Wow-thorough report! [In reply to] Can't Post

What a great report and clever use of links! although...as far as I know, I do not have a child as mentioned in the Saturday night Woot Moot portion. Unless by some twist of fate, sil's wife chose the name Taliesin as well? Crazy
It was so nice to meet you and hopefully we will see each other again soon.

That sounds like so much fun [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks for that, Gramma -- please Eru I get to go to one of those eventually!

What a blast, and having your grandson with you must have made it all the more special.

CORRECTION! [In reply to] Can't Post

There's a booboo in the Woot Moot section! I have Taliesin in the report at sil's wife. NOT SO! Although... Mrs. silneldor was there :)

Sorry about that, everyone!


PLEASE let me know if anyone finds anything else! Perfection takes a while, don'tchaknow!

well I didn't notice the mistake either... [In reply to] Can't Post

Like dernwyn, I just thought, 'Oh, I didn't know Mrs Sil had a nick!!' So I wouldn't have been much help as a proof reader...!! Crazy

Well, dernwyn, gramma's like JRRT. [In reply to] Can't Post

The story is just too shortUnsure..Sly.
We tried to come up with a couple of nic's but nothing took.
LaughLooking at this picture, i think this where my son is trying to convince his mother to ride to the top floor and lean over and look down. My son is a persistent 'rallyer' for such escapades. (I know our 'kids' ran down 17? flights of stairs when the elevator took too long)I went up later and looked down and i got the woobee'sCrazy.
My mouth dropped gramma when i saw all that you did. No, there is no half way with youLaugh. An amazing job and also i wonder where you find the time. Do you not sleep or do you get away with murder at workSly. I am still trying to get through it all and not miss anything. 3rd go tonight. Thank you so much for your love for ALL of us. [[[[[HUG]]]]].

"Tolkien, like Lewis, believed that, through story, the real world would become a more magical place, full of meaning. We see its patterns and colors in a fresh way. The recovery of a true view of the world applies both to individual things, like hills and stones, and to the cosmic - the depths of space and time itself. For in sub-creation, in Tolkien's view, there is a "survey" of space and time. Reality is captured on a miniature scale. Through stories like The Lord of the Rings, a renewed view of things is given, illuminating the homely, the spiritial, the physical, and the moral dimensions of the world."

May the grace of ManwŰ let us soar with eagle's wings!

In the air, among the clouds in the sky
Here is where the birds of Manwe fly
Looking at the land, and the water that flows
The true beauty of earth shows
With the stars of Varda lighting my way
In all the realms this is where I stay
In the realm of ManwŰ S˙limo

Bwahahaha!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Those boys were a caution, and no mistake! You knew they'd hit it off! Yeah... Paragon got me to go up to the top, too. Teeeeeny Tiiiiiny people down there! We also did the stairs for a bit. I'm still breathing funny from that one!

This thing really wrote itself, but I was anxious to get it done. I'm sending a more subdued version to the homepage (per Calisuri's request ;) This one's got booboos everywhere, though!

Thanks, sil... for everything!

CORRECTIONS AND NEW PIC [In reply to] Can't Post

OMG! We can edit things!!! EXCELLENT!

I've fixed a couple of booboos, and I've changed a picture in our Woot Moot! I inadvertently used the wrong link to a picture of Frodan and White Lady Eowyn that I didn't take... and have replace it with one I did take (apologies to the sibbie I stole the picture from :( It's the link with the picture "Having fun together."

Okie Dokie! See any more booboos? BRING 'EM ON! *rubs hands together*

I believe the first one you posted... [In reply to] Can't Post

was one of mine... I was wondering how come you got a shot which was so similar to one I took! Tongue I had no problem at all with you using it - but YOURS is much cuter! Love that pic of WLE and Frodan - thanks for posting it!

Wow, Gramma - great report! [In reply to] Can't Post

You posted this right before I left on my trip and I've only just now had a chance to read it. Thanks for reviving memories of all the fun that was Dragon*Con! I'm so glad you and Paragon had such a great time!

I feel bad that I didn't get to sign your book. I was about to, and then IIRC we both got distracted talking to other people, and then I had to leave. But I can mail you something to stick in it if you want, if you PM me your snail mail address. Or we can just wait until our next moot, which I hope is soon.

Did I ever mention that I think you rule? :-)
