Congratulations To Mr Sharps!

Sat Jan 08, 2005 2:28 pm

Hi there,

It's nearly been a year since I met up with the above person for the first time. Since then we have come a long way. I know for a fact that one of Chris's aims was to get a top of the day in the year 2005. We are 8 days in to the new year, and the guy has already achieved this! He couldn't of done it any better neither!

After reading that i wished i congratulated you earlier on a magnificant shot that comment tells me a lot about someone i hardly know but know only as a fellow Anetter.
Well done and keep the good work up.

Indeed, a very nice shot Chris. It reminds me some good souvenirs, as I stayed in a hotel close to Victoria Station a few months ago while visiting London.

Thank you for that wonderful shot. It really brings back some good memories. Hope to get there again soon. And that I'll get sunny skies that time so I could get a London overview too!

Cheers!

Gary,

The whole purpose of uploading here is to share, at the end of the day.

Chris got top of the day with his window view, I was congratulating him on his achievement.... As this was a personal goal of his.

Thanks for all your kind words everyone.

Am I not allowed? I think I pay my first class membership fee each month for a reason?!

Gary, when you get a shot of this kind of quality/rarity... I will post for you, okay? So please take a walk.

Lets keep this discussion on the topic please!

Thanks once more to the people who have contributed in a decent fashion.

Regards,

im sure your perfectly allowed, but then again I've paid johan too i guess i must be allowed aswell. so i don't think i should listen to you when you tell me to walk should i...? afterall you don't mind someone contradicting you now and again do you? Sure i`ll be able to add some of my healthy debate to your posts. You may be the plugking but not the forum king remember. And besides, I was only commenting on what spike said
