Now someone may slap me silly or even FA me for even suggesting this, but I believe, if not the Feste Award, but an additional note or marker or rememberance ought to be put up for DingBatAnnie (Lavona) and her husband Kenny (now assuming DBA's handle as BoxerBoy).

DBA always had good stories and we all know of her unfortunate circumstances. But in light of the Feste Award, I don't recall any activity or occurrence going on at TMF that has brought so many Fools together as a community as DBA and her husband Kenny.

I've got a permanent favorite link to the day we lost her:

Dammit, Kenny. I figured at that time, why is he posting here? Well, I was severely slapped around, because as it seems, WE were their family. In fact many of our Fools went out to visit and help Annie.

During all of this, we'd be sitting at the edge of our chairs getting "nitely reports" from Kenny or even her mother, using DBA's screen:

I dunno. I'm still feeling guilty myself about not getting out to California and visiting her while she was still with us, I had the time.

We'll all miss her. I don't know of Annie's last ACTUAL post (one she wrote herself before she could no longer type or post), but this is one of her typical fun stories. I know, this is well OVER a year old and the Feste Award says this is for activity in the current year. I don't care, damn it, I wish she was around to tell us more:

I'm having a hard time typing this in. Sorry.
