Default My German Helva arrives...

This is my lovely new German Ship Who Sang book. It came to me via the "Boom Express" and it is taking a very special place in my collection. Thank You again Hans, my dear friend, for finding it and sending it to me.

That is a really great cover! There seem to be many covers to that book - so far I like all of them. What a great addition to your already HUGE Ship Who Sang collection!

It was my pleasure, Lady Maelin!

What she does not say, because she doesn't want to brag, is that it is inscribed especially to her by Anne McCaffrey... Something I just guessed she would appreciate

Hans, I wasn't sure if I should put up the picture of Anne inscription or not...but since you have spilled the beans...I think I can do a little braging now.

THANK YOU HANS..for asking Anne to sign this to me.
