. When it was over I managed to blag on of the small posters from the display. I could only see about 5 or 6 of these in all. My wife also blagged one of the cardboard cut outs used on top of the book displays.
You don't have to blag about it. :p

(I have never heard the slang term "blag" before today!)

Seriously though, very happy for you and thanks for sharing your photos!

Ha ha Fushingfeet ..In Ireland to 'blang' kind of means a lot of things..in these instances it means to talk someone into giving something they dont really want to...(maybe for fear of repercussions from one's superiors!!!!)...in all fairness though, I thought I did well with the poster until my wife blagged the card board cut out ..(which we brought to the Eiffel Tower!!) ...We had a ball in Paris....should have booked a flight to Germany while they were cheap...who knows what we would have come away with :)..I think I have a small video clip of Ms Mod getting out of the car... I also remember her and a couple of others coming out to see how many fans were still queuing a couple of times and taking some photos...Im in one of them on the official Facebook page waving like a loon...anyway fantastic memories of a great day....some people say 'never meet your hero's'...I say feck that live for your dreams. (BTW Feck is also an Irish slang but in no way derogatory :)..
then again maybe I just invented a new word..Feel free Stephen to use the word 'blang' in your next story..(or feck)....now that would be cool
Cheers

Yesterday was nice, but it's mostly been raining. Got caught in a couple of showers this afternoon as I was wandering around for about 3 hours trying to find my way back to the hotel. Directionally challenged should be my middle name! :) I'm sure that I was close several times but kept getting turned around even with the GPS map on my phone. Was nearly at the point of breaking down when a very nice doorman gave me directions that finally led me back to the right street. I was afraid it was going to get dark before I got back and then I'd really be in trouble.
Marsha, this would never have happened to you if you had brought me along- my sense of direction is spot on! :love: Oh, if you have a hankerin' for a cheese omelet here's how you say it in French- Omelette de fromage. And ask for a forchette to eat it with!! Am so-o jealous of you right now.

Nope, not a dude :) And not a new member either ! I just haven't been back since our friend JohnDalgish sadly left us. Missed him too much, and it was not quite the same after ...
...I give...you all win!!!!....to paraphrase Honest Abe...woulda been better for me to remain silent and be thought a fool-then type up and remove all doubt...
