York City/New Jersey area discussion group), mainly because I
married, changed my name to Dean, and moved to Maryland. (Also
because the group had made it once through The Silmarillion, The
Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings, and I don't think we felt up
to tackling the History of Middle-earth at that point.)
I'm still living in Maryland, in the little old town of Port
Deposit near the mouth of the Susquehanna, with husband Rob and
two sons, Norman and William. Norman just turned sixteen, and
William is twelve. And yeah, I'll be hitting the big five-O in
August of this year.
Good to hear from you! I'm afraid I remember you only vaguely,
mostly the name. Were you getting Romenna reports for a while?
Anyway, yes, I'm still a member (I think? I may need to renew my
actual membership, though I know I'm subscribed to Mythlore) and
a listmember here. Welcome back!
- Wow! Hi Margaret! I'll email you off-list later. I'm on my all-too-brief
lunch break now, from teaching Social Studies to Navajo 6th & 7th graders
at Crownpoint Middle School in New Mexico. Yes, that's quite a career
change from when we knew each other back then. I'll fill you in more later.

- Hi J.Kriss:
I used to be Mrs. GoodKnight. I'm glad you're joining
in again. Hope we can meet in Norman.
the Cair Paravel & Smaug groups attritted
away,(leaving individual members still in touch)
but we still have the Mydgard bunch (small) who
meet in Pasadena/Alhambra, Ca. every month. I'm
presently doing casual liasioning between local
Mythsoc folk and neo fans in 'Tolkien Forever'. We
have some delightful activities. The latter are
developing quite an interest in SCA/Renfair
if you'ld like to reply, feel free.
best, Bonnie Callahan
