Hey man!  We had such a groovy time at the 60s breakout luncheon.  It was a real gas!  And the dolls were totally far out!  There were two rad centerpieces and one totally heavy souvenir.  Check them out:

Haha!  Awesome.

Haha! Awesome.

Gosh, who didn’t love the sixties?  Oh, and the far out fashion!  Speaking of, Robert gave an incredible presentation, schooling us all on the Fashions of the 60s.  Magnificent!

Then we all got a real special treat.  You know how Robert loves to dance?  I may have mentioned this.  :D  Anyway, apparently,  he got to do the Wah-Wah-Watusi with the Lennon Sisters a while back, and what better occasion to show the video of it?  I mean, the man has got MOVES.  :)  Check it out:

Then the fun stuff began.  We played Dress Up…  Rather, the collectors played dress up, with materials provided by Team Tonner.  Their goal:  to make their specimen… I mean TEAMMATE look like a Go Go Dancer out of totally random supplies, like tin foil for example!  Here’s the clincher:  Dancing included.  They were judged on their dancing, so no dance, no points.  Oh, the hilarity!  This is the stuff that probably doesn’t translate if you’re not actually in the room.  So you should totally come to convention next time and then you can see the hilarity for yourself!!!!  Anyway, feast your eyes, Tonnerados:
