I'll let JB speak for himself (if he is so inclined) but I'd say the odds of an appearance this early are somewhat less than that of a snowball in a place a ways south of ground level. Likewise for myself on this occassion on account of a big event for me in the evening of that Sunday. But don't let any of that effect anyones' willingness to show up at the Rose Bowl ride; having attended last month I can say without reservation that these rides are more fun than a pants full of ferrets! (Don't ask me how I know that.)

Give my regards to the girls behind the counter at Bean Town; and remember if you order a blueberry muffin it may show up as cranberry instead. Wish I could join you guys and gals for this one; maybe next time.
