Always nice to meet another grandmother-type fan. (Actually, I like to meet all ages of fans but it gives me another chance to mention I'm a grandma). It must be interesting to live in Huntsville. You can visit the Space Center any time you wish!

Welcome to our party, Khaki,
be assured that you're not barki
up the wrong tree if, if needs be,
you have anything to ask,

anything at all concerning--
questions quiet, questions burning--
of our dear Anne (we're one big fan,
fan family that likes to bask).

--In the light of happiness, that is.... :wave:

This thread hasn't been posted in since November of 2004? (I'm guessing the date in the purple bar IS the post creation date.) Um, well. It still looks like the place to introduce myself.

My name is Andrea. I go by Vita online. I've been reading Anne's books since middle school when a friend introduced me to the Harper Hall series. In order to read more about Pern and dragons, I had to get my adult library card. What a wide world that opened up for me!

In the many years since, I've read most everything that Anne's written. I confess a preference for those novels that have a romantic angle to them. For instance, I loved F'lar and Lessa's and F'nor and Brekke's stories in Dragonflight and Dragonquest. The books with more of a science fiction bent to them are excellent, of course, but I'm a sucker for a love story!

More later. Gotta run.

Welcome to MoM Vita...^^

I agree with the F'lar and Lessa story, I read them all out of order and I rather enjoyed reading about the progression of their relationship. -Chuckles-

I'm sure you'll enjoy your time here...^^ :good:

Welcome to a Meeting of Minds Vita! :bouncy:

Perhaps you were looking at page 1?

I'm a sucker for science personally (see my long neglected- until the summer again- Science of Pern) but I still find Dflight to be my favourite.

Hi Vita/Andrea, you did indeed find the right place to introduce yourself. Welcome to MoM!

dragonnkitten May 7 2007 06:31 PM

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
I am pleased to introduce.................

Myself!!! heehee!!!! :D

My name is Victoria, and I have been an Anne McCaffrey fan for 12 years. My first book was The Rowan. I have fallen in love with every book of hers that I have read. My favorite series being a toss up between the Freedom Series and the Petaybee series.

welcome to both dragonkitty & Vita please pull up a chair and share your thoughts

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
G'day, Vita!

I'm not as prevalent here as I used to be, but I still post up my poemlets.

Speaking of which...

Welcome to our BB Board,
with good luck you won't be bored--
B2 equals Bulletin,
meaning where you post notes in,
and the extra B that's cute?
That extra B means it's Beaut! :good:

So pull a loungue up, sofa, or chair,
and have as much fun as you can bear! :wave:

I hope that you have a lovely stay with us, and that you make lots of new friends. If you ever have a question, feel free to ask, as the only silly question is the one that hasn't been asked yet. And never will.

G'day Dragonnkitten! :wave:

As you've seen, I post poemlets when I'm in the mood, and I am in the mood right now....

*ahem*

Welcome to a Meeting of Minds,
feel free to explore and to finds
lots and lots of posts and stuff
until you want to scream enough,
but then I haven't reached that stage
cause there's always another page.

And if you are lucky, may
you find more friends to play
with....

Hello, neighbor!!! This is terrific! :D I'm from Montevallo (the geographic center of the state, as a matter of fact.) I also attended college at the University of Montevallo for a while. I've been to Huntsville several times, but it's been awhile. So glad you decided to join! I'll be sure to keep a look out for ya' when I'm online! :good:

Gwina May 8 2007 04:44 AM

@ Khaki! I forgot to address you properly in my previous post!

And hello to Dragonkitten and Vita! Nice to meet you!

vita May 8 2007 12:27 PM

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
> Perhaps you were looking at page 1?

Yes, I was. And it was perfectly obvious when I came back to check for replies. I don't know why I didn't see it at first. I guess I should finish my introduction.

I'm a Baltimorean transplanted to Austin, Texas. I was a graphic designer, but I've been sidelined with health issues for a while now. That mostly stinks, but a side benefit is that I've had time to reread the entire Pern series and I'm currently on the last book of the Talent series. I just scored Naomi Novik's books at the local used bookstore, so those will likely be next.

My husband and I are owned by three cats. Annie, my alpha, is currently perched on the back of my chair. She's head butting me fiercely because my priorities are screwed up. (Her first, anything else second.) I may use her picture for my avatar as I lack one of those wonderful illustrations that you all seem to have. (I didn't even look to see what the default illustration is. A blue fire lizard, perhaps?)

More later, either here or I might venture out into the other Threads, er, threads. Should they be called topics? Threads is, er, rather skeery ...

Khaki May 8 2007 03:09 PM

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
Hello to fellow newcommers Vita and Dragonkitten. I know the feeling about being owned by cats, My husband and I are. certainly owned by ours. I am enjoying looking around when I get a minute. Like you I am having to find my way and don't always arrive where I want to be. time with help that I suppose. I hope you will both enjoy it as much as I am.
Hey Gwina! I have been to Montevallo and few times. I spent several years in Birmingham. I attened UAB there and worked there several years. I had osme friend from Montevallo. Lost track of them yers ago though.

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
Hello back!

The kitty in my avatar is one of my babies. Her name is Kassy and she is a longhaired Calico. We think that she has ragdoll or main coon in her. She was a rescue. Actually all 4 of our girls were rescues. We have a Tortiseshell (Katrina), a short haired calico (Piper), a short haired tabby (Tabby), and of course Kassy.

If anyone owns anyone in this family, Katrina owns us all. She thinks that the other kitties are playtoys and us humans are her servants.

Heehee!!:D

Hello fellow newcomers! i hope you find this site of anne's a very comfy place to 'kick back and relax'. i know i have. :D @ Vita, i also love the romance, too, although i mostly lean toward the lessa-f'lar versions because i'm a hard core F'lar fan!!! :drool:

If you are not a cat lover you can just skip this.
Vita, I have several cats that look just like your avatar. Mty Mick is the closest though. He is 11 years old and born on Marhc 15th. He once had a sister named Paddy (now deceased). We have a bunch of those tabbies.
Dragonkitten, my lead cat is my baby Mushroom a Siameese tabby mix that is also a rumpy Manx. She is a mess! rules us humans. She is 12 years old but acts just like a kitten.

if you look under the thread is it ok to complain you can see picture of my Tiger & kibbie's cat two. Also the opposums that mom feeds

vita May 10 2007 12:20 PM

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
Annie is a rather common-looking gray tiger-striped tabby, at least in this picture. She is sitting right next to me, squawking rather loudy, and insisting that there is NOTHING common about her at all. She is reminding me that she has curious patches of red mixed into her gray tiger-striping, most notably on her head. Being a little red-headed orphan girl is no doubt why the shelter named her Annie. She is bold and feisty, just like her namesake.

Dragonkitten is a fine name for an alpha cat (or any other cat). I'm sure she'd be a gold if she were a fire lizard. I'm off to look at Maw's four-legged children.

Khaki May 10 2007 01:50 PM

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
Vita, I have several tabbies that have the red patches. They have a tortious shell in the ancestory.
Mawofone, we also feed all kinds of critters even when we don't mean to. The racoons eat bird food and cat food we put out (for outside non tame cats and birds). I see squirrels and rabbits and possums too now and then.
