Were you ever! It was all I could do to supress yelling out:

"Wow, Menagerie was right...you are a 'bombshell"!

I did manage to compose myself and behave in a typical AA fashion!

I just got back from my weekend in NYC, and though our flight was delayed 3 hours due to snow and de-icing issues, we had a great time.

It was so much fun to finally meet some of my online friends, and to be able to spend so much time talking fish. The museum was awesome and thanks to Jon for the round he bought us at the bar afterwards - I don't think I thanked him properly!

Also extra thanks to Bill (Jchillin) for the garlic knots he got us at the pizza joint - to die for 8) and for being so prompt to with the update for this thread.

My pics are on a disposable camera so I've got to get them on disk and I'll post them when I get them back.

Particular thanks must go to Brian and his wife Tara, for picking us up at the airport, showing us the town, and putting us up for the night - more gracious hosts will not be found anywhere! His discus and ancistrus are amazing and *smack* me upside the head for not getting pics of them.

I had so much fun talking with everyone and I can't wait to do it again - I LOVE NY!

I echo that TankGirl - I actually had the opportunity to ride shotgun with Brian in his car in his quest to "Find Parking in Manhattan on a weekend" LOL

And let's not forget, your husband was a lot of fun too! I believe he and Brian have a project that is under development - the 500 gal tank! You're both welcome to return to NY at any time (I will let you know when and if our Fire Dept. ever changes their colors to lime green...LOL

Thanks, Bill! If they ever do change their colors it would be a shame- tradition is such a big deal there in NYC and I can see why. Hopefully next time we will get to meet your wife, and do some more of the museum, since we hardly scratched the surface. We could have spent all weekend there.

In spite of the preponderance of fishy talk, Rick did have a good time and was able to participate in some non-fishy discussions.

Incidentally, since we got bumped to a later flight Rick and I got 4 free round-trip tickets to anywhere US Air goes, so we can bring the kids up there next time (*sound of Brian hurrying to change his address and phone number* ).
