Hurrah for Jolly Ups!

Pete - have you lost half your body weight or something?


I fucking wish! :lol:

That is a particularly flattering photo of me - and to catch me really laughing...now that is rare...

That's exactly what I was laughing at, Kath! :lol: I suggested us having a photo, John said "You want a selfie? Okay..." and then stuck his fucking tongue out!! It just made me giggle "Why do you always do that?! " :lol:

:oops: about the eyes....

A good night out - plenty of good conversation, as well as a hopeless quiz set by some idiot with bad handwriting. Sorry to hear about G's problems late that evening.

Anyway, some quiz photos:

Thanks for the photo of the back of my head. I'll have 2 10x8s please.

It was good to see everyone. Well done to those who came all the way from the continent. Where was everyone else?
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.

Good show!

Shame about Raph's trouble with the authorities. I hope he got the price of his Eurostar ticket back.

Felix and the lady Neige as surprise guests! Even though their plane was delayed by a couple of hours.

And what about those 50 pub crawlers downstairs who all promised to join BCB sometime this week :D

And Pete the Pick. Good to see you again, my old friend.

Maybe it's a sign of me getting older, but I'm sure jolly-ups are getting shorter...

Anyway, was good to (briefly) catch up with everyone - will hopefully be there for longer next time. And in case you're wondering what the horrendous affront to your lugholes was contained on the disc you left on the train/used to prop up that wonky table/fed to the dog was :

Prog Goons Beware! : Heilan Coo Presents Some Young Persons' Popular Beat Combos...

1. The Spook School : Can You Ever Trust A Man Who Thinks Matt Damon's Really Cool?
2. Adam Stafford : Vanishing Tanks
3. Lidh : Quite At Ease
4. Plastic Animals : Pizarnik
5. Eagleowl : Eagleowl vs Woodpigeon
6. Rick Redbeard : Any Way I Can
7. Randolph's Leap : Psychic
8. Rozi Plain : See My Boat
9. Conquering Animal Sound : I'll Be Your Mirror
10. Meursault : Dull Spark

Nonsense. There's a couple of lower-key tracks there, but the whole lot "downbeat"? I'd rather a Withered Hand party than one of your hipsterish Nils Frahm plinky-plonky soirees... ;)

Tapes? Pfft. Get with it, granddad.

And for the first time at a jolly-up, my beloved partner Lady Neigemont in the background.
She shot a few pictures too, which will be uploaded shortly.

Needless to say, we had a great time... and the next couple of days in London with glorious sunshine were wonderful too.

And I must give Lady Neigemont thanks for her gift - a really lovely (and delicious) present. Glad that both of you enjoyed your time in London!

Is the quiz posted somewhere?
