The armless lady...
« on: May 25, 2015, 12:16:04 »

There's a good chance that most of you attending CFz2015 would have spotted a lady with no arms in either the restaurant, bar or lobby areas, but how many of you actually took the time to speak to her?

This woman had come all the way from South Wales to help her 19yo son (who was just starting out in the fandom) to get over his shyness and meet other furs (best parent ever?), I took a couple of minutes of my day just to have a quick natter with her and I'm glad I did. She turned out to be a hell of a character, funny, strong-willed and didn't let anything in life hold her back. By her accounts it sounds like there were some quite rude folk there (either blanking her or telling her to go away) but mostly people were friendly and accepting.

I ended up speaking with her a number of times over the course of my Sat / Sun visit and she actually gave me a really useful home remedy for my sprained foot (few of you probably noticed me limping around the lobby like a boss), so if you (or your son) are reading this, thank you, I can actually bear weight on my foot again without shooting pain :)

Anyone else got any stories of this remarkable woman?

I sat with them at the 1st fureoke - best conversation I've had in ages :)
Delusions of grandeur?  I'm better than that!

Sorry, I must have missed her.
