Default Just landed........here!!!! :)

Hi, to all.

My name is Albertus, and I just wanted to say hello to everyone here.

I read the Pern books and some of Anne's other books a long time ago (I am old now...so forgive me if I have 'Senior Moment's' when it comes to details....lol)

So, I was lucky, and met this very beautiful Blue Dragon, and she revived my interest in Anne's works, and told me about this forum.

I live in the UK, and like all forms of SF. I draw a little, play the guitar and like to laugh....(sometimes for no reason at all....Makes a note "remember to take the medication"...lol)

I look forward to meeting you all, eventually, and hope I can contribute to the board in a positive and useful manner.

Gotta go now, two men in white coats want me to put on a very nice jacket with very long sleeves and lots of straps and buckles on it.

Regards

Albertus

Not waving, clearing the cobwebs from my mind..........

I was once given a small metal plaque, made by a Japanese fellow. It read:

Well come to punk party.

So, I say to you:

Well come to Pern party.

Settle in, join in, and have fun. I'd love to hear your thoughts on all things Pern, and lots more.

P.S.: those white jackets are comfy, no? I'm wearing mine right now.

(I guess that makes me soon-to-be Mrs. Albertus, that or he's about to be Mr. Saphirdrache! )
