Default #73 - 28 November 2011 - Photos of Anne or ones that make you think of her

Okay, so the topic is a bit broad. But, I wanted a place to share favorite photos you've taken of Anne, or if not of her, ones that make you think of her. These could include places that make you think of her worlds as well.

One showing Anne's great sense of humor. Several members had formed a little group we called the hellkats of WAM. We didn't have a spare pair of ears and horns and when she busted us in the front row giggling and asked what was with the horns and ears we told her was the Dragonkat of the group. Our Cilla gave up her ears and Anne popped them on and wore them through the whole opening ceremony of the Weyrfest panel

Oh, the Tootsie Rolls!!! I don't have any pictures from my visit, but I remember asking what sort of things she liked and Cheryl said, among other things, Tootsie Rolls and Fig Newtons! We lugged those all over Ireland (our visit with Anne was toward the end of the trip) and both Anne's and Gigi's eyes lit up when we pulled them out! They were going through the Tootsie Rolls the whole time we were there.

Mom made the mistake of mentioning that Gigi had said we could only stay about an hour so we wouldn't tire her out, and Anne got this look... She pulled out a gym whistle and gave a blast, then when Gigi came in she told her to show us around the house. (This was when Anne was recovering from knee surgery, I think - Jan. 2010 - so she couldn't get around too well.)

And then I got up the nerve to ask if I could sing her my version of the Question Song, which really was amazing. Both Mom and Gigi said it was almost spooky seeing the connection taking place. I also sang her my version of the Fire Lizard Song.

I'm so glad I was able to get that trip in while there was still a chance to meet her!

Wow, Brenda, you never told that before. Sounds like a great visit (and exactly the Anne we came to know and love ) and I am SO happy for you, and proud (if I may say so) that you got to sing those songs for her! I think that is just wonderful!

Maybe you misunderstood or I wasn't clear. I read about your trip, you must have told us about in here too? If you also told about you singing for Anne, then it is my memory is toweringly faulty... because it was that I was reacting to.

I checked, and it is in that thread... I think maybe I didn't have a thread in here.

Here is my favourite picture of Anne (with me). It was taken in 2003 when she visited the Royal Observatory Edinburgh with astronaut Pam Melroy.

And here is the more formal picture from that same event.

Thanks to Anne, I have a map that was flown on the space shuttle.

OK, some of my photos, most of which haven't been online before.

The first time I stayed at Dragonhold, ow ten years ago in 2002, was together with Cheyl and Anneli. Anne took us out to dinner in Greystones, sounds familiar, doesn't it Her erstwhile cook and her boyfriend were also invited because Anne thought it a good idea to treat her cook, who always made her dinner, to a dinner Alec, at that time the webmaster also joined us. The cook's boyfriend (Daraigh) took the picture.
Left: Cheryl, me and Anne and right the cook (who'se name I forgot), Alec and Anneli.

During that first, 2002 visit, Anne took us on a hair raising car ride (everybody who has ever been ina car together with Anne with her behind the wheel knows what I am talking about) in the surrounding area. Here's a shot taken in the car. Anneli was in the front seat, discussinf opera with Anne and I didn't envy her the spot in front, I was the lucky guy in the backseat



Among many places Anne took us to and showed us Powerscourt. Only a few years later, during another viti, I was able to revisit and stroll through the extensive gardens. When Anne took us there the weather was unkind but we had a great lunch there. This was before Anne's hip surgery and she had a very distinctive gait. Left to right: Cheryl, Anne, Anneli.

Here's part of Anne's own library. I guess these were mostly book given to her by publishers. She had a great library with, of course, much SF.

What I, as an archivist enjoyed most was the license to roam the attic for any material I thought worthy of photographing or registering. All the times I've stayed at Drgaonhold my room was in the attic, next to her stash of her own books



Though a few years later thre had been some leather additions to the bookroom in the attic
