That’s what my wife said to me after we got home late Wednesday night after the convention had ended. And she was right. This was a totally different convention experience for each of us, but it was, at heart, exactly the same.
Two things happened last year that went on to shape the experiences of this year. One thing was my kids discovering the Dragon Con Puppetry Track thanks to my wife’s lifelong devotion to all things Fraggle Rock and Henson. Dragon Con had two of the original Fraggles there last year, and my wife took the kids, who had been growing up on her Fraggle Rock DVDs, to see them. They then stayed on for a few panels and shows, a few of which my son and daughter became a part of.
