Well...? So, tell me how the story comes out? Did I sign the book for the
father? Did everyone live happily ever after? (I hope so! I sympathize with
the father -- I hate standing in lines, and it causes me constant distress
when I am the cause of so many people doing just that, that so many people
in Europe must stand in line for so many hours simply to get my hasty
autograph... but all I can do is write my name as fast as I can for as many
hours as they let me so nobody goes away empty handed after so much
Can you get me a copy of this CD? I don't understand anything but English,
but it might be fun to have... even if all I hear is "blah blaaah blahblah
blaaaah Herr Don Rosa blahhh blahblah blaahhh..."
I wonder why Sven calls me "Mr. Don Rosa" rather than just "Mr. Rosa".
Another example of the Europeans who think the odd-sounding "Don Rosa" is
obviously a fake pen-name?
