Who Do You Think You Are?

Despite the ever-climbing entrance fee to what used to be he Family History Fair before the TV show hijacked it and moved it to a larger, more expensive venue, I trundle along every year to see if I can tease out something new to help me fill in the blanks in my family tree. For example, I simply cannot kill off Great Uncle Ern. He must have died in 1964, when he drops out of the voters' regiser, aged over 80, but I have failed so far to find any record of his death.

My main purchase today was the latest version of my family tree programme. It cost nearly £30 and appears to be a dud disc.

On the way home, at the railway station, I was run over by a trolley transporting copies of the giveaway evening newspaper. The man pushing it blamed me! Apparently he had stopped, so could not be responsible. I am so CLEVER! I managed to get a stationary trolley to run over my foot! A defiance of the laws of physics. When pushed he apologised like an unwilling and insincere 6-year-old, would not identify himself, and shied away from my camera. Station staff were worse than indifferent. Perhaps if I'd been 25 and gorgeous...

These are the best two shots I got of the arsehole who ran over my foot:








Anyway, I've spent the evening shooting off emails to the newspaper's editor and to Network Rail, so I haven't had a chance to add another S3 episode to my list. I thought these were worth another view, though:





















Don't you just love how he dominates the scene?

I wish he'd dominate ME as MUCH as he dominates that scene! Love the caps ... the hand to mouth ... the one of he and Katie smiling. Too cute!

You have no idea how many times I have been at/in that plaza and DAMN IT never seen Vincent and/or Kate. I am so pissed. Groovy pics Val, and yes, please keep us up-to-date regarding the emails.

I take it you haven't seen our little swan lately, yes? Southern NY got ROCKED w/ another snow storm -- 2-3 feet. Yipee!!!

What a jerk! It's just so infuriating when people can't just admit they were in the wrong and apologize politely. And definitely keep us updated about any response you might get.

And I loved that interview on the plaza. They both looked so happy!

Vincent looked great, and I didn't realize how short Tiki Barber is.

Frances said...

Vincent and Kate come across as pleasant people.

I also have Family Tree software ('05 edition) I'm thinking of updating it.

I hope you get a response to your e-mails..I hate rude people, especially when being polite costs nothing and makes the world nicer :-)

Love the shots from the Plaza..they looked happy and relaxed and eager to talk about the show

Tess said...

I hope you get a response Val, but I won't be surprised if you don't...

I love how he towers over everyone else.

I've never gotten to meet a celebrity. Either I can't afford to go to wherever they're appearing, too busy, or don't know about it until later. I'll have to correct this somehow.
