    I'm going to make my reservations now. I'm going to leave Sunday on the noon train, so whatever goes on that day, looks like I'm out of it.

    Mark, can you tell us when and where we'll meet up on Friday for the drive to Brielle's? I'll be staying in Framingham Thursday night, and need to know which commuter train I have to catch and which stop I should get off at in order to connect with you fine people.

    I am so excited about our get-together. I do hope everyone will be able to visit chez-nous for a nice meal on Friday. I will keep it informal (buffet style) so we will have more time for smellies.
    We are almost finished with the house, after 8 months its about time, well finished for the moment. So I hope everyone will enjoy my 1780 colonial.
    Please feel free to let me know of any dietary restrictions so I can work with them. i am going to be doing a few vegetarian dishes, for my darling ComDiva, so do not hesitate to let me know. On that note, I hope everyone enjoys homemade lasagna, meat free, lots of cheese and more cheese.
    And, mousse au chocolat.
    Oh, I am just tickled...

    For all UK-based Basenoters and anyone who can make it to London in July, please save the dates between 14th and 18th of July if you're interested in a fun perfume event. You get to pick the day that best suits you out of those.



    ALSO - all of you with amazing perfume collections, some cool stories to tell about your perfume passion, please see here and I'll explain more in a PM: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/254452-I-want-you!

    Folks, this is important to know to avoid disappointment:

    Colonial Drugs, that haven of 1000+ HTF perfumes in Cambridge, does not take credit cards!
    I just checked with them and this is still their policy.
    They take cash and checks.

    Good looking out 30 Roses!

    Nukapai- that sound great- wish I was retired and could do both trips.

    yoo hoo, Mark/SMM ..... legendary cat herder. Will some of our activities require any admission fees separate from our personal purchasing, eating, drinking and transpo costs??

    For that matter, a reminder that Neiman Marcus doesn't take either Visa or Mastercard.

    Good reminders, 30 Roses. I wrote to Colonial Drug yesterday (and included a link to this thread) to ask if they might have at least a loose list of brands they usually have in stock and specifically if they carry i Coloniali Yuzu. This was Cathy's response:

    Great to hear from you. So glad that you like our window! We are working on bringing back the Coloniali line including YUZU. We will keep you on the notification list for it. How many people do you expect for your meeting? Have a great week-end. Cheers! Cathy B, Colonial D

    I wrote back telling her I think we have about 10 confirmed. I also mentioned I knew they carried the Knize line, hoping she'd remember I was inquiring about that "loose list" of brands.

    Who do we know is going for sure? Brielle and her DH, SMM, ComDiva, Chaya, Knit, Ubu, RHM, Leesee, Pomander, me — that's 11. 30R, are you coming??? Whitelace? Queen Cupcake? At one time Nukapai was hoping to make it. I was wondering what happened to Ed Caruthers, too.

    We take family trips to Boston each summer with our teenaged daughter, which include museum visits, shopping (including perfumes), the Boston Common (swan boats etc.) We are overdue for a return trip to the museum of Natural History at Harvard and I would love a repeat visit to the MFA-- looove seeing Dance At Bougival!

    I think while she is young it's better for us to continue taking her on these family type outings. So, no, I'm afraid I won't be there....

    This is like herding cats and I am hopeful that by Friday I will have this all nailed down.

    I've had some unexpected expenses this summer so the money I was going to use for coming to Boston has been eradicated. I may decide to come at the last minute, and if I do, I will try to catch up to the group to at least introduce myself, etc. It is wonderful of Mark to arrange all of this and I hope everyone has a wonderful time.

    Thank you, chaya. I was so looking forward to this, and to meeting you and the others. Maybe next year. . . . But I know you all will have a grand time together, and I cannot wait to hear about everyone's adventures.

    Oh Leesee. I am so sorry you will not be joining us. Just know that if ever you are in the northeast, my home is open to you. Feel free to come and stay awhile anytime. We could do our own sniffing excursion. Hell, we could just go into my wardrobe and have a sniffing excursion spanning the last century.
