One cool thing that made this a really cool year was my trip to the Texas Freethought convention in Dallas. Just a short five hour drive for us in Oklahoma. Good food and great entertainment.
I encourage all freethinkers to try and attend a meeting that is close to them. It does not matter if the its a national event, like the one I attended, or a small local event. Get out and be seen. It does the movement good. Here is a great photo of Sam Singleton with my wife Mary after a great night of laughs.
