4 years ago was my first Mego meet and looking back now I cant believe I gave my brother a hard time about it lol, I guess you can Dub me the Mego Meet Pest now for my September countdown start ups lol I know its gotta drive Steve crazy :) ... But I guess that is all a Testiment and Endorsement to what this Event is Really is... A family Reunion of sorts because thats what it is, I texted John Farley this morning replying to his Pleasantries and Thanks and responded to him... It's like a wedding however may hours it is it just isnt enough time it's a blurr... You turn 1 way then another before you know it your head is spinning then every one is packing up and before you know it your leaving Sunday morning and you haven't even said good bye to everyone.
Every year you put a Face to a name New or Old... I think most of us Social networking now with each other as Friends eases the transition even more... I walked in and felt like a rock star lol Hey Kev or Bronxboykev!!! It gives you this feeling of ease and comfort. So many people to Thank and the fear of leaving someone out is always an issue, so I will do my best to thank everyone that made the Bronx contingent feel like one of the family and extend apologies now as well if we forgot you.

Steve and Brian for getting it all together and making it happen and for Liking the Mego Meet X display piece so much that will be used for as long as it holds out... and then we may just have to make another one :)
Scott (Ax) Pierce a friend from the end of the first meet on... Watching Dominique ALMOST Brainstorming with you is something to see... I cant express how much it means to us and her that you entertain her visions... As always a pleasure.
Roberto and Tom who always leave with a bundle of my money... and if they were different people would leave with a whole lot more of it, the deals are greatly appreciated... Berto has been Dubbed the Willie Wonka of MEGO'S, well I'm adding another moniker to him ENCYCLOPEDIA MEGO... always there for me and I am sure everyone else, to make sure that I have all the details that will ensure I and you are getting the real deal.
John Farley Thank You For making some of the damn finest Customs on the planet... Until Mego meet I had not been a Customs Guy But my first glimps of His Doc Oct I knew one day I would own one... Well I don't have to Drool over his anymore lol... and for the early morning Texts before the sun comes up :) lol You are the man my friend.

Each Meet becomes less and less toy show and more and more family reunion. I'm an only child and my wife's family I'm not particularly fond of, so I basically have almost no support system or family to speak of...except the first weekend in June. I only recently started using facebook so I'll keep up with a bunch of you that way. Kevin is a perfect example of someone blending right in with everyone. It wouldn't seem right not having you there my friend.

Glad to see there, sorry we did not get a chance to chat. With it being so packed this year, I know I missed saying hi some people.

Always a pleasure my friend.

It was a pleasure seeing you again. But the real treat was actually watching how much fun you girls were having. I heard one of them actually say they were going to start saving all their money for next years meet. That is what it is all about!

You and your clan are a shining beacon of light at the Meet, truly a family event when lovely folks like you and yours show up.
