Amanda and Tabitha and Barbara, (I think); nice talk at the Pavilion; glad you could attend....my son’s class at school started watching the LOTM movie; but had to shut it off as one student mentioned it was an “R” movie and the teach had no permission slips; as if what they would see in the movie would be any different in real life in a big city....
Mary and Rob: what great room-mates! couldn’t have asked for better; MUCH more quiet than we were in the cabin!! (Actually , way too quiet; but what a great couple!)

Glad we had the time in SF; really enjoyed seeing you again in NC. (And really neat cabins.....)
Ann and Bill; great costumes; great attitude; even Bill “hacked and wacked” our way out of the top of the rock; only he didn’t like the hack and whack name; .......but it did the job!
Thanks for bringing together Barby and Bare foot Barret to our last evening....
Stan and Terri: good talking to you before the movie; glad to meet you; (hint; you were to be our roomies; at first, you were: Stan the Man; so you were already famous to us before we met you.......) (Terri, take heart, we are always joking....)
Ros, (Not Roz, as my other friend is called!!) Hey, let’s get Magua next time; !!! I am sure you can swing it!.... Good to see you! Very good!
Mr. Hawkins, what would we do without you and your period costume, or as Mary always wanted to ask: what do we call these guys: re-inactors; period actors; etc. Glad to meet and greet you agian.
