If you mean seeing me specifically, Gwen, no. I meant the "bummer" part, too--the principle of being forced to pay for a feast, even an inexpensive one, pissed off my other driver too much. (Not certain myself it's much different from paying a higher site fee because a site with a kitchen is more expensive, but I suppose everyone's principles have a different cut-off for "acceptable.") Good luck with the event, though, and I'll be hitting up Hanne for details afterwards. -Ingibiƍrg On Tue, Feb 24, 2015 at 7:28 AM, Gwendolyn <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > I'm glad you like it.
