Spotted in London


Recommended Posts

I was invited as a guest of The Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths to their Michaelmas Court and Awards Luncheon and took Owen as my guest.

Neither of us had been to this do before and did not know what to expect. It turned out to be a fine gathering that started in the pub and finished in the pub with a fancy dinner and fine dining in between. Meeting old friends and making new friends along with the great and the good of blacksmithing in the UK.

 

Mr Bush looking splendid all suited and booted sporting a fine moustache, across the table from me,

After all that wine and port a few cold lagers were in order. This was taken by Ricky's wife outside the pub, a remarkable photo given that she was having trouble standing up straight. We had the pleasure of sitting next to Ricky and his wife at the dinner and just had a good time.

Mick ....ask Owen if he needs a smart hat...he looks like he needs a hat for ensemble.

was it hard for him to keep his elbows out of the soup?

Howard, tie in pocket. As the formalities were over this was relaxing down the pub time.

 

Ric, Owen and I both did a good job of keeping our elbows out of the soup, on account of soup not being on the menu. This was far to posh for soup. The starter was Crab & Shrimp Tian with Thai Basil Cress and Lemon Creme Fraiche. It was very nice but you could of hid the portions in a clenched fist.

 

Peter, funnily enough wearing suits in the forge did come up in conversation.

I just don't think we do things with that kind of style over here...

It might have something to do with the time scale. :)

That does put a bit of a perspective on things now don't it?
