Let the dragons all rejoice
with the harpers with one voice,
and the Talented combine
with young Niffy in their line,
and the crystal singers singing
praises of your name till, ringing
from the rafters of the world,
your praises are a flag unfurled.
Then, with those who dropped, we may,
wish it Ms McCaffrey Day.

Anne!

Oh, my yes, Lady M, that is a beautiful portrait of Anne. I believe you got her eyes better than any photos I've seen of her! What a joy! The colors of the fire lizards are lovely, too! That is just a marvelous picture.

And so -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY , Annie Mac! Thank you so very much, for many, many wonderful characters and stories and adventures and, of course, for the Dragons!!!

With love and great respect ,

Awesome picture as always Lady M...^^ I do believe this is one of the best one's I've seen thus far. I love the way the Green and the Blue are having a staring competition...xD Very cute.

I'd write a short poem, but that's Ghyle's job...xDDD

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANNE!

Well, I just got of the phone, talking to Anne and she sends you all her love and, since I took the liberty to congratulate her not only on my behalf but from all of us here at a Meeting of Minds, she thanks you all.

She was having a busy and tiring day, as can be expected The more so because she also told me she's not long out of hospital, where she had to go to get rid of an (persistent) infection.

She told me she is looking forward very much at attending the convention in Copenhagen (never having been to Copenhagen before) and when I hoped it wouldn't be too hard on her, having to attend Dragon*Con in August and Eurocon in September she said: don't worry, I'll be there (in Copenhagen).

So, I guess I can extend (by proxy) a big

THANK YOU

from Anne!

Oh, I've been a bad girl! I've missed this thread!!! I did send Anne birthday wishes, but oh to have missed the unveiling of Lady Maelin's portrait! It's really a perfect portrait of Anne. Love the smile you gave her, Maelin! It's one to be proud of, in a long line of wonderful works.
Thank you for sharing your talent with us, Maelin!
And happy birthday to Anne too!
