Good times in Richmond.

Ran into an awful lot of friends and caught up with many in the Blogging world that I hadn't met personally. The Convention was a great place to have them all in one place for one massive visit.
Vince Harris was out front, as usual. Vince is the brains behind and has actually matured into a fine young I slowly age. But that's the circle of life.
Aside from the obvious Bloggers Row coverage, contributor Salem Republican was there, as was Kelley in Va., Carl Kilo from,and a few others that I chatted with.

I visited my home contingent, the Culpeper and Madison contingents, and ran into Rep. Ed Scott while I was there. I visited with Lt. Gov. Hagar for a moment, I ran into Bob McDonnell, and Bill Bolling while I was down on Blogger's row..


This was a whirlwind of activity, and while it provided me with the chance to see so many republican activists and bloggers in one place, a primary would have yielded better results, and coupled with a Statewide blogger's convention somewhere in the State......both could have been accomplished.

It was great to meet you Dean. I wish we could have had more time.
Things didn't go our way with Brownlee, but we have a great ticket that I can support....And John will be back!

Wow. Nice picture. You clean up real good. Who knew?!

Carl, you're absolutely right about that. Brownlee's excellent resume will be the structure that launches him in the next cycle. He is such a great guy with a winning personality, I can't see him being attacked on much more than his positions on matters. They certainly will not be able to pick apart his selfless devotion to country, and his top drawer legal mind.
Hope there will be other chances to catch up. I haven't made my mind up about the Advance, yet.

That's what my wife says. Cept' she has REALLY seen me at my worst.
