Astronaut Chris Hadfield with our moustache patches

We attended the Chris Hadfield book signing event in Cardiff on Tuesday 17th December. We happily queued with a few hundred happy others. It got cold but kept dry. A great bunch of interested and interesting people, old and young with Chris Hadfield as the inspiration for being there.

A brief encounter but well worth the wait, Chris signed with inscriptions if required. We presented Chris with some of the moustache patches, he offered to sign one for me, but me at 55 years (and still tongue tied, astronauts my boyhood heroes) I politely refused and regretted it ever since. Ah well there is always next time.
