Yes, she'll have to report in full!

Good correction, AnnMarie, good one

So, all of you: reports on all Anne McCaffrey related issues (be it gathers, buying stuff, parties or Terran coincidences) are mandatory!

I'm just back and online, but pics not downloaded yet. It was a great day believe me! Anne looked fabulous and the ceremony was very nice! I'll do a full report and get the pics posted as soon as I can. I know you're all eager to hear about it, but I don't want to leave anything out!

Well, the difficulty now is getting the pictures. I borrowed my son's camera, because it has a little bit of zoom where mine has NONE. But I can't download the pics!!! He didn't bring his cable and mine doesn't fit his!!!! So I'll work on the written part anyway and post the pictures as soon as I can. I'm going to try putting them on cd at Walgreens (it's down the street) and then transfer them to my computer that way, if I can. If not then we'll have to wait till they get home and send me the pictures. But they'll be worth the wait since my camera isn't good at distance! Sorry!

Eww, C_ris!!!!

Well, I've written down my experiences from the airport and back again, it's 4 ½ pages long! I'll have to cut some things out to make it more manageable. I also managed to get the pictures on a cd and loaded onto my computer. I've got to play with some of them since they are very dark ones from the Induction ceremony. I apologize in advance for them.

Ok, off to work on the report!

I know, but I want this to be good.
Ok, here's a teaser picture........

It's of the venue where the ceremony was held. The Sky Church in the EMP (Experience Music Project). The SF Museum is located within the EMP.....



Probably not what you were expecting for a teaser, but I'm saving the best for the report.
