I sort of met him in 2009. He walked up while I was manning the Emporium 's booth and said something funny about it being typical of Bernard to be off doing fun things while others did the work. I was too tongue tied to say anything, so I just smiled really big. I think I scared him. :oops:

Like quite a few people on this forum I've met him so many times I cannot imagine having any issue with talking to him he is just a really nice person to talk to :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Hello Good people!
I'm attending the DW con, and trading there in character ath Igor... I'll be thelling my wonderful Loko Glatth jewelry...

Now I have a problem. Thome time ago I conthtructed an "Igor Lab" in a thuitcathe... Thome of you may have theen it at Wincanton...
It'th a thplended piethe of kit, and I'd really like to dithplay it at the convention... It hath jarth of thuthpithiouth organth, (and try thaying that fatht), Thpare Parthth and huge amounth of thparkth!

I'd really like to exhibit thith item, either on my thtall or in the exhibition, becauthe it it great fun!

However, I don't drive, and by the time I have thrapped on a ruckthack, and managed the two giant trolly bagth that contain my thtall, thtock, and clothing etc. I don't have a third arm to carry the Igor Lab cathe. I'd try to thew one on but I'm not thure it would be ready in time... I'm thtill trying to get the thpare thumb thorted!

Is there any kind thoul who'th driving up to the convention from anywhere near London and might have room for one extra Thuitcathe? (I would deliver it to you and retrieve it from you before and after the con).

It meathureth about 28",by 20", by 8", and really ithn't too heavy. If you can help pleathe contact my by PM. Thuitable bribes and blandithmentth available on perthonal application!

I'll be on a train and not particularly near London in any case - I wish you luck on your noble quest.
