Elizabeth is a wonderful 9 year old. She and my daughter Shelby, have corresponded by email over the last year or so. She knows a staggering amount about tarantulas, and the show is sure to be AWESOME!
How could I have forgotten to post about it here?!
Bad me!

she's gonna be a STAR!!

Here's a pic of Elizabeth, holding one of my female A. versicolor, this past summer down at a show in Chalmette, LA right outside of New Orleans.
She's a little sweetie, and smart as a whip too. She gave me a G. rosea hatchling, that she actually bred and produced!! It's got a little certificate with it too! It was the cutest thing ever!

I can't wait to see her on Leno! :D

wow, what was i doing when i was 9...?

good for her! hey holley, since the girls are obviously somewhat internet-literate (since they are corresponding online), then maybe you can convince them to come join the group here. :) i'd be interested in hearing what they have to say.

Shelby wants her own account here, just can't figure out how to do that on this computer. I'll have her ask Elizabeth to join here as well.
You get interesting perspectives from children that age!

Great pic Kelly. You know Elizabeth is an awfully cluey young girl, she lectures at various high schools about tarantulas as well (keep in mind she's only 9 yrs old!). She's homeschooled by her mom and she's a close friend of Stephen Hawkings personal assistant, whom she converses with regularly about Hawking's theories. Definately not your average young girl. She hopes to one day be a tarantula systematist and I'm sure she'll succeed.

Everyone, make sure you get to see young Elizabeth in action, you'll be watching one of the hobbies future geniuses at work.

Cheers,
Steve

Hi kellygirl,

I'm Dannye (Steve's wife) and just wanted to let you know Elizabeth and her mom Susan do quite a bit of posting over on the Women's Tarantula Alliance group. If you're interested you can find us here. Granted, it's just girls over there and I'm sure everyone would love to talk to Elizabeth, but for those chicas who might be interested just thought I'd inteject.

Cheers,

Dannye Nunn

LOL I thought i made this forum...see how i am the first post? WHat i think happened is that the moderators saw that there were 2 same threads and just made them into one - notice our first 2 posts would imply that they were the first posts of a thread like this so i think they were merged into one.

As far as I know, the only way to "log out" to have another account log in is to delete all of your cookies. You'll have to do it each time.

Yep, you're right, it's sexist. This is my husband's nic and he enjoys Arachnopets so I'll leave his nic to him. If you would like to harangue me personally about sexism or any other ism, please feel free to e-mail me personally at dinah_damage@yahoo.com

Thanks!
