2019 August - Christian T.

 

I guess your expecting some words of wisdom from me today.

Guess again :)

Sadly (For me) I got a dose of the flu the day before the meet and decided it would be best if I didn't spread it around.

So I have very little to say this time.

Yes I can hear the cheering in the distance.

I can only look at the pics and make wild speculations as to what may have happened.

 

Obviously there was various foods, drinks, nibbles to be consumed.

A few people seemed transfixed by Andrews gourmet description of his bit of cheese cake.

Seems they decided to retire to the lounge room at some point.

And maybe something to do with music perhaps ?

At any rate I hope you all had a really miserable time.

Brain the size of a planet and you want me to park cars... (Butchered reference to HHGTTG)

Actually no I hope you all had a great time.

And don't forget a Huge thanks to this months hosts Christian and his charming Wife (Sorry, I can't remember your name)

P.S. Thank you to Christian for the pics below.
