Bye, Ann

I had the incredible experience of leading a three day canoe trip on the Chattooga River that included Ann Richards when she was an Austin councilwoman. There were 23 other people on that trip but I don't remember much about the rest of them. She had black hair and drank like a fish, but she was the most charismatic human I've ever been in the presence of...

"Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, "only backwards and in high heels."...Anne Richards
