Sounds like you had a great time, Tracy. Did you tell Tom you post on his forum?

Well done Tracy, it's fans like you that are the heart and soul of Who fandom and must be one of the reasons why Tom continues to do all the signings he does, the love he receives. Hopefully I can meet him in 2012 as it'll be 15 years since I met him when he did his book signing here in Yeovil in late '97 :D

Hope to meet a nautical cove or two online to chat about Tom, "Who", etc :-)

I'd still like to make it to that one. I couldn't make it to the oct. One because we already had plans to go to Florida. The only thing that would worry me is the weather. I've never been to the United Kingdom before in winter or any other time.
It would be a hoot to meet
some of you peeps though, lol.
