good to hear from you. I was Leslie Mardis, strawberry blonde hair, friends
with Glen,Bonnie, Bernie, Tasha. You and I used to talk alot.
What happened with the group. I know Glen and Bonnie were divorcing when I
left in 1976. I married Patrick Maloney, also a member, and I know they had a
picnic after that. Bernie started the Phantasie Society for awhile. We saw
people off and on when we return to Calif. Pat was in the Navy. I am now
I joined the sociiety in Feb 1969 with my friends Dawn Morris, Linda McGee,
and Anne Woods. I have photos of you from old yulemoots where we are talking.
You might think of me as a hobbit, because I was pretty well known for coming
to the 69 Bilbo -Frodo picnic as a Tim Kirk Hobbit with Shoes (from a drawing
by Tim). I dated alot of guys in the group: Chris Barzak, Alpajpuri(Paul
Novitski) and Chris Mitchell among some.
It is good to pick up on old friends. Its been a long long time. I have
traveled all over the US, have 2 kids, Brennan 21 married with baby due in
April, and Sean , 18 and aspiring writer.
Say Hi to anyone you know.
Oh, I was mostly San Fernando. Do explain he Paula Sigmon thing.

wonderful phrases. Actually, I was talking about Martin in the quote,
though I did refer to Goodkind earlier. He's only a cut above Robert
Jordan---not that great.
