  2. I am sure I have seen Half of these people on posters out side the police station!

    4th in from the right most definitely and 4th from the left.

    Good that the Young Padwan and Tamsin added some Glamour or one might expect this lot to be planning a post office blag!

    1. And how do you that me and the Padawan aren't the ringleaders of the post office blag plot? ;)

    2. Oh I believe you could well be the ringleader! Postie your henchmen and doer of nasty things and Ray as the muscle. Mr A could easily be the fence... or forger!

      To say more might in some way lead to questions being asked!

    3. I'll take forger! Tamsin is definitely up to something though. :)

  8. Nice to see everyone this year, even if we were a smaller, more select group. :)

    1. Indeed, I don't want too, but I might change the time next year, so it doesn't clash with the Lead Painters meet up, even though we were there first! ;0)

  9. Hope I'll be there one day...

    1. Some on Phil, 2018's the year for you?

  10. Excellent - the group pic is particularly good - quality is better than past years, but the fall-off in numbers is worrying. You don't suppose this could be a modern equivalent of the old Gettysburg Annual Reunion?

    1. Battle-weary survivors of Pickett's queueing system?
      I happened to pass by this gathering, but I'm not worthy (and not yet a blogger). Nice to put faces to blogs, though - thanks everyone.

    2. You should have said hello David?
      MSFoy - People have been posting recently about the decline in blogging, you may have something there???

  13. Nice to see everyone meeting up.

  14. That is a motley crew, Ray! Did your group discuss the root cause of the perceived drop off of blogging?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Great pictures. Glad I had had my hair cut this year!

    ReplyDelete
  16. How am I going to maintain my "man of mystery" facade if people keep not only taking pictures of me, but also identifying me? I blame Michael...
    A great selection of photos, Ray, really sets the scene for thos who weren't able to attend this year. Although if I'd known I was going to be snapped, I might have chosen something that didn't make me look I was wearing longjohns...
