Excellent pics, Mark! Mary is lovely and looks as thrilled as I'd look getting to meet Joe. :)

I have yet to hear that he's anything but warm, gracious and generally cool.

How long did Maru have to wait? Did she make any new friends? People are so nice while waiting in line to meet an author. :) (Generally...)

Joe, you sure have your mother's eyes.
And your father's hair. :P

YOu know, she talked about this one guy that was actually trying to break in line......lol...and was then asking her if she was going to sell the stuff that she had(she looked at him like he was crazy, and said no, of course not).....but, the people that was helping joe(volunteers) was actually quite nice...she was in the first 20 that was in line...she was also one of the first people to get to come around and take a picture with Joe(he made her feel like a superstar....lol) Mary has met some "famous" people before, and she said that Joe was by far the nicest she has ever met..she talked about how he stoped while signing to make eye contact and everything...i cant wait to met Joe at comi-con.....oh by the way..Orson scott card was also extremely nice to us at last years comic-con...

he was SO sweet signing all ~24 books i had. poor guy, he got done and we were chatting a bit, and suddenly he bopped out of his chair and said, "oh yeah. where's the restroom?" LOL, poor guy was probably dying, but he stuck it out.

ya know, those who haven't seen him IRL...the pictures don't do him justice...he's MUCH better looking in person, and i think some of that perception is because his nice personality shows through...nice people always are better-looking than mean people. if that makes sense.

And your father's hair.


and beard. :D having met both tabby and stephen in person, i was just fascinated to see the different qualities of each that he inherited.

thanks for the pix, mark. mary has the loveliest smile, very pretty. i certainly understand how she felt after meeting him!
