If you really want to see how I interact with the universe, here I am in various work and non-work settings. (I still haven't gotten around to doing thumbnail pics for this page, but that's on the "Things to Do" list!)
Here I am relaxing with some of my feathered friends at the Peabody Hotel in Orlando, Florida, in August 1992.
Another photo with more of the same ducks. Yes, they actually do live at the hotel, and are marched to the lobby fountain every morning and back to their habitat every evening.
A typical auction at the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society, Inc.
Another auction photo. In these pictures you can see such LASFS luminaries as Merlin R. "Bob" Null, The Guy With The Sideburns (mundane name Joe Zeff), Mary Ann Canfield, Alex Pournelle, Phil Castora, Barksdale Hales, and June Moffatt.
Lookin' good in my tux! LASFS 60th Anniversary Banquet, October 1994, at the head table along with Mike Glyer and Joyce Sperling.
Another Banquet picture. Which one is sillier? The food was much better than you might think. Thanks to Charlie Lee Jackson, II for organizing the Banquet.
With the Batmobile (1995 vintage) in Century City. I'm the one with the hat.
Looking over Bruce and Elayne Pelz' travel photo album. You can't tell, but I really
having a good time.
With Ray Bradbury and Julie Schwartz at a Loscon, probably in November 1994.
Here's a picture of me wearing a hat I bought on my visit to San Antonio last summer. Doesn't it look absurd?
And for those of you who miss it, here's the passport photo which once graced (?) my home page! Sorry, I don't have a profile shot to go with it.
Banquet, banquet, a different banquet! This one was called the LASFS Retirement Banquet because it observed the club's 65th anniversary, and it took place in October 1999. Here I am with Rebecca Barber. I discovered to my chagrin that my tie looked navy under bright lights, and have since gone out and bought a new one of black silk.
Hef, eat your heart out! Another picture from the same banquet, this time with Mona Lisa Martinez, Joyce Sperling, and Kit Russell. And yes, Joyce became a redhead since the pictures from 1994.
Yet another banquet picture, with me in a tux! I had just managed to lose some weight before this one was taken. The event was a testimonial dinner in Beverly Hills honoring actor/producer Michael Douglas. My dinner companion is the stunning darcee golden (yes, lower case).
Thanks to Dik Daniels, Stan Burns, Chris Marble, Ed Buchman, and Rebecca Barber for the photographs!
