Consumerism alive & well

So, as we wandered around the Charlotte Convention Center, dodging the scrapbookers, I noticed another gathering was underway. A BOAT SHOW! And what do you know: though we could have paid admission to the show, there was also a large plate-glass window overlooking the showroom, affording a free view to all. So we looked. Many, many boats on display: mostly large and all of them shiny and and beautiful.

Obviously, if we weren't willing to pay admission, we sure weren't in the market for a new boat. But it was amazing to see the people who were.

Quite a day in downtown Charlotte.

Oh, by the way. Katie has arrived safely in Ireland! She called us early this morning.
