Default STUPID Question

Ok ladies and gents... My mind is foggy and I can't put my finger on it as quickly as you all will be able to help.

What year was Anne born? My husband asked me today how old she was and for the life of me I can't remember!!!

According to Wikipedia, she was born in 1926.

And that wasn't a stupid question; this is:

Yes, next year will be a crown year for Anne who will turn 80 then!

We'll have a feast, a ball in her honour, I'm sure!

Pssst, Kater! You could have just surfed on over to my general McCaffrey site, The Many Works of Anne McCaffrey, where there's a timeline biography of Anne.

Everyone repeat after me: When in search of McCaffrey info, check Cheryl's sites (and Hans's too, of course!).
