haha, no problem. I need to add a paragraph or two describing the event. I forgot to mention how graceful dean was. He was there signing for probably 10 hours at least I'm sure. When I got up there it had been about 8 or 9 hours, and I found out he hadn't taken a lunch break all day. He said he'd stay until everyone got their books signed. When I got up to him I asked if this long day broke any records for signings and he said he'd done a longer one before. He was very gracious and didn't seem at all bothered or upset that he was signing all day without lunch.
I also got to see the new wing of CCI that the Koontz's donated money to build. It's very nice. There is a large family room where the disabled and their families can relax and adjust to their new assistance dogs. They actually live on the location for a few weeks to learn all the commands, etc. Only the cream of the crop of the assistance dogs graduate the program, and the ones that don't all get homes, they have a 5 year waiting list to adopt the dogs that don't make it to graduation!
I thought it was a great event, and for a good cause.
