It’s that time again! Preparing for the 2014 Special 50th Anniversary TJI.com Fan Calendar!!!
2 Kinds of Photos Are Needed:
First, photos you or another fan took of Tom, either performing or off stage.
We cannot use professional photos unless the owner gives written permission.
Second, photos of you with Tom.
Because this calendar will be twice as large as the previous ones, some photos will be reused and there will be room for new ones. In addition, if you buy a calendar, you have the option of writing a few words — exactly how many will be determined — about what Sir Tom has meant to you over the years.
Send all photos using the contact link below on the sidebar at right.
Photos should be 300 dpi (high resolution). If you have questions, just email me using the “contact” link below right.
Mr. Cassidy & Mr. Jones:
It was a big news story in the US that, on Wednesday, former teen idol David Cassidy (remember The Partridge Family
?) was arrested near in Schodack, New York, a town near the Saratoga Race Track where he is a regular racegoer. So, why is this news on a Tom Jones website — and why was it on every network and in most newspaper? Well, here’s what the Albany Times Union
wrote about the incident:
When “The Partridge Family” star David Cassidy jokingly asked town patrolman Tom Jones “What’s new, pussycat?” at a traffic stop Wednesday, Jones, a young rookie, had no idea what he was talking about.
“I did not know who he was or what he meant by that,” Jones said Wednesday as he recalled stopping the ’70s teen heartthrob just after midnight.
Cassidy, 63, did not dim his headlights when approaching Jones’ patrol car on Columbia Turnpike.
“He was very polite and courteous and joking around despite the situation,” Jones said.
By the way, in the US, if you get Antenna TV, the NBC oldies netowrk, you can watch The Partridge Family every weekday.
Tom, who according to the article here, insisted on this show, will go again to Bulgaria:
