we could meet up there. Normally I would visit 2 nurseries in Santa Barbara first before going to the show so it could be a whole day affair! Lot of orchid purchases, I am afraid but I will try to restrain myself. When we finally visit the show, not only we will go through all the displays, we also need to go through the vendors as well. Lot of times, they have pretty amazing stuff. I will provide you with contact number and our plan as I finalize it after our meetings on next Monday and Thursday. Do you have any other preferences or suggestions?
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Oh man! You're being so harsh...

    It wasn't like I was asking to beam your eyeballs...

    Don't take your nerd-bashing out on Sir Speedo, if your're really trying to zing Moi. I can withstand the slings and arrows of jealous rage, but just remember...you chose to sip cold frosties with Tim-O, while I negotiated orchid sex with the Speedo King.

    Don't think a silly flower show will wipe out this blot. Orchid addicts, like their chosen, have loooong memories!

    Hoa, Diane,

    You definitely have to go to the show! And make sure you go and see the Aussies that are there!

    Hi Tim,
    Certainly, I will take up on the offer and meet the Aussie(s) who have gone all the way to Santa Barbara. And maybe we will make some purchases and maybe getting together for some other fun things as well.

    Hi Diane,
    Orchid business in orchid show only of course, but if our topics of conversation veer off course, even you might be sucked into the science jargon vortex, I can not help you out, okie! Hehehe!!!

    Cheers. Hoa.
