I am very happy you all had a good time. I was afraid that it might feel a bit boring, especially after Step’s excellent tour of Hastings, complete with letter search and all. I felt that last years meeting might have set the expectations quite high. I am glad my fears were not confirmed.

I suppose no one of you had suspected the Felsenmeer to be *QUITE* so big, right? I know I posted pictures before, but I felt they could never bring across just how enormous it is. I forget how large it is myself, as you might have noticed.


Tsa, if it is possible for me in any way, I will bring one of our Doggies to the next meeting. If it is on the mainland there are extra options for this. Smile

I am all for the next meeting to be in Scandinavia. Lena? Wink

Side remark:
@ Jazhara: is it possible that you guys overtook me on the highway? Or are there many other green vans like that in the area? Tongue
I just thought it was weird that I had reached the highway before you did…

I doubt that it was us. There’s a lot of these around, partly because it was one of the standard colours the model was offered in, and also because at one pointthe ministry of forestry of Hessen had made a large order of the model in that colour. Later they were sold off as used cars, so they are pretty common.

The waitress in the restaurant was very interesting. It became pretty obvious after a very short time that she didn’t like us. So what se did was stand at my corner at the table and make some soft noise like ‘hmffp,’ and then I had to find out what she meant and obey her. She then looked at the next person, without moving an inch from her taken position, and LOOKED at him/her. If eyes could shout hers would be as loud as Timovieman. I had to poke Luna a few times and tell her what to do because Miss Waitress didn’t say a word. Oh yes, once she said: “Besteck” a few times, which didn’t mean that you should give her the cutlery but that you had to keep it. After dinner she was so fed up with us that she disappeared to the other end of the room and Jazzy or SickBrain had to fetch her to take up our desserts. Pretty amazing.


I am still not sure if she didn’t like us or was just one of the people whose neutral face looks very disdaining. You know, like the grandma of Tutankhamun, Queen Tiye. I think it was her large upper lip. At least her colleague didn’t seem to mind us. As we went outside I told them the food was great, and thanked them for their patience when we stayed long after the restaurant was open.

I know at least one person who always seems very gruff if you are not used to them. The owner of a local Asia store has a pretty grim neutral face, and she usually dons it with customers she doesn’t know. It doesn’t mean she doesn’t like you, only that she reserves her smiles for people she sees regularly. I’ve found that out when I came to her store for the third time. It seems she accepts me as a regular customer now.

I was at the restaurant an hour earlier with Hanne and Mrs. Urhan, and she treated us much better then. So I keep thinking she didn’t like us. But maybe if she reads this she can answer herself? Wink

We managed to speak three languages at the same time during an evening and a day at high volume, so your Georgian accent will be no problem for us Smile

Don’t be silly, it was an excellent weekend. (Though you should definitely have warned us about how big Felsenmeer really was Cry That’s the closest I can get to a sweating smiley). The only thing that was missing was vehicles to push tsa under. I still think he would have enjoyed the ride down the steep hill next to the dragon museum if you’d just let me start him off on it. Naughty

I am awesome though.  Grin

We don’t live that far apart. Maybe one day we could meet somewhere in the middle. Have a drink and a look around and maybe dinner, and then go back home.

Step 1 : Wheel chair to top
Step 2 : Ensure all brakes are off
Step 3 : Let go

Easy, or is that not what you had in mind?  Wink

That would be very cool Bullsie! Maybe you can get all of us to send you a message in our different languages.

Step is a terrible man who wants me dead. It looks like we’re joking but we are really arch enemies.

Yes, our conversations typically go like this.

  tsa (stroking a rabbit in a sinister way) - “So Mr Urhan, I’ve been expecting you.”
  stepurhan (looking dashing and sipping a Martini, before suddenly spitting it out as he remembers he doesn’t like Martini) - “You won’t get away with this tsa!”
  tsa - “Oh I think I will Mr Urhan” (presses switch that drops me into his cage full of attack budgies)

The trouble is, both of us have such keen adventure gaming minds, we are always able to come up with ways of thwarting each other. Usually involving improvisations based around bits of string, cat hair and rubber ducks.

Truly he is a worthy adversary.  Laughing

Indeed. The world is too small for the two of us. Just wait until my new toys are delivered Mr. Urhan! Sharks with freaking lasers attached to their heads!

Well, we could walk the streets of Norrköping, the town where the Carol Reed games take place. It’s quite a nice town only 40 minutes from my town Nyköping. And it’s really easy to get to Nyköping since we have the airport Stockholm/Skavsta here.  The one Ryan air uses.
(Flights from Standstead/London, Einhoven/N.L, Bergamo/Milan, Edingburgh/Scotland, Brussles/Belgium, Hamburg, Bremen, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt/Germany and even some more during summer.
The questions is rather how many are prepared to go ‘all the way’ to Sweden?

I would! And I think I would be able to convince Uptimist to come as well.
