You Will Never Guess Who I Ran Into Tonight – Reginald Martinez Jackson!!!
First, let me say ‘Thankfully, I have an IPhone’.
Then let me say, ‘Thankfully, I have a membership to www.signingshotline.com’.
Ok, here is how this all went down…
I was checking my emails on my phone when I saw that my nightly message from Signings Hotline had came through. Since the kids still had a little more to eat on their plates, I accessed the site and did my usual search of that day’s newly announced appearances.
And that is when I saw that Reggie Jackson, yes ‘The Reggie Jackson’, was going to be doing a signing in Florida.
And just 15 minutes from my house!!!
Two minutes later my shoes were on my feet, and a ball, pen, and my camera were at my side.
I arrived at the event at 6:50, and Reggie was going to be there signing until 7:30. By the time I got there, the line was down to just a few people and I was told that he would only be doing the promotional photo, not outside items.
I was fine with that, because it was ‘Reggie Freakin’ Jackson’!!!
So, I hopped in line and literally three minutes later, this was mine:
I thanked Reggie a few times for coming out to do this, and I told him that it was a true honor to meet him. He said ‘Your Welcome’ then he smiled for a quick picture with me and I was on my way.
Here is the picture of me and Mr. October:
Very cool, huh???
I was home less than twenty minutes later and the kids are now getting ready for bed.
That sure was one heck of an hour!!!!
Thank you Reggie!!!
