OK Why-be, now I don't feel bad about still calling you Why-be on Saturday, when you are pronounced Vee-buh. Yes, Willy's looking amazing as usual.

Pete, we work in the same place? Blimey, which one are you, then? I don't ride the back of motorbikes anymore, although I hang off the back of an engine-less bike quite often.

As everyone is sticking their fizzog in this thread, I am posting this one, taken by Andrea (thank you Andrea!) in the Grill. I look as happy as I felt that day, wahay. Lizzie's sitting next to me, and it's Eric's brother John on guitar (turn around and face the camera, John). At least I'm getting this one in before the gormless ones I have seen show up.

Hi Diane, the photo was actually taken by Marco. Most of my photos were taken by him, I only made a very few pics that day.
You see grecian man, I probably would have taken the front part of you but Marco took of course the front part of those beautiful women , Diane and Lizzie ;-)

Anyway one can see that it was a happy situation for all , Diane is just lowming for happyness :D

I have sent a lot of pics to Jarkko also to put them in the files when he is back.

Wybe - it's totally, totally brilliant. I missed most of the action - I was hiding at the back of the cafe in total disbelief (and I didn't have anyone to prop me up!!). Is there any chance of having the unedited version? See Diane - it pays to have Wybe around with his camcorder. It's just so good to see what a brilliant time we all had!

The walk on Sunday was also great fun - meandering through the streets of London - all action captured by Wybe - including the episode at Covent Garden!!

How the hell did you manage to avoid being in it, Padma!? Brilliant, Wijbe! Thanks loads. Brings it all back. You've caught a lot of 'moments'.

Looks suspiciously like Helen switched the glass.

Well, the glass was the circumference I had in mind with that heavy-glassed bottom, just taller. Very nice. Paula ~ you're all over the place :D . I'm so glad :D 8) :D .

Is it possible to get a copy of the words to LIzzie's poem posted here somewhere? What I could hear of it, I really liked. Would like to be able to read it in full.

Ohhhh... Helen and Sheila ~ I'm so glad you two were able to be there and meet Leonard :D . Well worth the trip, wasn't it :) ? And I see Willy holding up Andrea. This is such great footage! Wijbe... are you taking orders and from non-attenders, too ;-) ?

Hi Wijbe ~

What's the chances of your posting this great video, all the way to the top, in the News section here? A video of Leonard's appearing at the Green Note to meet with fans isn't just News... it's HUGE News!!! It would be a shame for people who come here and focus on just the News section to miss out on this precious video.

Hello Wijbe,

thank you so much for sharing this gem!

Although I have not been able to attend the meeting nor the concert, I'm still in a state of disbelief and being stunned from all the impressions that have been posted here.

Thanks again to all of you.

Wow. Now I wish we had a video or a photo of when Leonard arrived at the Green Note, and Heather was standing outside. Heather said he got out of the taxi and walked straight into her arms; the first time she'd ever met him. Perfect.
Paula ~ you're all over the place
Oh, I don't know, Lizzy, I think Paula managed to hold it together pretty well. Considering.

Thanks to Marco, then, dear Andrea, for taking the pic I liked. (Somewhere I have a pic I like with Heather and 'the front of John'; see if I can find it later.)

Padma, as you mentioned above you were a great London tour guide on the Sunday. Unfortunately I had to leave everyone early to get my train, but I know y'all had a good time (again).

Will we ever get over this :shock: ?

Paula ~ you're all over the place

There we go with another colloquial difference.

Paula ~ You look splendid. I'm glad to see you in so many frames of the video.

Heather's visual memory... and ours now that we know it... is worth more than a million words. What are the chances ;-) ? Willy and Heather ~ you each have a million-to-one memory.


Love,
Lizzie
