I had a meeting scheduled with the Wizard in Toronto and he blew me off so he could watch the final episode of the first season of Survivor. It was then that I realized I will really like this guy. He was nice enough to meet me for breakfast the next day. He also gave me a manuscript for his upcoming "102" book. We have done a little business together in the last fifteen years, but the last time I saw him he had $50,000 stolen from him at Mandalay Bay.

Never met the guy. I don't think he knows I'm alive.

I met the Wiz and the Wizlet when they joined me and my boy for a jaunt to the top of Red Cap. I think it was a good day because I didn't die. Other than that, although we both live in Vegas, we haven't gotten together. My job may have a little to do with that. To that end, Mike, we need to get together for lunch sometime! ;-)

This is still funny after 2 or 3 times.
I have never met you but we all certainly know you're alive.
A live one, that is.

April 28, 2010 at an Atlanta Bread Company out on West Charleston Blvd., back when we were calling such a get-together a Wizard of Vegas "coffee". My wife and I were the only ones joining him, and he was on his way to a tennis session. There is a thread and photo of that meeting somewhere on this forum.

Second time was December 15, 2010, when he picked up the tab for dinner at Red Rock. He had just come from his daughter's band performance, and my wife and I followed dinner with a visit to the Grand Opening of the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas.

Since then, we have only seen each other for activities associated with WoVCon and WoVCon][.
