THE IMAGINE*NATION EXPO. 2001


PART I

The ride to Vegas, was filled with great anticipation, excitement, and many beers, well for me anyway. We tried to leave early that Friday, but no matter what I did, it just wasn't going to happen. It's the old saying, the hurry'er I get, the behind'er I go, something like that! Anyway we rolled into the Orleans just after the first show closed, and I was told the next day, that the show even ran late. So I resigned myself to the fact, that I'll just have to bite the bullet until tomorrow. With that, it was off to the casino for food and drink. Never did find that damn Creature slot machine, must a been the rum. (ARRGGGGG!)

9:00am Saturday morning, waking to the sound of the TV that was on all night, plus the bells ringing in my head from the night before, it was into the shower, wake Susie, and Scott up, then head to the bar for that breakfast of champions, a Bloody Mary, and I was set! Now I know I keep referring to the booze, but I was on vacation, with nothing to do but take picture's of models, eat, and sleep. Besides that my knee was killing me.

With all that said, Susie, and Scott are still getting ready, because I'm on my way up stairs to the show. I wished I could remember everyone's name, that I met that morning, there are some really cool people running this show. The big guy selling the tickets at the door, "hell" he treated me, as if he'd known me all my life! Once inside, I knew just where I was head'en. To find The Diceman, and all the Creature goodies! Well I found him in the far corner, sitting there with Sue, trying to wake up like the rest of us. Hey Dice, I say nervously, and putting my hand out to greet a new friend. Howdy I'm Buffalo Joe, Hey you made it he says, and then it was right into shop talk after that. The Buffalo Meets The Diceman, sounds like a damn Monster movie to me, this is pretty cool! Unfortunately, Dice had sold most of his stuff the day before. I should have listened, and put my order in before hand. I still picked up a Creech wallplack, and plan on ordering the other later. Looking forward to seeing Dice, and Sue next year.
