Advice for nonbirding spouses

In Smoky Mountain News, Don Hendershot offered some wise words:
I can’t remember how many foot massages I promised. A note to non-birding wives of birders — get everything in writing. A birder “jonesing” has absolutely no recall of any promises or sacred oaths.

And speaking of massages, I'd like to ask that more festival organizers work with local massage therapists to offer neck, shoulder and even foot massages to festival attendees. The birders likely would benefit from the tension release, and the therapists might make a tidy sum.

I know of one event -- Space Coast Birding & Wildlife Festival -- that included a massage booth in the vendor hall. Are there more?
