That is COOL. Making memories and sharing them, too. Thanks for that.

I love it! I wish I could have joined this motley crew. I received a gift from a special LJ in the mail today. I’ll tell you who after I have a chance to properly thank him. Suffice it to say that it’s wonderful to make these friends. Here my gift, a golden lighter, sits atop a strop that was my fathers.

I’m checking the law books. There has to be an international law against that much fun in one evening. lol

It is great seeing the huge smiles on your faces. Everything in the world is right again.

Also good to know you get back home safely after the safari.

For the record, I’d just like to say that it was all Mad’s idea to meet in such a place as this. I was but a stranger in a foreign land being led astray by the locals. :o)

Thanks for a great evening guys.

Hi Guys, thank you for all the wonderful comments, yes it was a night to remember, it will sure keep me smiling for a while. I am happy that the pictures are unsharp mobile pictures, after all it makes it a little sureal…
Andy was almost impossible to drag down the street and so was Flemmming, I’m the sinner (at least Andy can tell that to his wife now).
Big smile,

Dennis – Tuesday or Wednesday nights are the only nights I have for socializing each week, so if you can find the time, it would be great to meet you before the end of my project in wonderful Denmark.

Al, a pipe lighter, that is cool, I use to have one where it could pop up a stick so you could use it as a match, but it was on gasoline so it destry the good taste of tobacco. Nice stuff on that shelf.

Yes Dennis it would be fine to make another night count me in.

PurpLev, yes it was a night, next time I would be really happy to see you, but I guess to go to Copenhagen for a night is not on a option… So I’ll send you a thought next time instead. Thank you.
Best thoughts,
Mads

doordude – It was made of metal. I think it was a sculpture of animals and women joining a conga line but I might be wrong. The woman at the front had obviously had too much to drink though :-)

Let’s all do the conga,
