on the way home from the Revelations
Photo Shoot in Maryland, I was going to be heading straight to the
party you see below, but Heather wasn't feeling good, so I dropped her
off and headed to Fiddlesticks in Manhattan to meet up with the members

out, leaned in my window and started hugging me furiously. I couldn't
see who it was, nor could I see the road in front of me. When he finally
leaned back out, I saw it was Keith (an ECG member that I haven't seen

Nat! Natalie had come over from Germany with three of her friends from
the German Garrison of the 501st. Of course, they got pretty drunk!

of the ECG?!?!
