Dr. Alex Corbin Liu was set for the Paul Lo Duca autograph signing that was scheduled today. I certainly had to get his autograph on an 8x10 that featured Eric Gagne since the former Dodgers closer is due for his own signing two weeks from now at Frank and Son.
After leaving my house around 2:30, I arrived to the Optometry ten minutes before the start of the signing. This gave me enough time in order to purchase my ticket and 8x10. The line outside was not a hassle; if anything, it went smoothly and only went at a moderate pace because a free photo opportunity came with the autograph.
Thirty minutes into the signing, I was able to get inside in order to get my autograph. Just as Dr Alex and the staff of his optometry are hospitable and organized, Paul was quite friendly to address for a minute or two. He signed my 8x10 of him and Gagne in a beautiful use of a silver marker and happily accepted my request for a picture.
Here is the start of another amazing project. Thank you very much Paul for taking the time to sign and take photos with fans. Huge thanks to Dr. Alex Corbin Liu and his staff for making the signing worthwhile and my first time at his optometry a good experience. With that I hope to see you all next time as I attempt to get this project done with Gagne in two weeks.
