Picked up a few books last month and one I'm SO especially excited about! Subscribe for more video blogs once, sometimes twice a week!

My sis Julia LeBlanc (who many of you know as the fantastic creator of all the Outlander fanvids on my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/nancy777ca got us tickets to the Diana Gabaldon appearance this past Saturday in Fergus, Ontario.
The weather has a sense of humour and decided to give us the FULL Scottish experience by pouring rain almost all day. When we arrived there were already people in line to get their books signed who had been held over from an earlier morning signing that Diana had to cut short because she wasn't feeling well. She promised to return a few hours later to finish signing their books so they stayed in their places.
My sis and I opted to grab our seats and settle in early so we'd be up close to Diana when she gave her talk at 2 o'clock and then get our books signed afterwards.
When we walked in, this was in the center of the room. A Doctor Who Tardis...I didn't get it at first. I don't know what was wrong with my brain.
Festivities began with , of course, bagpipe music and one gentleman showing off different instruments.
Then came the Chief of 1,000 year old Clan Leslie giving us the history of his clan. It was at this point that it occurred to me, after looking at these things for about an hour that what I was looking was the Outlander stones!
Seriously. I don't know what was wrong with my brain that day. Lol!
At about 4:30 one of the attendants suggested that those who had a weekend pass (my sis and I did not) could come back tomorrow and were given a number to get their books signed first tomorrow. This cut the line down considerably and at about 4:45 there were only 10 of us left in line. Diana was like a machine. Sign, smile (how her face wasn't stiff by that point is amazing to me!) a few words, next!
