Just got back from Pensacon 2017 and it was awesome. It's like a nerd family reunion with all my nerd friends. So many of us make this convention every year. So , I just remember I have a blog and should be using it.
So , I'm gonna post some memories in me blog but just concentrate on one at a time... then the others will come later.
First day of Pensacon. A bunch of us are eating breakfast at the big table like we do every year. It's breakfast time and the host hotel has a cool restaurant in the hotel. We're all eating there when in walks David Bradley. That's right , Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, The Strain, An Adventure in Space & Time (Doctor Who special). That David Bradley. He walks over and talks to Mike Ensley (the guy who started Pensacon) and then sits at the table behind us. It's neat and cool just to be eating a table away from a cool nice guy like that but then we all get up and start leaving when I pick up my big furry horned puppet, Rosco. I carry this puppet to shows and cons and he's been to every Pensacon. David sees him and points saying, "That's brilliant." So I step over and we talk about the puppet. He asks if I'm doing a show over the weekend and I tell him no that the puppet just helps in selling my comics and art and I also do interviews with him. We talk about the An Adventure in Time & Space show he did. I thank him and go about my way.
Later that day I'm waiting while the Slyvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred set up so I can interview them when David walks up. He asks the volunteer next to me if she's met the Puppet. He tells her that he had breakfast with the puppet and that the puppet ate all his food. We have a good laugh and he goes on about his way.
So who do I run into on my way out of breakfast the next day? That's right , it's David again and yes I do have the puppet. He laughs and says, " I just keep running into you and this puppet, don't I." And yes, the puppet and myself ran into David for just about every breakfast. Even though Monday morning Rosco the puppet was packed in the car for the ride home I did have my writing pen with me and the writing pen is a snowman puppet. So at least I had a puppet of some sort when I ran into David again as I was leaving.
Stay tooned for more Pensacon Memories coming later I tells ya and have a bubbatastic day.
