Kirk & Tyrone!!!

First of all, I'd like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends south of the 49th Paralell.  I hope you enjoy Thanksgiving with people you love and please don't get too crazy over the commercial materialism of Black Friday.  Kick back, put your feet up and stitch!

Kirk & Tyrone?  Some of you may ask... if you're a Corrie fan (Coronation Street) you don't even have to guess... you KNOW!  Over the last few years, stars from Coronation Street have been coming across "The Pond" and doing little tours where they talk and have a Q&A session.

This is the third one of these my Mum and I have gone to.  My Mum has been watching it since it first aired in 1960 when she was a young girl, and except for the few years we lived in Texas I've watched it all my life.    I don't miss an episode, its something my PVR is impermanently programmed to record.

This time around it was the actors who played the characters Kirk (Andrew Whyment) and Tyrone (Alan Halsall).  Once again all I can say is it was such an enjoyable evening!  The actors were witty and fun and we had a lot of great laughs.

So now, I've seen five actors from Coronation Street.  The characters I've now seen speak are Roy, Haley  Ken, Kirk, and Tyrone.  If I had an opportunity I'd love to see the actors who play Tracey and Steve, what a riot that would be!!!

 Who else out there in Stitching Blogland are Corrie fans???

OMG! I can't believe you've seem them!!! I'm sadly a soap addicted person & am daily in front of my tv with my xstitch to watch the episodes. Glad you're enjoying Corrie too, Mii.

I always seem to miss these visits! I bet these two were fun to hear. I think Tracey and Steve would be a hoot too :)

I am a huge Corrie fan and even though we have caught up considerably here I watch it when it airs in the UK so I'm a bit ahead.

I'm also a huge fan of Eastenders and Emmerdale!

I just LOVE British TV :)
