I walked up to the venue to meet up with Stuart and Ole, they were able to pick up their tickets from 10am this morning and wanted to get that out of the way.
After picking up our tickets we walked back down to the city centre, there’d been a huge festival on this past week, it was all part of the same festival that Roger played Ca-Ira for a few days ago. There were tents all over with stages, acts and bands and the place was buzzing with atmosphere.
Every type of Strudel The food market English fudge! (and a picture of the queen!)
The guys had had breakfast earlier so i grabbed a cheese and ham pretzel and we took a walk around the city before stopping off at a cafe bar in the main square.
After realising that the pen was great on fabric but no good whatsoever on glossy shiny material, Ole decided to try his luck and went off on the hunt for a “normal” pen. Stuart and i sat there joking how maybe Ole would come back with a packet of coloured crayons and a colour by numbers book! Maybe we could tell that band that we didn't want autographs but wanted to give each of them a different colour crayon and get them to colour in one of the pictures in the book! We could see who was the bets at keeping the crayon colour inside the lines and have a unique item! Sadly ole was a little more sensible that Stuart and came back in 10 minutes with a pack of two black sharpies, how boring!
The guys came back over the road and at this point i had no idea whether Roger had signed the hat or not, i know in the past there's been a couple of things he has refused to sign and he wont usually do personalised items. Stuart was laughing as he came back over and then promptly pulled out his hat with Rogers big scribble all over its peak! he said he didn't even read what was on it and just signed it, Ole had also managed to get his album cover signed too.
All 11 band members! the only one in the world!
Stuart joked that when he bought the pen and the hat he was going to throw the hat in the trash bin before he got back to us, he’s glad he didn't now!
