I thought so. I remember chatting with you in kind of a mall or something like that in St.Louis. As I get older, the mind is the first thing to go. We only go a brief chance to chat in Tucson so glad to hear you are going to DC. We have another great conference planned. I look forward to catching up with you.

Hey Shannon,
How are you doing? Nice to see you on FOHBOH. Hope all is well with you and I look forward to chatting more in the future. What was your first CHART conference? I want to say Nashville but I am thinking it may have been earlier.
