Conventions are not a new thing in my life but this was my first Netroots Nation. I missed Yearly Kos in Las Vegas and in Chicago but after the fabulous time I had this past week, I will try never to miss another one. Thursday after registering I immediately started running into local activists from Austin.

Then I started meeting all the great bloggers from around the nation. Many I have known on line for years and many were new to me but all made the experience even better.

I just love the Bikes Not Bombs hat
The gang who worked so hard on the Netroots for the Troops I was happy to meet the people I had entertained in the dairies with Happy Dances.
People would never guess how much I hate having my picture taken as I ran around the convention center and the Hilton having my picture taken with every candidate and elected official I could find. LOL
There are many more pictures I will be posting later. I will close with 3 that had me walking on cloud 9!!!
Gavin Newsom Mayor of San Francisco
Speaker Nancy Pelosi
I regret I did not take more pictures of bloggers or of the parties but look for more pictures soon from this exciting event!!!
