FTBA Conference

We've just returned from a fabulous, relaxing trip to Orlando. We were fortunate enough to attend the FTBA (Florida Transportation Builders Association) Conference with C. W. Roberts this year. We drove down on Wednesday night after work, went to the outlets and bummed around Orlando on Thursday and were treated to dinner at Wolfgang Puck's restaurant on Thursday night. I spent ALL DAY Friday and Saturday at the pool and Wes was runner-up in the tennis tournament (he won a trophey and all)! We dressed up from the decades we were born on Friday night - Wes from the 70s and me from the 80s, and went to the finale banquet on Saturday. Oh- and Wes's boss, George, grew up with Billy Dean (country music singer popular in the 90s for songs like 'Billy the Kid', 'If There Hadn't Been You' and 'Let Them Be Little'). He was the entertainment on Friday and Saturday night. He was great and a genuinely nice guy - I'm now a fan!

We were treated like royalty and hope to be invited back next year:)!!
