@The 2nd Doctor Roberts: Your username wouldn't be inspired by "The Dread Pirate Roberts" would it?

Sorry, no relation to either of the Dread Pirate Robertses. When I first joined the forum all those years ago, I attempted to go by the name "Doctor Roberts" but was informed that the name was already owned by some character who made his one and only post, then left. Since I still wanted to incorporate some part of my actual name in my forum name, "The 2nd Doctor Roberts" seemed a fitting choice.

My real name is a secret that really should never be revealed, but as this is my 1100th anniversary post, it seems an appropriate time to disregard the continuity established in the previous 1099 posts. So it can now be revealed...the name of The 2nd Doctor Roberts is...

Sorry I keep disappearing for days!

I went to Leavenworth last weekend for Maifest and my dad proposed to his highschool sweetheart!

My life has been a bit stressful lately but hopefully things are going to get better.

I'm really wanting to take story pics again but I am totally not sure where I should post them anymore.

Welcome back!

I suggest posting them in the Fan Creations section and dedicating your own thread to wherever your imagination takes you!

http://whona.realtvboard.com/f11-fan-creations

Its the best place to show off one's creativity and art.

What if it's not entirely Who-related? Like I don't have any 3.75" figures for Doctor Who (yet) and I am kind of waiting on getting Bucky before I do anything with my 5" figures again.

It doesn't matter if it's Who-related.

I had the strangest dream(s) last night and just have to put it down somewhere. Not sure about everyone else, but my dreams seem to meld into each other. So, I eventually end up in an enclosed shopping mall, the kind where the store fronts face huge curved windows on the walkway facing to the parking lot. So, it is daytime and it is a trading card show, but no one is there yet. Everything is white, the floor, the table cloths, the displays on the tables (this will make sense later), I end up speaking to Raymond Cusick (the designer of the Daleks) and it isn't just like I am watching an old dvd interview, but he and I are having a serious conversation about design and he has his cane and is noticeably older and tired.

This is where it gets a bit fuzzy, I end up coming back and we talk some more about him doing signature plates for a book and how they had been waiting for them, and he seems annoyed at this, maybe something to do with people always asking for autographs. Then he excuses himself and comes back with a photograph. He says he had this made up for me. It shows me sitting in a chair behind one of these trading card dealers tables, in what would be described as a very candid shot. I am small in the field of the photo, but my name is written in blue sharpie in Cusick's hand then he turns it over and it has his signature as big as life. At this point we are talking to another dealer he apparently knows at their table and I show the picture to him. While Ray talks to one of this dealers people I lean over and tell the man that Raymond is dead, and that I have travelled in time in order to be here to get this picture. I "know" that he died (the first conversation), but now he is alive and handed me the picture, but I know for a fact that he is dead at this moment he has given me the picture. And I start to cry. At this point it goes fuzzy again and I wake up. Of course I am mad as anyone is when they wake up from one of those dreams they want to go back to, and of course the fact that it was 'real' does not help.

Most dreams are a subconscious way of sorting through thoughts from the previous day, I had glanced at an autograph card of him I got from trading cards before I went to bed, and I had always wanted to get something, such as one of my toy daleks signed by him before it was too late, but no such luck. You have to be one of those 'special friends' to people who know the behind the scenes people.I have always regretted that.

I just had to share this and get it out of my head, before I try to go back to sleep for a bit.

Very interesting dream. Mine also tend to merge and change. Had the stuck on the bridge to St Petersburg while Godzilla destroyed it after seeing the movie dream last night. LOL

Just thought this was funny...

...no other reason.

It's rather hypnotic if you look at it long enough...

My 6" figure of Bucky Barnes came in the mail yesterday just as my friend and I were off to see "The Winter Soldier" for a third time so I took him with me and hugged him the entire movie, even when the fire alarm went off.

After the movie my friend and I went to the outlet mall to see the new Disney Store and I found Falcon.

I shrieked.

I also bought a Thor figure as well as an Avengers tshirt.

I hope Capaldi is the next Tom Baker!

Kinda in the same boat here!

Things have dried right up & pickings are slim for quality topics - IMO. Sad

Ditto - although I've taken extended breaks before and come back. I don't think deleting your account is necessary. What's the harm in leaving it active waiting for things to get exciting again?

It also seems like everything with the house needs fixing/replacing all at once, so I can't imagine choosing to spend more money on toys at the moment. Not sure I want to risk finding out that something really cool has just been released.

With the heaviest of hearts, we had to have Willow, our 10yr old Cocker Spaniel put to sleep.



She was diagnosed with mouth cancer in January & we were so lucky to get to share these last few months with her.



We got her as a pup when Moira & I were 2 months into our relationship. She was just the calmest & well mannered pup that I had ever had. I can still see her little stumpy tail wagging with glee. She loved chasing balls & digging holes. She loved life & loved cuddles.



We knew that the time was right to take her to the vets. We wanted to remember her the way she was & not the way that she would become. She fell asleep peacefully & we said goodbye. My heart is that little bit emptier now but, I am happy knowing that she will be running around with Charlie over Rainbow Bridge.



Until we see each other again, run free Willow & enjoy the warm sun on your back.



I miss you so much. You were my best friend!
