I finally got a chance to meet Freddy and his friend Joyce this evening. They were in the adjacent town for a convention and we decided to go out for dinner. My wife and I picked Freddy and Joyce up from their hotel in Manhattan Beach and we enjoyed a lovely dinner at Kincaids, a restaurant on Redondo Beach's Fisherman's Wharf.

After dinner, we drove to my shop and I gave Freddy and Joyce a quick tour of BullGoose Headquarters. Freddy is a true gentleman and it was a pleasure meeting him.

As luck would have it, we both forgot our cameras. Here is a quick iphone pic taken outside the shop.

Two of the finest gents one could ever wish to meet!!

Freddy set me on the path to acquiring a myriad of different soaps and creams, and Phil made it easy for me to continue my collection on my own!!

All the best to them both, and I wish I could have shared the occasion!!

Gentlemen, I have to tell you what a fantastic experience this turned out to be. My friend, Joyce, and I both agreed that we had a great evening out. Phil and his wife are just exceptional hosts.

Of course, I could not leave BullGoose International Headquarters without purchasing a couple of creams, one a replacement and one coveted for a while (Geo. F. Trumper Rose and I Coloniali with Rhubarb, respectively). Getting them at the source made it all the more enjoyable.

Johnny, if you read this, the Floid Blue that Phil gave me is an absolute winner and I understand your love of it. What a great start to a morning! My only complaint is that the scent doesn't last.

Also, gents, I got to see that Haz-Mat drum that FedEx sent the damaged Floid Blue bottles in, in all it's glory and it is unbelievable. Phil thought it might weigh about thirty pounds and I can easily believe it. Mind boggling, to say the least. Rolleyes

And, Jerry, Papa definitely but give me a break on Grandpa. 24

All in all, this was a wonderful night out with Phil and his wife, both of whom are hosts extraordinaire. Thumbsup
