Why does everyone ignore the presence of the young lady? :unsure:

She probably attracted more gentlemen to the table & did more work than the blokes combined! ;)

Hihihi, yes that's miss 63cpe. We took the weekend for an out-of-area operation and had a great time sightseeing Kortrijk enjoying some Beers and the Belgian good.

Like Hobbes says, she was trying to sell my models but couldn't work out the correct pricing..there were question though... ;D

If my wife had access to my models in an environment where they could be sold, they'd be gone in half an hour, maximum, & I wouldn't see a single cent of it. :o
