    Re: RB's Harry Potter Release Adventure (with a few pics)

    Our Borders was great, or it was from where I was standing. My receipt shows the time of purchase at 0:03 am. Not too shabby!

    Re: RB's Harry Potter Release Adventure (with a few pics)

    The Borders I went to was as organized as they could be with so many people. Probably more than 1200, as they were doing groups of 150, and they were working on the 8th wristband color when I got there.

    Luckily I was in the Blue (third) group about halfway back, so probably about 400th, overall. I didn't get my book until 1 a.m., but I was happy to have time to shop for CDs and get a latte to drink in line before the Blues lined up.

    Barry, I can't believe you ran into another MiceChatter, just randomly! How cool!

    Then there's me. I walked to the register at Walmart with three packages of boxers, a gallon of milk, two HP books and NO ONE in line at 8:00 am yesterday.
    No, LDF...I went straight to her workplace, where a co-worker had already gotten a copy...my wife's one and only copy came from...yours truly.

    By the way, nice visual with the books, milk and boxer shorts.

    Guess you've had one fun weekend.

    Sad to say...yes indeed. Being a kid of the 60's in SoCal, I was raised on drive-ins, and after I moved to the Ventura area in 1983 I went to the old 101 several times.

    Check this out...

    Great website, by the way which chronicles the history of all Southern California drive-ins.
