For the first time, I paid an extra $40 and went to the Guest of Honor Banquet at Norwescon. In addition to a sumptuous meal, each guest of honor was introduced, including Bridget Landry, a scientist who worked on the Mars Pathfinder project, and was responsible for our seeing some of the astounding videos sent back from Mars. She went around with a bare midriff. Her picture is below (midriff not included).
Sitting at my table was a couple who brought their fourteen year-old daughter with them. Here was a case of a family having fun together at a convention where they could meet people who share their interests. Aren’t they photogenic?
