And This year’s girl wouldn’t give me any gossip about when she had lunch with him!

Neil was nearly a no-show too - keeping us hanging on for a dramatic last minute entrance, no doubt.
Perhaps Bruce was worried he'd have to keep us all in alcohol - though I thought most people were restrained. Like others have said, there was less Costello chat and more social interchanges but it was great to have an international gathering ( U.K., Sweden the U.S. and Ireland) all represented and hardly a mention of Trump, Boris or Brexit (as if !!)
Great to meet the amazing Mark who did so much for the old and the current wiki and Kjell who keeps giving me more live work to deal with ;-) and all our newcomers who didn't seem too perturbed at our little idiosyncrasies!

I take it you’re not including the guy we encountered outside...

Great day for me too. Great to see all familiar and new faces. Highlight to meet This years girl, after all these years. Another was when Groothuizens book "Going through the Motions" were brought up and someone spotted yours truly among the colaborators. Sulky will be offered more and more tapes as long as I find things for him. Which then indicates me going to UK to hand them over.

You know I've never been to Sweden before ( Norway was such a disappointment last June, no snow !!) so maybe you've thrown the gauntlet down and Mohammed will have to come to the mountain !
I can see there's going to be no peace for me until the next 40 year anniversary tour sequence :roll:
