Thank you all! I'm so thrilled to have been given VIP status. But I'm even more pleased by the warm welcome I've been given here. If the established contributors had not responded so positivelyand really bent over backwards to answer and welcome a "newbie", I'm sure I wouldn't have stuck around. So thank you all.
And now, as I've noticed that some contributors sign their posts with a name as well as a screenname, I should point out that I'm actually Mrs. fredhashway. Fred's username was long established with LL because he does most of the bidding for us and we share the account. But I do all of the posting. So rather than confuse anyone if a post "sounds female", I'll try to remember to sign my name as well.
Congratulations new VIPs! And FredHashaway, thanks for clarifying. Not that any of your posts have sounded like one gender or another, but it's nice to be able to get a little better sense of who you are.....with a name like Fred, yes I immediately assumed you were a man! Please continue your fantastic posts!
Congratulations to marolyn, funtimes and fredhashway, our three newest VIP Contributors. Also some "at-a-boys" are in order to all the previous VIP Contributors, for hanging in there and ther consistent good work. As the LL Community grows, we hope to see more of the LL Contribuots join the ranks of VIP Contributors... keep up the good work.
marolyn,funtimes, fredhashway & returning VIP Contributors...congratulations on your appointments and reappointments! We are pleased to see the growth of the community and the quality of theideas and experiencesso many have shared. We are presently working on a holiday trip through LL and we intend to do some things as a direct result of information we gatheredthrough the posts overpast few months.
Goes to show you that whether you're female or male, it's what you do and say that really counts. Although I must say that while you and I have been trading posts over the past several weeks, especially about baseball (the Red Sox and the Blue Jays) and many other intriguing subjects, I had envisioned what you might look like and had a definitely hirsute picture of "Fred" in my mind. Now, that I know you're Jenna, his wife, my subconscious will likely alter that image somewhat drastically and morph it into a more feminine one. It'd be great to actually meet the both of you in person, along with the other 13 current VIP Contributors at the Pierre Hotel in New York at the up-coming VIPReception and Dinner, in order to finally see what everyone looks like. What a blast that will be!
