Re: A.A.A.S. in Philadelphi., Giganotosaurus, etc....

Just when I thought it was safe to leave the list for a few weeks!

OK, so I was feeling a little off colour that day and couldn't put in my
usual performance.

Damn, there goes our reputations even further!

Hey, that's what it said on the menu but I'm not sure I would want to eat
it if that's what they do with their tucker!

I'ld love to but i've already killed my travel budget for the year. It was
great to put faces to names that I have heard so much about and thanks to
Mary, Tom, Allan and all for making the effort and having fun in Philly.

Cop you all later!
