Oops, Jay blinked.

But through the magic of Adobe Photoshop:

Does it look authentic?

And finally, back in the Hampton Inn lobby, shortly after midnight, Kim Waters:

Kim, Ken, and Kat Sarracco (who took the above picture) were on their way to the after party at the Stonebridge Restaurant.  I opted not to go and was sound asleep in my room within an hour and a half.

I slept soundly until 10:30 AM Sunday.  From there, I did my push-ups, showered, and packed.  Then, as I checked out, I ran into Kat in the lobby where my mom and her friend Mandy were waiting to drive me back home after driving all the way to the hotel.  I introduced Kat to them and we all had a nice brief conversation.  Then, Mom, Mandy, and I drove back to Long Island.  Meanwhile, Kat drove Ken and Eric to JFK (John F. Kennedy International Airport) for their respective flights.  Ken was flying home; Eric was flying to Moscow to begin a tour with his band comprised of all Russian musicians.

And that concludes our journey through my weekend in Milford.  I hope you enjoyed this look back as much as I enjoyed it in real time.
