Close your mouth Donnie we are not a codfish....

I think I can die happy now.  As you may I enjoy writing letters to celebrities.  I'm not one of these people who just sends out hundreds of letters a week to any random person either.  The majority of the people I write to are Disney or Hitchcock related.  Well about 6 months ago I wrote to Dick Van Dyke and 3 months later he sent back my Mary Poppins dvd cover signed.  It was immediately after this I remembered that I had the Mary Poppins soundtrack on vinyl.  I decided that I would try sending it to Julie Andrews hoping she would sign it.  So I wrote her a note and sent along my album cover.  I knew my girlfriend would be jealous if Mrs. Andrews actually singed my record so I sent along the book jacket to her autobiography asking if she would sign it for Becky.

On all of the sites I had read about Julie Andrews autograph seekers the feedback was this "Sent her a photo, received it back unsigned with a photo of Mrs. Andrews also unsigned."  I was hoping that sending something big like a record might help my chances.  Well it did because here's what was waiting for me in the mail on Monday. (About 2 months after I sent it)


Here's a closer look at her signature.


She was even nice enough to sign the book jacket for Becky too!



P.S. I thought I had already written about my Dick Van Dyke autograph, apparently I haven't so I will post it later in the week.
