We had the distinct pleasure of getting together last night with 5 of our Tipple attendees. A hearty thanks to Mr. and Mrs. IAHFLYR for playing host! The conversation, dinner and beverages were all delightful! Attending this small gathering were pluto77, the nationwides and of course our gracious hosts. In a reprisal of an earlier pre-tipple meet up, we also took a Tipple toes shot! A great time was had by all!
Awww I love this! I wish I could have been there. Great Tiny Tipple Toe Shot!
So... how was the grilling? I bet delish with IAHFLYR's skills.
A few years ago I never would have imagined that a hotel company could bring people together and cultivate friendships. It is wonderful!
Good stuff Houstonians (that pluto is everywhere!). Once again IAHFLYR conserves auto mileage. Sadly, if he starts dropping off in his grilling expertise, it's like Willie Mays playing for the Mets; a great one losing a step .
bejacob - great to hear about Tipple Two discussions, thanks for the effort. Depending on how late in the year Tipple Two goes, according to FBI aging software, this is what the Tiny Tipple Two men might look like :
I'm setting off the erc-o-meter!!!
When you are as old as I am conservation is muy importane. 20,229 and going strong, not bad for almost five years old huh?
Don't you worry pal, I'll get back on the "grilling expertise" when you come to town for a Nats vs Astros game at the Juice Box and we drag "that pluto77 is everywhere" for her first visit to Minute Maid Park even though it won't be her beloved Giants. I think we might even be able to coerce a few other Insiders into H-Town for a Tiny TIPPLE Three with Toes of course.
I love this site and last night only provided more of a reason to get out there and "Keep on Keepin' On" attitude.
Last night was indeed sensational, delightful, memorable. Okay, downright fun!! Thanks so much ❤️ to the IAHFLYR's for their unsurpassed hospitality and the nationwide's for taking the time for us in the midst of such a tight travel schedule. Love, love, loved it all , and IAHFLYR, stop that right now about the grillin.' It was delicious and appreciated, and I froze the leftovers (to safely survive the flight home) that you gave me and we will be having them for dinner tonight!
My brief weekend in Texas (precipitated by a wedding between two young Aggie grads) overflowed with happy times and cherished memories. Very impressed with both Texas and The Woodlands! Any mini-TIPPLE is always a welcome prospect!
Great to see a tiny-TIPPLE, keeping the spirit of last September alive.
As bejacob has remarked, discussions for TIPPLE-2 are under way and we definitely want to run another. We don't think 2017 is a very good idea as many of us have our travel plans worked out long in advance, and of course TIPPLING is by no means cheap, especially for those that fly in.
In the meantime another mini-TIPPLE is in advanced planning when I'm (hopefully) going to meet up at the LHR Ren with fistuk and SeaTexan at the end of May in honour of SeaTexans hop across the pond. Photos will be posted - No wig!
