I took my wife of 20 years to this great meeting thinking she would be bored. She met family while I was in meetings, and managed to survive. We were amazed by the conference facilities, and generous kindness of staff and attendees.
I failed to see many of the "Elder" attendees and buddies I used to pal around with at previous conventions. Many of the speakers were wonderful, though not all were on topic. I would venture to say many "Powerpoint " presentations were done in the airport lounge.
My wife and I sure had a great time having dinner at Wolf Gang's in the tower. All in all, the meeting was great, and I learned much, and had no time to read a kindle book, or doze in the meetings.
I would have hoped to see many others of the "Old Folk'" but I made some new buddies. We must remember the future is with our young Sonographers.
Be safe, more to come.
