Tanzanite and Me.

Post by EC2 » Mon October 11th, 2010, 10:20 pm

I'm not sure if this should go into 'The Best Thing Today' - it certainly feels like it should, but here is a photo of Tanzanite (Daphne) from the forum and me, having a meet up in Nottingham tonight during her whirlwind tour of the UK. We all went out to restaurant near the hotel for a meal. This was taken by her husband Chip. We got on really well together - a great evening! They were in Canterbury today as well. Off to Newcastle tomorrow.

Daphne also brought me this lovely bookmark which I have displayed next to The Greatest Knight!

So nice to see Tanzanite in the flesh, so to speak. Looks like you had a great time.

Lovely shot, sounds like you had a good time. I'm guessing you two chatted up a storm, book wise.
