Hmm, since Effers' passing on has come up I did some exploration in her backlog and you know what? I think she was one of Terry Pratchett's witches!! smiley - magic

For the record, lil, aka Auntie Giggles has prepared
an official h2g2 Post Memorial Page with some very kind
words, some quotes from this thread and a copy of Clive's
picture of Effers:

Nice touch.

Can't say we always (or ever) agreed on things but it's sad that she's gone. One less thread in the hootoo tapestry smiley - rose

Oh. Wow. I've just seen this now.

A complex character, certainly. Hootoo is the poorer without her.

Heard a quote today that made me think of Effers:

"What we do for ourselves dies with us, but what
we do for others lives on."

She'd tear a strip off me for suggesting I could
endorse such 'sentimentalist drivel' and I'd end
up arguing that it is demonstrably true. Then she'd
go off in a huff. The irony that she is now part of
the proof of my argument would be a bitter pill.
