This is the fifth post covering events at Shore Leave 2014, a convention of artists, performers, writers, scientists, and fans of science fiction and fantasy in general that took place from August 1 through August 3, 2014 in Hunt Valley, Maryland.
One of the guests at Shore Leave 2014, and the main attraction for many, was Richard Dean Anderson of MacGyver and Stargate SG-1 fame. And, of course, I had to get a picture!

He took time to talk to everyone, both in the picture line and the autograph line. He also gave a couple of talks and answered questions. I was only able to see one of the talks as I had a writing workshop during the last one. During the first talk he asked everyone to sing happy birthday to his daughter Wylie Quinn Annarose Anderson. He had come here (with permission from Wylie) instead of being with her on her sixteenth birthday (August 2). He had to record it twice (on his phone). The first time didn't work. As he was having trouble with his phone, someone yelled out, "MacGyver would fix it!" He replied, "I'm trying!"
