I should let you know, that my "In-Person Scoop" in the forthcoming August issue, will not be as extensive as my previous three articles. Actually, the first and third articles were labeled as "One Brief Signing Moment" (2 full pages). The second article was posted under "News" (2 columns covering 2 pages). I actually have an "In-Person Scoop" on Melissa Gilbert in this month's (May 2010) issue.
I don't think that they do many appearances like this. So it was really specail and nice that they were there. Tim was especially nice at shoe closing that Saturday. When I shook his hand and told him how much I appreciated the opportunity to finally meet him, he said, "After all these years."
Yeah, for me, too! I told both of them that I had attempted to meet them in 1995 (I believe) when they made an appearance at Disney World here in FL at a Disneyana Convention. I decided to go on "Public Day" only to learn that both of them had left the day before. Talk about disappointment! I more than made up for it last month! Tim was funny when he told me to make sure people know that I was NOT wearing my Triple R shirt when they signed it.
Have you been able to get the earlier issues? By the way, I printed out your blog on your Mouseketeer weekend. Hope you don't mind. I still chuckle on your comment on your nervousness at meeting Spin and Marty (Tim and David). :) Aren't you glad I encouraged you for your photo op with htem?
The first one was in the September 2003 issue, pages 132 &133 : One Brief Signing Moment--Julie's Mouse Hunt. The second one was in the March 2005 issue ; the innermost columns of the News pages 14 &15 : A Mouse in the House. That one was a really cool experience!
Yes it was a wonderful occasion. I've actually had three Mouseketeer stories in AUTOGRAPH. I'm hoping that they'll run one on Spin and Marty...but havn't heard anything from them as yet. I had several cool exchanges during the weekend with Nicholas Hammond (Friedrich von Trapp in "The Sound of Music"). Do I see that you live in the UK?! I thought you lived in California, from the blog.
