Special Mementos From Dublin 2013

I know I have been more than blessed when it comes to meeting Leonard but luck was on my side in Dublin again and I’ve now got a few more precious items signed. I’d have been happy with him just putting his name but ever the gentleman he personalised everything.

I was blessed to meet Sylvie in New York and for her to sign this book there so I made sure to have it with me in case I met Leonard. As we were talking Leonard was telling me it is a lot of money I spend on him and his concerts and that I really shouldn’t. I told him he is worth it and only for him would I spend that kind of money. He then added a very special unique few words to this dedication.

When I first saw this magazine and loving the photo of Sharon and Leonard I had a dream of getting it signed by both. Leonard signed it first and said I had to get Sharon to sign it too. The following day it was mission accomplished!

After the 2nd Dublin concert I was speaking with Hattie Webb and she said she had something for me. I was so touched when she produced this set list for me saying she thought I might like one and then proceeded to write on it for me and also asked Charley to sign it. I was and am so honoured with this gift as never in a million years would I ask any of the band for any favours so for this to happen really touched my heart.

My initial plan when I got this bag was to use it for my course as I need a big bag for it but now it is signed it will only be used for special occasions. I was only showing this to Leonard and not asking for it to be signed as I didn’t think it would work on that type of material. Leonard after again telling me I spend too much money said it would work and he’d sign it. The ink bleed a bit and Leonard said to me I was right. I told him it was ok, there is a crack in everything. He loved the song reference and I love my unique bag!

Knowing how kind Leonard had already been with his time we asked for only one photo, one of the 3 of us together as we had no photos of the 3 of us but Leonard being Leonard said we could get photos together and separately. Yes we really are blessed!

    Fabulous, Gwen – love your blog. Have looked at others but yours is the one I like best and most identify? with – not sure why – pure enthusiasm (like me) and unpretentious perhaps …

  2. Just “walking” through these pictures and am so moved that you got to experience so much of LC.
