Queenâ€™s day was our first time to do a TB meet-up. We were running late that morning. On the was to the meet-up Rob bought a pink pony for a friends birthday from a little girl on the street. We made it to the bar and found the large group of TBers. We introduced ourselves to everyone. There were questions about Rob and the pink pony. The bar cat was not happy about the pink pony at all. We decided that would be a good time for an exit.
The group moved outside and got organized to walk. We headed out through the crowded streets looking at things along the way and chatting. We managed to rotate to different people. It was really nice to finally meet Larry (Larrys) Keiko (KeikoCreative), Jos (jos-nijenhuis), Anna (dolfijn), and all the others in person. The group would occasionally get spread out so Rob would hold up the pink pony for people to collect around. It worked well because he is rather tall and the pony stood out.
We were enjoying the sights. The only thing that bothered us was a mother who had her young daughters out on the street dancing for money. She was standing behind them with a cigarette telling them to dance. It was rather sad.
We stayed with group as long as we could and then headed off to our other engagement that day.
