    Default Ruckus 2019

    Hisano and I spent a bit of time discussing the ruckus this year and have decided that we are taking this year off. We are not going to host a ruckus this summer. The ruckus happens every year the weekend before our anniversary, so we've decided to spend some time traveling over the summer instead of planning the ruckus.

    I'm sorry we are we are already six months out, but we decided to wait until after Hong Kong to be sure this is what we wanted to do this year.

    This also means the next ruckus will have to be extra-epic

    WHEW!!! I was thinking I needed to take this year off, too. Now I won't miss anything!

    Jeremy and Hisano, you have a glorious, happy anniversary, and I'll see you next year. You deserve a year off.

    Completely understandable. You both should take time for yourselves. I've spent enough money this year & really need to replenish my pearl fund.

    Have the most wonderful time traveling and enjoying your time away. You will be able to celebrate and relax so much more without your travel being work-related! I am so appreciative of all your generosity and hospitality over the years. You definitely deserve a real vacation! ENJOY!!!

    Yes, I think we all think it is a good idea to spend some time on yourself and Hisano. You have been overwhelmingly gracious putting together the Ruckus for the last ten years. It is all good. Maybe even you can delegate some of the planning to others on P-G. We would all be up for contributing to the fun. I put myself on the list to help organize.
    Please post pictures of your travels...

    I was busily plotting to attend the Ruckus this year, and yet, I'm also kind of thrilled that it will be next year—which allows for more time to get logistics ironed out and the Pearl Purse filled up more!

    I hope you and Hisano have a wonderful anniversary celebration and get in some deep R&R.

    Reading another post about the plural of Ruckus ("Ruckuses"), I'm thinking it might be "Rucki" (pronounced like Ruck-eye), given that the plural for hippopotamus is hippopotami.

    I am so grateful for every ruckus that I was able to attend. You and Hisano are enormously generous people. I treasure the exquisite pearls that I have able to purchase, but even more so, the wonderful pearl friends that I have made. My life has been so enriched. I never expected that there would necessarily be a ruckus every year, so thank you again for the ones that you hosted.

    The sanest decision yet from our Pearl King and Queen!!! I'm so glad you both decided to take a break. Your generosity in hosting these amazing Ruckuses will, and has, gone down in history. Thank you for the many beautiful memories and experiences!
