I’m coming but I’m in a funk about our European friends travel situation…and frankly in a funk about the stress that Aaron has to be dealing with as his first show…no choice of his…who would have ever thought ?
I was to fly next week to what was the US epicenter (state of Washington, Seattle in particular) as I had planned a visit my resident daughter there and thought a nice opportunity to attend the Castle Rock cartridge show a short 2 hrs south of Seattle.
The show is still on, (as of today). (3 Seattle area counties have banned “large” gatherings altogether) but Castle Rock is several counties south and seems out of the edicts harm.
All that said; I canceled my flights (full credit on Delta) and I am sad not to be able to attend the Castle Rock show; but my decision is mainly based on the fact the city of Seattle is said to be a shell of itself with a palpable tension everywhere. Being this trip was to be social…that does not seem like a good choice.
My daughter is using my flight credit and flying to Green Bay (from her temporary stay in San Diego) as both her employer and graduate school are all “work from home” until at least 3/23.
I will continue my usual SLICS prep of my trade/sale stock but NO mega display this year.
I/we are excited to host our daughter but I am watching my retired profession (sports) going through changes by the day…hour…and minute.
Who’d have thunk ?
Prayers for peace for all those stressed and inconvenienced…but this is really about health (and sadly economics) on a global scale.
Let’s all stay tuned and support Aaron to the max
PS (anyone saving a few $ staying at another hotel other than the SLICS hotel…bow up and change to the show hotel)
