The Hit Squad

By dudler  
A commando raid on the Black Country Living Museum yesterday, involving a number of EPZ 'faces' - the lead image shows both woollybills (Bill and Moira) , and dark_lord (Keith), while the second has Malc the Mod (aka saltireblue) turning his attention to the same subject. Third off is a shot of Keith and mistere (Dave) seeking out still life, and the final image is Moira, proudly displaying her infamous 'black plastic bag'...

I am reasonably certain that similarly discreditable images of me will turn up in the next few days.

I guess this is what is termed a pre-emptive strike...

I could remark that the Black Country Living Museum 'never knew what hit it', but we were all far too polite and discreet . . . mostly SmileWink
All thanks to you for organising a first-class meet.

PS Please note that I was flying the flag for EPZ.
Also that thanks to the infamous BPB I returned with clean knees...

But not clean hands, Moira...

May have to add another version!

I have duly added a version demonstrating that Moira may want to carry extra black plastic bags to put on dirty surfaces she plans to put her hands on...
Didn't they tell you ? They can't hear a thing when they put their trunks in their ears !

Dave and Keith look like part of a plain-clothed police stand-off, telling their their foe 'comes out with your hands up!'.
Moira with her black plastic bag looks like she is saying, 'this was the size of my knickers before starting the slimming plan!'

Many thanks to John and Janet for their superb hospitality, and to all the participants for their part in a very enjoyable raid.
Mission accomplished!

Usually the black plastic bags are smaller and are carried by dog owners, but unless Moira has an Elephant I don't know what she uses the BPB for.


I know I know I read the caption, but what the hell I had the caption in my head.

I promise, no 'discreditable images' of you will leave this hard drive Smile

Great to see the faces behind the names - always wondered what the erudite Moira
looked like - she's so good with her comments as is Bill!
I use unused charity bags for kneeling.

Looks like you all had a great time at the museum.
I'm looking forward to seeing some more pictures of the gang.

And, that most unusual situation that you took care of John, photographers getting photographed. As we all know, almost never happens. Don't know this place....good captures.
