Now folks, don't be too hard on Phil H. He simply heard that, in light of the present convention, the Hilton bar was adopting the White Star Lines rules of etiquette regarding who got served - women and children first!

Given how slowly the drinks were coming, any tactic - however drastic - was justified! But there were always so many interesting people milling around the bar also trying to purchase drinks that one never lacked a good conversational partner.

Eric, I have frantically searched through my shots to find some sort of counter-blackmail material...and came up with nary a one. I know you were present for most of the shennanigans - how did you manage to stay out of camera shot? I could always cut and paste your head onto Molony's body, but would people buy the idea of you banging pint glasses on your head?
 
Inger. I would buy it!!! Need something to take to the next QM get together.

Slow drinks eh? Well, I will bring my collection of Gaelic Storm and threaten to reinact the 3rd class dance scene from Titanic. :) Give me a "Shirley Temple" or two, and I may do it anyhow!

Hello, Inger....

"Eric, I have frantically searched through my shots to find some sort of counter-blackmail material...and came up with nary a one."

Which is exactly why I felt so secure in my attempt to blackmail you!

"I know you were present for most of the shennanigans...."

Present for them? My dear, I *instigated* most of them!

"...how did you manage to stay out of camera shot?"

It's a talent acquired over many years....

"I could always cut and paste your head onto Molony's body, but would people buy the idea of you banging pint glasses on your head?"

I think that on this board people would believe almost anything....

Hi, Colleen. You wrote: "I will bring my collection of Gaelic Storm and threaten to reinact the 3rd class dance scene from Titanic."

Wait 'til you see the pics of Inger and Christine Geyer taken late one night after most everyone else had gone to bed....

Geoff I have appointed you as my heir but remembering that Eric has taken some VERY
V-E-R-Y (!!!) embarrassing photos too I think you have to negotiate with him *blushing*. I'm afraid that in spite of the 3 am bar-pics those who are awkward in the most extreme are yet to come. Hmpf... *blush* Colleen we DID reinact the Gaelic Storm 3rd class dance scene some time after the singing session. And I think the flashlights I remember were not only in my brain. Uh Oh Inger... we need to burn our fingerprints before we come back next year...

Hello all of you lovely people!

I tend to forget this thread now as the Convention finished over two weeks ago............Grief where have those two weeks gone for crinking out loud!

I will be back sooner or later but I thought I would just give you all an update and report the latest news from the comfort of my home surroundings.

It has been so stressful, some days I didn't know whether I was coming or going. Nevertheless the good news was received from Southampton General Hospital this evening, as they have now confirmed that my dear beloved Dad is finally been released and will arrive home sometime tomorrow afternoon.

This is indeed welcoming and joyful news hot of the press.

Once again, I would like to thank everybody who has given me and my family so much support during these difficult weeks, and shown what true friendship is all about.

Take care and best wishes.

Andrew W.

Take care
Christine
