Many years ago I remember nipping into L'Homme on Bridge Street (my shirtmaker relocated from the gaff and I forgot Rolling Eyes ). The proprietor the late Richard Creme (somewhat affectionately known as 'Lurch' due to his 7ft stature) informed me that he sold 'Beyond fashion' as he tried to put me into a Thierry Mugler electric blue jacket what A nice chap who dressed the stars but it was beyond my reach in terms of where I saw my style Embarassed

Bridge is open. Only 2 weeks behind schedule Rolling Eyes

You've just reminded me I need to post up Octs meet details. I will once I get off the phone to BT, potentially the worst customer service since that dodgy bloke flogging Porsche's in Scotland. It's only the 5th time today I've tried Splat

Thanks to Alex and Jonttt for suggesting I put a warranty call in for my car on the paint surrounding the badge on the bonnet. I thought I had a snowball's chance in hell, but he had a good look at it and has sent it over to Germany for approval. Not a done deal but it's already moved on further than I ever thought.
So thanks Alex and Jon, I owe you a beer next month Thumb Thumb

Hand I beg your pardon!!!!

It was me on the car park telling you to do that! It was only later when we were discussing it over lunch, Jon confirmed you'd be able to do it.

Clearly a case of mistaken identity with Alex more deserving of the beer 🍻 Grin

Alex, my most humble apologies. I'd happily buy both of you a beer regardless of the warranty issue. In fact I could say it of all those who turn up but feel that I'd be committing myself to a footballers bar tab at the end of the arvo Surprised

It wasn't the beer mate (honestly), it was just down to recognition.

Which reminds me, I spoke to my boy this morning about our xmas PU. His response - 1000% on it!

He works in the city (in the enjoying yourself marketing trade) and I was thinking of seeing what he can come up with for us having a grand day (slash night) out on the city for our get-together. What's the plan......or is it to be our hot topic at the next meet?

Hot topic for the day because as far as I've got wit it is
1. Mid December Sat date
2. Early arvo kick off
3. Book dinner at a restaurant
4. Manchester as the location

That's about as much thought I've put into it.

Probably in Austria at the Xmas markets (thankfully Grin) as this could get really messy puh

AGM - I like the sound of that. That will help when booking a venue for dinner rather than Xmas drinks Thumb
Perhaps with the new name it might drag up the big wigs of 911uk.com to join us Question
