So, ummm, where's the pic of the TPF salute??
Maybe have a look at this new thread Corinna? http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1416623#post1416623

had fun this night, but for some strange reason i cannot post any photos!
Ah! Thanks for that hint, Chris!!!
So, after our coffee we headed on into the chapel, it was quite a posh chapel as they left their books lying around and no-one has stole them yet
There was even a golden bird that hadn't been nicked, so we knew we were in a reasonably safe place
Monty and Chris made their way up the aisle
And we looked in awe at the rather large and shiny organ that was in the ceiling
There was some nice artwork that has since suffered at the hands of photoshop
along with a few dodgy shadows that appeared
Underneath all of this calmness though, it was clear that all was not well -simple instructions were ignored...
the statues looked elsewhere so they wouldn't get the blame
and despite the signs that said no mobile phones, Sandie kept in touch with her friends
Louise took a pew after a rousing rendition of ave maria
and a couple of sinister shadows appeared on the massive organ
It was time to leave, should I take the pencil or not??? oh the temptation!
so out of 13 people at the meet up only 4 have posted photos
Terrible isn't it - there's a typo in your sig as well!
I'll chase up the college two in a couple of weeks - half term at the mo, amd Sandie has some, so I'll get her to post hers - and Montys.
In the meantime, I'll carry on posting
So, we eventually found our way out of the secret garden that is St Johns College, and landed outside of the doorway of the Lamb & Flag where we felt obliged to sample a little of the local hospitality - I failed to take any photos in there as I was thirsty!
After being suitably refreshed, we headed over to the Museum of Natural History - somewhere that Corinna's daughter Sabine visited a couple of times while she was in Oxford.
The main thing to remember is not to step on the grates in there, as thats when the monsters appear - too late!
Next thing you know, all hell broke loose, and I narrowly missed being stepped on by a T-Rex...
On closer inspection, I think he could have done with a pedicure
Crowds of people though it was all part of the show - it was too late for them though
This couple didn't stand a chance as several of the beasts attacked at once
Claire was a gonner
Sandie came close...
...but managed to evade the jaws of death
but then wasn't so lucky once the raptor found her...
Caroline just didnt see it coming...
Luckily, I was still alive and managed to dodge this beast
Chris was trying to work out 'what that button does' = it was too late for him...
Just when I thought it was the end for all of us, a heroine stepped into the breach to take control
With her trusty sidekick they managed to remove the kid from the grate, and quell the invasion of the beasts. After removing the kid, they returned triumphant from their victory
Well done! said the statuesque fellow in the museum
And to celebrate, he did a magic trick with coins
Ferny looked on in awe, he hadn't seen anything like this since Fred the fiddler invited him into his house one afternoon many years ago
Not wanting to lose any more of our number, we left the museum and headed off in search of food.
Excellent narration Tony! Can't wait for the next installment! :thumbup:
You're taking the words out of my mouth, Chris. I thought the VERY same when I first looked through your newest installment, Tony. (And sure enough, Sabine was in there, NEVER stepping on the grates in the floor, of course [whoa! :shock: ], and she took many a good photo in there back then, too!)
the typo stays, its my only true friend
Separate names with a comma.
