TOTGA Day to everyone! I hope you’ll enjoy these little blasts
from the past. As we neared the 10th anniversary of Andrew’s
premiere TBAA episode, I challenged members of the JABB YahooGroup to
share their first memories of Andrew or tell what their fictional
counterparts might do for Andrew to mark this momentous occasion.
Well, I ended up with one of each. Hope you enjoy them. And
if you read this and would like to add your own take on either, please
feel free to email me and I’ll add it on.
Liz shares her first recollections of Andrew…
I don't recall if I first saw 'Andrew' in TOTGA or not. I do know that
I did see him in 'Til We Meet Again' and thought "Mmmm this could be
interesting". I did wonder at first if John was going to be just guest
staring as Andrew on occasion the way that Charles Rocket did with
No matter, I liked his acting and his looks were great (I daydream a
lot so this just added to the dreams I already think about - I rarely
recall any dreams I have at night so I daydream lol). I think one
downfall were his eyes. Whenever I check out a guy, I always look at
his eyes and smile (plus a few other things).
It's been a joy and a treat ever since.
Jenni tells what Lady JenniAnn (with a lil help from some friends in
high places) might do for Andrew to mark the 10th anniversary…
Thankfully, no one was around to witness the strange scene of Lady
JenniAnn traipsing about with a blindfolded Andrew behind her.
Adam walked beside him, guiding him past the occasional rock jutting
from the ground.
“Why can’t I know where we’re going, again?” Andrew asked, running his
hand through his hair a bit worriedly.
“Cause it’s a surprise! Just trust me, Andrew!” JenniAnn
laughed when that comment made Andrew looked even more concerned.
“Okay, well, trust Adam.”
Andrew smiled amusedly and shook his head. “Hey, what’s that
“You’ll see, my friend,” Adam responded and they continued on for a few
“Okay, you can look now,” JenniAnn announced when they stopped.
Andrew took off the scarf and stared at the massive form before
them. “It’s… but how did you… the exact one…” He was
clearly choked up.
Adam and JenniAnn looked pleased with themselves for eliciting such a
reaction. “Ten years ago tonight ‘The One that Got Away’
aired. We asked Tess if the episode was at all factual and when
she said yes, set about tracking down this train. Well, go on
inside,” JenniAnn indicated the door and Andrew proceeded in amidst
cheers from his gathered friends all ready in that car.
The other two remained outside for a moment. “So… I don’t think
he has to know that this is also the 10th anniversary of my yelling ‘Oh
my gosh!! Who is that?! Ahh!! Where’s Adam!? I
want Adam back!!’ do you?” JenniAnn questioned the angel,
blushing as she remembered her dismay.
Adam considered this for a moment then shook his head. “I think
that revelation is more appropriate for, say, the 14th anniversary?”
The woman laughed, “Sounds like a plan.” Suddenly her face went
ashen. “Oh… oh… uh oh…”
“I forgot those mini-meatballs after I promised Tess… Shoot!” she
“Ask and ye shall receive,” Adam quoted and produced a tray of the hors
JenniAnn giggled then the two proceeded in. Tess sang “The Rose”
and the train set off, filled with Androolers and friends. After
Monica shared the story of her first meeting with Andrew, everyone else
got up and shared stories about him. Long into the night they
celebrated the episode that had been the start of bringing many of them
