PPA Academy Extra
in San Antonio, TX
August 26-28, 2004

We convened the PPA Academy Extra in San Antonio from August 26-29 to learn some stuff, drink some stuff, eat some stuff and have a pleasant time at the Hyatt Hotel on the Riverwalk. If you don't know what it is, then you shouldn't be on this page. Go somewhere else.

If you do know what this is, here are the photos. Enjoy... I did! 

(The only photo not here is the one I told Roni Wright I destroyed. I really didn't but I like her and won't embarrass her in public any more than I already have!)

We understand that Mary Ellen was knitting for over a month to make the shirts. Then she stayed up all night screen printing them. They're cool. Nice Job ME.

I have a really great photo of Roni, taken just before this one. I could show you but then I'd have to kill you... or she'd kill me.
