      Mounir and I are very much looking forward to joining you all again this year.
      Thank you to Jeremy and Hisano for their gracious invitation.
      Can't wait!
      My favorite part is seeing the creations everyone wears, and hearing the stories behind them!

          Hisano and I are definitely looking forward to it! We don't have a pool this year, unfortunately, but the location is fantastic!

            I went to The Ruckus last year, and enjoyed it so much ... highlights being the beatific divan on which I reposed by open french doors to one of the balconies, the informational presentations, seeing so many pearls of high repute, my first crush on Sea of Cortez pearls, my first boggling & bedazzling visit to Pearl Paradise, and not least meeting new pearl friends & putting faces to P-G screen names.

            I would like to go again but this year we are building a house. I thought we would be moving in soon, and that was after listening to all the people who said it takes longer than you think and costs more than you think. But now it seems that Ruckus is likely to be at a stage when, if I am not here, I may end up with home details that I will live with most probably for the rest of my life. (Really? You put the light switches right there? The furnace vents? If that toilet was just 1' to the left this whole bathroom would be more comfortable.... ...like that.

            So this year I am taking the long view, prioritizing, and regretfully sending "regrets".

            Have a great time!

              Elizabeth, I hear you on building a home...we did a major remodel about 10 years ago, and it was a 2.5 year process start to finish. I have a list of do-overs for the next time (what was I thinking putting in a jetted tub that NO ONE uses...takes up so much space)...I should have done a separate water closet for the toilet in the master bath...or better, two separate baths!! One for me, one for DH. But once it's done, you will love it.

                  We are in!! Looks like we are on an every other roll for seeing everyone. Last time was the wedding - excited for the Ruckus. Will get back to you on the origin of the word.

                    OK - here's the link to the history of the first ruckus, thrown out as a semi-joke by Mikey, not knowing my social director tendencies and the many hussies lurking on PG. It looks like GemGeek broke out the word "ruckus" and from there it went viral. When Jeremy came on board (almost immediately) it really became a reality. I'm imagining it too PP weeks to recover from the amount of ruckusing that ensued.

                        That is a magnificent venue. Some day, the stars will align so I can have the time and the money for Ruckus.

                              So fun to re-read...I have a big smile on my face ...brings back great memories!

                              I still kind of like "ik-pa-gick", though.
