I don't know if she was on the flight, but a dancer under her supervision did get a flight to try out the planned choreography. That was always as intended as Jeanne tacitly admitted her dancing days were past... I wonder now how long Spider and Jeanne might have known of her illness.

"Nunnie," as my Bawstun cousins would have said. (I asked what it meant. "Nunnie-ya-fuggin-bidness"...)

Unfortunately true. :/ I'd heard about this a few days ago; should've posted here.

Terri won't ask directly, and she has good health insurance so her family probably isn't facing bankruptcy, but there's a LOT with this sort of diagnosis that insurance simply doesn't cover. So any donations that people can afford to give can go here:

If (like me) you avoid PayPal, you can mail a check here:

gracefulwomanwarrior
PO Box 80055
Dartmouth. MA 02748

I know that they'll appreciate anything that people can spare.

Has Spider Robinson retired? I don't see anything by him on the ISFDB since about 2010. And his website hasn't been updated with anything other than statuses of the illnesses of his family in some time.

Between his own health problems and his family losses, I can understand how writing and publishing might not be what he wants to do, but it would be a shame if he has stopped.

That was entertaining. And yep, I bet Jeanne would have liked it.
