Moments of Note at WIA

Scariest Moment: Having to bore a hole on stage in front of 300 people.

Proudest Moment: Not puking while on stage in front of 300 people.

Funniest Moment: Megan Fitzpatrick yelling an expletive—loudly—while boring a hole on stage in front of 300 people. Sweet.

Most Heartwarming Moment: Being asked for a hug from a woodworker who reads my blog—Woody Medina.

Most Hopeful Moment: Seeing the considerable number of young woodworkers (20's and 30's) and even some children.

Most Grateful Moment: Being assisted by Bill from Michigan, a married couple with a cute little doggie, and two employees at the hotel in jump-starting my dead battery. Bill, thank you for
sticking around that entire time to make sure I was okay.

Loudest Moment: Cheering for Chris Schwarz' "birthday" at the Fox and Hound.

Most Breath-Taking Moment: Getting a "suck-the-life-force-out-of-you" bear hug from my new BFF, Tom Iovino.

....and lastly....

Most Blushing, Giggly School Girl Moment: Being almost touched on the cheek by Roy Underhill. I almost might never wash that cheek again.
