Dragon Con 2009 #4
I went on the historic trolley tour in the morning. It took two hours and went round a fair slice of Atlanta. Definitely worth doing once if you're ever in town.
After I got back, I collected my photo shoot picture of me with Bonita and went over to the Hilton hotel to show her. We had a good time chatting, she signed the picture. Then I took a huge speculation; I asked John Billingsly to sign my Chuck comic. I know he hasn't been in it yet; it's just wild mad guesswork on my part :-).
I must have spent nearly half an hour there; talking to either Bonita, John or the other fans who came to the table. I told her my parents had been in the [UK] RAF. I sent my love to the cast of 'Chuck'. We talked a bit about T1 and the Subway breakout. A US Army veteran turned up and he gave me a fairly comprehensive guide to the meaning of General Beckman's ribbons; at least the ones he recognised. So here it is!
Air Force Cross; Air Force Distinguished Service Medal; DOP Distinguished Service; Distinguished Flying Cross; Bronze Star with valor Device; Meritorious Service Medal; National Defense 3 campaign stars; American Expeditionary Force; Humanitarian Assistance; Saudi liberation of Kuwait; Joint Service Commendation Medal; Joint Service Achievement Medal
I trawled around a couple of the dealers' rooms, but didn't buy anything. Then that was about that; a couple more panels and Dragon Con was finished for another year.
