Lisa and I had a great time in Buffalo this year. No competition drama--I had fun getting 2nd in the props competition to Ryo Yabe (he's the man). Took my $100 prize and bought 5 Henry Delphins to replace my Renegades. I had a blast hanging with the Brits and the Japanese who had come to visit. I also spent some time getting to know Ole and Thomas Dietz more--studs. I also got to do the Cascade of Stars--twice, actually. I did my new diabolo routine and also got to be in Jay Gilligan/Tomoko Tokushige's creation. Cool.
