Vancouver - pictures

Here is a start. The Sylvia bar with a few patrons.

Left to right:
Aussie, MM, MC, Sandra, Peter, Wolvie

Unfortunately the 2 pics I had the waitress take at lunch did not turn out well due to very bright light from outside. I?ll have a friend who is a Photoshop guru work on them. As for the rest (you know?the ones showing scandalous, depraved, inappropriate and thoroughly shocking behaviour) I will need iron clad legal releases before posting.

Cheers,

Peter

MM and Wolvie at the table facing the water on Granville Island. There are 3 missing (well 2 as I took the pic). We had been at the market for about an hour and for some reason, all of us decided to buy a bit of food. Went outside and ate it. Weather was great, wonderful view of the water and the city. BTW, Granville Island is situated beneath one of the bridges that lead to downtown Vancouver. It used to be an industrial site and is now home to a fabulous urban market. It also is the home to a theatre, many galleries, artists workshops, bookstores and on and on.

After this "dainty" lunch we ended up meeting Glenys at the pub attached to The Bridges restaurant located beside the market. And I will leave the story to be continued by another?..

Photos: I have five goodies. The others look like we are either blotto, 159 years old, in a police lineup or all of the above.
So, now, how do I post the 5 without a scanner, and should I get releases from you all?

If you don't have a scanner I don't suppose you have that machine they use at Playboy to "improve on Mother Nature"?

Ok be gentle with me. I've never done this before.

This is the Chancellor of the Exchequer either working out the menu or the bill.
I won't post any more until someone says that it worked.

It worked. But, I don't have any idea who that is.

Sandra.

Are these too little. I've just been busting my guts out trying to reduce them from drive-in screen size.

That's all for now. Have one more of Wolvie but have to discuss with her first.

DD says either you need new glasses or the light is different in Canada.

OMG, Michaela, don't tell me that unless I write something a third as good as Stone Angel! (Fat, bloody chance! Though now that you mention it, M. Laurence was also a heavy smoker -- one more reason not to give up the evil weed!)

Cam, you can send them to me as well. Just tell me what you want done. I'll 'fix' them, and send them back to you so you can post them yourself.

Anything that you want fixed should be in as large a size as you have. I'll send them back fixed, and in a more presentable size.

Okay, Cam, where are YOU??? And where is Messy Chef??? And where is Glenys???

I have one of Cam but she'd kill me if I posted it.

Messy Chef and Tracey came to the lunch where the waitress took pictures with bright light in the background and didn't come out. That is, the photos didn't come out. The waitress emerged unscathed.

Glenys is running around trying to find a plastic surgeon last we heard.

Oh Cam - like you need plastic surgery!

I've only been able to view one pic - the one Aussie
posted of the Kaparoo. I gather I'm missing a lot.

Sure was great meeting everyone, a big thank-you to Glenys for planning this.

Thanks as well to Glenys and Cam14 who so kindly picked me up and returned me to YVR airport.

Peter - did your friend the guru have any success trying to lighten our silhouettes in the restaurant photos?

Tracey - hi - next time we have to get a round table so we get a chance to talk.
Either that or play musical chairs between courses. That way we get to know more CTers.

You have to come the night before and spend time at the hotel. That's how we get to know each other.
