Twenty years ago, I met all of you. Well, not all of you at once but some of you. Alyjude is the one that talked me into joining in on the fun. Boy am I glad I listened. I've made so many friends. One of the friends, I have become very close to and we travel every year together. Lisa, Duncan's Twin has been the best of friends to me. But all of the people on my flist are what keep me going every week, every day and every year. I used to be lonely and shy, you helped me get over that. I became happy and outgoing all because of you. Thank you for doing that for me. I love my life now.
Love and hugs,

My important moment in fandom was when I was asked to write for the ezine called My Mongoose. No one had ever asked for my work and I was both pleased and excited. I was thrilled also when Lisa, Duncan's Twin asked for help on running the ezine. ANd then I was asked to be co-mod on The Sentinel Big Bang. I stay very busy and love every minute.
Now she is reading her book for her upcoming book report. She has learning disabilities, but she's overcoming them quite well. She's still behind, but continues to love reading anyway. Today she is reading Middle School, the Worst Years of My Life. She said it's good so far. She starts middle school next year.
I hope everyone is having a great week. So far ours is super.
