Hi my name is R'na, it's a combination of my parents names Robert and Donna. My real name is Carl. I read Pern so much that in my dreams I impressed a bronze dragon named zoreth. I also love ballroom dancing and music. I'm 34 single and have too much free time.

Too much free time, R'na? Sounds like you could spend it reading and rereading Anne books! Huzzah!

Glad that you could join us. I hope that you'll make new friends, and have a lovely time with us, and, if I may do so, may I recommend just jumping in and having the time of your life?

Everyone has been friendly and kind to me here, so I hope that they will treat you likewise.



Too much free time?
Mend it (in rhyme):

into a mime!

Eccentric is the only way to be. Who wants to talk with a bunch of bores? And of course we're friendly. I'm friendly. Nobody better say I'm not friendly! I've been friendly for years! Who said I'm not friendly?? Never mind. Welcome R'na.

Hi R'na!
I used to live in Phoenix and for a couple years (early 90's) would spend every possible weekend up in Prescott. Friends of mine still live there. I imagine it's bigger now... But as I now live in a place where there are lots of people, I still find very few Pern or Sci-Fi/Fantasy fans.
So be assured, you will have a great place here to feel at home!

Welcome, R'na. I, too, am a dancer (of sorts). We have a dance program at the college I work. I take a class every semester. I usually take the performance which allows me to be part of their dance recital each year. I have done jazz, ballet, modern and one year we did ballroom (lindy and foxtrot). I just love it. What a thrill to dance on stage with hundreds of people watching. Anyway, welcome aboard.

Welcome to MoM everyone. I am Bonnie Jean, my freinds call me Mender. I have 5 kids and 2 granddaughters. I am 36 going on 60 and I love to read.

My PC went down again. (ugh) It gave me some time to read Orson Scott Cards Homecoming series. It would have been great but I have been spoiled with Anne's writing style lately. If these Pc problems continue I'll have time to read Brian Jacques entire Redwall series! (no time for 18 books) I wasn't going to read anything except McCaffrey Quest books if my Pc stays up long enough to do the quest. after that perhaps Harry Potter. Anne says its one of her favorites so I will give it a try.

Howdy. I just decided to join MoM though I was on the OKT and NKT and PF. I went by AidansMom but figure Susan is good enough since it is my given name.

I have three children: Kaitlyn (12), Rowan (10), and Aidan Parker (8). I've just had gastric bypass (22 days ago), so I'm not going to post a picture of me as my avatar until I'm closer to my goal weight.
