Poor Tom Felton. I don’t think he ever expected the likes of Mom and me to come get a photo with him during DragonCon 2011. Tom is best known for playing Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies, and here were Mom and I looking like we’d arrived for a Malfoy family reunion. In truth, I was a steampunk widow, and Mom was The Widow Gashleycrumb. Tom was an absolute gentleman, and even told us we looked fabulous. The compliment made our day!
