Time to come clean and say "Hello!" I suppose *g*

The name Thom - alright Thomas - but I have a long standing nickname from another site where they reduced it to Thom, and it's become habit by now!

It's nice to meet you all!

G'day Thom! And welcome indeed!

I hope that you will share your enjoyment of Anne with us, and will have fun too.

BTW: there are two Thoms I admire very much--Thom Gunn (http://www.interviews-with-poets.com...gunn-note.html), the poet, and Thom Yorke (of course).

Welcome, Bookworm, and may I have the pleasure of saying:

Welcome to MoM, and
stay here a while, planned
maybe or not, sand
may get tracked from the writing trays
from all the poemlets I write in a daze
whenever I'm never alying to laze
on such a lovely morning.

Hi I am Saylea( in RL called maria) I have always loved Anne McCaffrey's books Ive been reading them since I was in about seventh grade. My best friend introduced me to the Pern series and when I went home to tell my father about them he motioned to the book shelf and said they're right here. I began reading them that day. Ive also read the Crystal Singer series, Talent series, and Freedom's series.
Currently I live at Kadena Air Base in Okinowa. I am an Airman First Class in the Air Force and work in aircraft maintence. I love writing stories and have several currently started and one finished. All thats left is to finish typing it.
This is the first Pern site Ive ever joined. I have always looked at the various ones but never had the time to be online. But now I do so here its goes

G'day Saylea

this is to say
I hope you will stay
and share with us plenty of good times
as termites might hope
forego thee thy rope
and nibble through plenty of wood times.

If that sounds bizarre to you, to you,
I hope that this zebra will too, will too!

She did post a poem in the Pern forum, which I moved. Nothing to worry about Saylea, moving stray posts is simple.

Ah, see Saylea, staff is here to help you and you do not need to apologize for doing something wrong, especially not when you are new

Unlike some other forumboards I know we're pretty relaxed and easy going here.
