    I just wanted to say that I think it is amazing how everyone here pulled together and got this done- I am sure if Schlitzie could thank you- he would! How wonderful that you all are able to go! This board, everyone here-----I am just glad to "know" all of you!

    Hello, BooMom! Sorry you won't be joining us. As of this minute there are no plans afoot for a possible webcast, but everything has not been finalized as yet and won't be, at least not until we get closer to February 20. All I can say is, "stay tuned" for up to the minute reportage.

    Thank You for your interest.

I am more than happy to contribute money to the event in my absence.
    Hi ad nauseum, The Farmer's Daughter hotel across the street from Dupars on Fairfax Avenue where we're meeting is $204.00 per night for a single and still booking (as of two days ago). You'd be close and staying at a place where some of the biggest stars and producers have rolled around! Their phone # is (323) 937-3930 in case you want to give it a shot. I'd hate to see you miss this incredible day!

    It's so sad that this is not gettin any more attention than it is from this forum...There was SO MUCH excitement about it once upon a time...What happened to the spirit of this bunch...I would give my LEFT EYE TOOTH to be there...This is what should be talked about this week...Instead this thread and any others are being buried under other threads...I am so saddened by this...

    Many of us attending have been getting fired-up and working to get the word out about Schlitze and his day.

    http://www.sideshowworld.com/Schlitzie-Day-2-20-09.html

    You might not see the story there using Firefox, but it comes thru clear using IE. I emailed John at Sideshow World to see if that could be taken care of.

    Some of us will be wearing these on February 20th:

    Three days until Schlitzie’s Day!
    Been raining here most of the weekend but the weather folks say today is the last of it until Sunday at the earliest. Temperature will be slightly on the cool side so bring a sweater or something.

    Hollywood Blvd, in front of the Kodak Theater and the Chinese Theater, is now closed in preparation for the Oscars on Sunday – From Highland to La Brea
    If anybody has any questions or needs additional information don’t hesitate to PM me or post it here.
    I don’t, but does anybody have a laptop they can bring?
    Also, do we go to Philippe’s before or after MacArthur Park…Or just wing it on Friday?
    I’m looking forward to meeting ya’ll Friday morning at DuPars / Farmers Market!

    One of Us
    It’ll be a good day!

    Starting the morning with breakfast at DuPar's, it seems to me we should base the Philippe's stop on how hungry everyone is

    If the stops are already scheduled, that's OK too.

    Not to mention we have a visit to Pink's planned.

    Senor Muerto! LOVE the Star for Shlitze. If ONLY!

    Somebody checked with the Hollywood Chamber Of Commerce not more than a month ago, and they now want $33,000.00 for a star (yes, that's right: THIRTY THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS. Ahem, and EXCUUUUUUUUSE moi.) In Hollywood's Golden Years they GAVE the Walk Of Fame Stars to movie stars! Alas, tempus fugit, (and more than that, time flies!)

    Can't wait to see y'all Friday AM. This will be a day to remember, for sure! All Shlitze's environs, plus Dupars, Philippe's, and Pinks! Don't pinch me - I don't wanna wake up!

    - Verne

    Please someone give an extra smile for me tomorrow. I tried to get the day off to no avail and in this economy I can't risk losing my job as they do not understand at all the magnitude of what is going to happen tomorrow! I will be there in spirit! I am so happy and proud that all of us came together to remember such a beautiful person. Could someone possibly take video and post it to youtube ? I hate that I am going to miss this.

    Despite having been up almost 24 hrs without sleep, before having to fight a winter storm with sleet / ice / snow so I could spend 8 hours traveling across country so I can experience jet lag, I can not sleep because I am so excited about today! I cannot wait to meet everyone!

    This experience has really made an impact on my life. I can not believe how this small little man has brought out the good in so many people and brought so many together from all walks of life. This was truly a global effort, and I am fortunate to have been part of it.

    I can not wait to see his stone, and lay a simple bouquet of flowers on his grave and say a small prayer of peace. This experience goes to show me that miracles DO happen, they just take time. Who would have thought that after all these years a little poor, handicapped man would be remembered in such a big way?

    Enjoy your day Schlitze. Today we are all "One of us".
