I'M FLOATING! Why? Read! by Katherine_B on 21 December 2004 3:49am
 
Thankyou Mr Postman!!

I TOO HAVE HAD A SIGNED PHOTO FROM HIS ROYAL PALIN-NESS!!!!

Came on Monday morning - a 10 by 8-sized pic of him wearing a sky-blue shirt and a nice pair of eyes!

Autograph reads: "To Katherine - from a fellow railway fan! Good Luck!" I have it by the computer as I write...

Palinite about to experience helium-inflation of the head; please send medical backup..... too late... 6,000 feet and climbing.... :D :D :D

OMG! OMG! Excuse me while I get geared up but that's great!

Did you write to his Prominent Productions address?

How long did it take for you to get it?

What did you write?

Oh, you lucky bastard ;)

I went to his Himalaya book signing in Nottingham last October, and took with me a 7-page travelogue, 'Railway Recollections' I wrote in 1997. It was all about my first railway trip to London. It was also my first attempt at one after being inspired by his fantastic travel writings.

Took a lot of courage to decide to give it to him but I did so; surprised I even remembered I was shaking so much with nerves when I met him! I put my name and address at the bottom of the last page so he could reply to me if he wanted, and hey bingo - got my signed photo for my efforts!!

What a Top Bloke he is!

That's pretty cool. When you say last October, you mean October 2003, right?

No - last October, I mean October 2004.... as it's the last one to have happened....

Oh... Sorry, I'm from Denmark;)

Anyway, that means you got it back quite fast... How cool! I hope he doesn't read this, but that was extremely NICE of him;)
