Default Anne's Induction - June in Seattle

I'm going to try to go to the Autograph Party and the Induction. I've got a friend who is an Anne fan tto and we do all sorts of fun stuff together. Since I moved to the Eastern side of the state I haven't seen her much so going to see Anne together will be super!
If anyone else is planning on going please let me know as I'd love to meet you!

Becky, that sounds so fantastic, but I will have to pass this time. I have my big trip to see my children in August, and I can't manage a second one and have the money to treat the kids when we get there like we want to.

I hope that your adventure is a grand one, and that you have fun visiting with your friend again. Know that I would love to be there with you if I could.

Like Cheryl said, Pictures, Pictures, Pictures !!! P L E A S E......

Default Re: Anne's Induction - June in Seattle

Ok, just two thoughts here....1) I looked over the information and I can't find anyplace where it says that Anne will BE there. Yes, she's being inducted to the SFHOF, but does that mean that she will absolutely for certain be there? If she is going to be there, count me in! Which brings me to item #2. I'm currently living near Spokane, which is about 5 hours from Seattle. My husband and I still hold a camping lot at Riverbend Campground which is about an hour south of Seattle which is where I would stay if I go to this hoopla affair. That is if I can get away for the weekend. We're in the process of building our new house and I might not be able to spare the time. Though I would make every effort to do so. IF I do go, I will possibly have room for one more person (female only please) to join me. The travel trailer is a bit on the small side, but it certainly can accommodate myself and a guest. So those interested should contact me as early as possible. We could share gas expenses from Spokane to Seattle even. My car is small, like everything else in my life. But it would certainly have room for one more! So PM me or leave a posting here and how to reach you. Oh how I hope Anne is actually going to be there and available to talk to even for just a quick 60 seconds! I've always dreamed of telling her face to face, just how much I love her work and how often it has saved my sanity by providing an escape from the real world!

From what I've heard Serrin, Anne hopes to go but it will depend on how her health is doing at the time. When you're 80 you can't guarantee you'll make it to an event halfway around the globe.

You're most welcome!

And I AM worried that Anne won't make it... the only reason for me REALLY going is to see Anne.

What do you think the possibilities are of her actually making it there? I want to get things reserved soonish, but not when I'm now unsure...

A question: Is there anywhere I could check periodically to see if Anne is actually going or not? I'd hate to buy the ticket and everything and have her not be there...

Serrin - I live in Richland WA and if my hubby and I weren't planning on some other things I'd probably take you up on the offer. I do hope you get to go and we can meet.
Serrin and Kalina - I too hope that Anne can make it to the Induction. I'm going to be positive and believe she will be there! Getting here will be a very long trip for her and with family in their early 80's I know that making the decision to travel this far is huge. Maybe if we take a hint from Peter Pan and start chanting "I believe in Anne!" she'll make it.

I sure hope that it works out for all of you to be able to get together, and that Anne is able to make it there for you to all see, and hopefully meet. She might feel better knowing that she has a group of fans there cheering her on with good thoughts.

Kalina -- I'd suggest you ask Todd about it. He's got a contact form on his website.

good for you I'd say go for it... even if Anne can't (but we're all sending you will be able to thoughts) you'd probably have fun there anyway especially hooking up with other members.

And have I mentioned I'm jealous?

Anne intends 100% to be there, believe you me, she's really looking forward to it But even she can't guarantee her health at her age, so there's always a teeny possibility that she might be prevented from going...

Wow, I'm wondering what's up with the SF Museum! I just found out that George Lucas won't be attending. With Mr Herbert and Mr Freas deceased, Anne will be the ONLY inductee there!

I guess I'm a bit excited about this induction thing. Last night I had a dream that Anne was being presented the award and before she got all the way to the podium I ran up and grabbed the award to give it to her!!! Then before I went back to my seat she asked me out for coffee afterward!

Ok, I'm getting pretty excited about tomorrow. I last saw Anne in 1999 and can't wait to see her again!
Matt, sorry I didn't get to this earlier! Don't know how I misssed it. But I'm taking a few things, can't decide now, so will do so at the party. Depends on how slammed Anne is with autograph hounds. Got one I want done for sure, but there are other's that I'd dearly love done, but won't push her to sign them. I've also got a couple books for E A Scarborough to sign, not Anne books but her Godmother series. So those are on my wish list of autographs for tomorrow.
Been an exciting week! My son and his family arrived on Wed and now Anne tomorrow! A super week!!!

Hope you have a fab time, Becky. I've bought the Godmother series in mmp but still haven't read them -- no time -- is it a good series?

Congratulate Anne from us and say we send our love!

I'm about an hour away from leaving. My hubby is out taking a walk with our grandson (guy time, ya know) and the parents are trying to nap. So I'm getting a quick few minutes on the computer.

Hans, I'll certainly pass on the congratulations from the whole MoM membership! I'm borrowing my son's digital camera since it has some zoom capabilities, mine doesn't. So I'll be taking pictures to post too. (got it already packed in my book bag.)

Matt, I'm taking several books since I can't make up my mind. I'm getting my Habit is an Old Horse signed for sure. If she's signing more than one thing then I've got a tuff choice to make. It's either DF, DQ, Restoree, Ship Who Sang or Decision at Doona, in that order. But it's Habit for sure, paid more than I wanted to for it, so getting her to sign it will help me feel better about how much I paid.

I love the Godmother books. Definitely a good read, though the third is very different from the first two.

Yes, Pam, the third is very different. Not sure why they went that way rather than continue with the first two, but I liked it also.
I asked Elizabeth if she was doing any more Godmother books at the autograph signing and she said no. But to write her publisher requesting more, she's got more she can do. So if you are a fan of her Godmothers then write the publisher requesting more.
