    Where have all the Veterans gone(CE2 edition)FOUND!!!

    Oh my,oh my.....although there is another day left I'm home already(curse you work commitments!!)I can't express how great my Essen experience was.

    From finally socialising with many long time vets here,to some great collector panels,to seeing some old(LOL) friends I had a whirlwind 48 hours that was so positive and memorable it's difficult to pick a highlight.

    Those "damn Swedes" are super-party freaks and bloody nice guys...Matthias,Daniel,Johan and Mike....Jaeger-tastic!!!

    Graham,Wolfgang,Kevin,Henrik,Derek,The London boys in the camper van(!) including Gary Smith,Robbie,Davey,Nick,Matt and James all flying the flag for the Make-A-Wish foundation......

    Chris G,Elling,Gus and Pam,Duncan and Tony who as jet lagged as they were,took the time to get involved and be very welcoming to me(even after midnight!!).....

    The German collectors..Markus,Tobi-wan,Lars,Michi....all guys I have bought items off in the past...Finally meeting them in person at the social.....Trading stories about the items we all regretted selling or trading....

    And lastly....my room buddy Andy....who like me spent way too much money on beer and like me at our age should probably know better!!!....but those Swedes(and Derek!!)know how to party....

    kinda bummed that I missed out on the room sale and have to track down them other Star Tots(help!!)but I'm already planning ahead so that next time...I'm there for the duration.(C7??)

    Essen was socially on an entirely different level than my last CE experience.

    If I missed out anybody it's because it was so eventful that it ALL seemed like a highlight!!

    I'm at Dusseldorf Airport at the moment, waiting my flight to Dublin, and then back up to N. Ireland (where we both know it all happens... ?)

    Thorsten....LOL!!!....sorry for not name checking you above!!!

    and as a proud member of the Tri-Madine club I'm glad you got a pop out of our stupid shirts!!

    Lars,Stephane and the other Madine owners at the social on Friday must have been the owners of 90% of the population of the Madines worldwide!!

    good times and great to meet you!!

    That's probably still echoing around the corridors of the Atlantic Hotel.
