    Zen rezzed a giant willow in the pavilion that ended hovering over the pavilion as he tried to take it when leaving

    Alfred Kelberry: oui :)
    Eden Haiku: hello Alfred :))
    Alfred Kelberry: eden the poetic cutie :)
    Eden Haiku: Oui :))
    Alfred Kelberry: wuff!
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Eden Haiku: It's very quiet this morning Alfred.
    Alfred Kelberry: your dress nicely matches the lilies :)
    Eden Haiku: We can have a nice quiet conversation. Time for you to confide maybe?
    Eden Haiku: A puppy must have so many secrets:))
    Alfred Kelberry: as we all do :)
    Eden Haiku: hehe
    Alfred Kelberry: wait, a snow?
    Eden Haiku: lilies are lavender flowers. Thanks for noticing they match my outfit.
    Alfred Kelberry: odd :)
    Eden Haiku: Yes, I know, it's been snowing for a while. It's odd, yes...
    Alfred Kelberry: but cute :)
    Eden Haiku: wonders if the snow is connected to the grass :))
    Alfred Kelberry: i like various oddities :)
    Eden Haiku: I do too!
    Eden Haiku: Hi Bleu!
    Alfred Kelberry: bleu!
    Alfred Kelberry: wuff!
    Bleu Oleander: hi Eden, boxy
    Eden Haiku: Was that boxy barking or your RL puppy Bleu?
    Bleu Oleander: snow?
    Alfred Kelberry: hehe
    Bleu Oleander: must be boxy
    Alfred Kelberry: :P
    Eden Haiku: Yes, it is snowing. Maybe it's flower petals?
    Eden Haiku: Cherry blossoms snowing?
    Bleu Oleander: how are you both?
    Eden Haiku: It seemed to materialize when I commanded the grass...
    Alfred Kelberry: i'm good :)

    Alfred asks a question

    Alfred Kelberry: a question: how many friends you have?
    Bleu Oleander: in sl?
    Alfred Kelberry: anywhere
    Eden Haiku: A profound question Alf. Thinking....
    Bleu Oleander: lots
    Bleu Oleander: can I count you?
    Alfred Kelberry: only you can answer :)
    Alfred Kelberry: zen-san


    Bleu Oleander: I'll count you :)
    Alfred Kelberry: thank you :)
    Zen Arado: Hi Eden, Bleu, Alf
    Bleu Oleander: that's an interesting question .... does friendship need to be counted both ways?
    Eden Haiku: In RL, a really close friend and then two other close friends (not as close). Then lots of friends but further. My best friend lives in Paris so I don't see her that often :) In SL, I count the three of you as dear friends :))
    Zen Arado: aw
    Eden Haiku: hello Zen :))
    Bleu Oleander: me too Eden, nice :)
    Eden Haiku: What about you Alfred, do you have many friends?
    Alfred Kelberry: no
    Zen Arado: how many is many?
    Eden Haiku: I'm glad to be among your friends :)
    Zen Arado: too many and they aren't close
    Bleu Oleander: few close ones and many not so close
    Eden Haiku: Yes, Zen. With friendship comes responsibility.
    Bleu Oleander: friendships take time
    Zen Arado: yep and take up your time
    Eden Haiku: It does take time.
    Bleu Oleander: so many friends ... so little time
    Bleu Oleander: hi Riddle


    As Riddle comes in, Alfred hallucinates a cute elephant, as always:-): then he sees a tree. This time, it's no hallucination: Zen did rezz a giant willow tree!

    Alfred Kelberry: cute elephant :)
    Zen Arado: Hi Riddle :)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi little boxy dog
    Alfred Kelberry: wuff!
    Eden Haiku: Good morning Riddle! We have been talking about friendship. A topic Alfred introduced.
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Eden, blu, zen
    Bleu Oleander: the snow is confusing my brain .... it's sunny and 90's here
    Zen Arado: naughty
    Zen Arado: it's 12 C here
    Alfred Kelberry: oh nooes...
    Alfred Kelberry: grass is gone
    Alfred Kelberry: yay! :)
    Alfred Kelberry: it's back
    Riddle Sideways: so the mind is wired that way?
    Eden Haiku: Was trying to see if the snow came with the grass but apparently no...
    Riddle Sideways: boxy dog, man's best friend
    Bleu Oleander: hey Aggers
    Agatha Macbeth: Greetings :)
    Alfred Kelberry: aga girl :)
    Eden Haiku: Hello Agatha! How nice to see you!
    Zen Arado: must be a weather generator somewhere
    Zen Arado: Hi Aga :)
    Alfred Kelberry: not so quiet now, eden :)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi agger s
    Agatha Macbeth: This place is starting to look like a horticultural centre
    Eden Haiku: Will have to wait to hear all your secrets Alfred :)
    Agatha Macbeth gets out the lawnmower
    Eden Haiku: hehe, my fresh lavender, please don't!
    Alfred Kelberry: *tickles aga*
    Agatha Macbeth giggles
    Alfred Kelberry: do you have many friends, aga?
    Agatha Macbeth: Yeah, millions :p
    Alfred Kelberry: nice
    Eden Haiku: Alfred brought a topic this morning: a very interesting one: friendship.
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, nice
    Alfred Kelberry: a tree!
    Agatha Macbeth: Is Fox here?
    Alfred Kelberry: i love it
    Agatha Macbeth: Me too
    Riddle Sideways notes that alf runs quickly to the tree
    Zen Arado: it's agiant willow
    Zen Arado: too big for my property
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Agiant Willow
    Eden Haiku: Beautiful tree Zen.
    Alfred Kelberry: it has a retreat feeling now :)

    Eden asks a question

    Eden Haiku: is this willow a weeping willow?
    Agatha Macbeth: It has a 'I can't see anything' feel to me...
    Zen Arado: it's a happy willow
    Bleu Oleander: hehe
    Alfred Kelberry: you have to be happy to see it
    Eden Haiku: Did any of you ever see a dryad, an leprechaun or any of these "invisible" creatures?
    Riddle Sideways: willows "sway" so nicely in the wind
    Alfred Kelberry: no
    Alfred Kelberry: they are invisible for a reason, i guess :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh yeah, several
    Riddle Sideways: maybe have
    Eden Haiku: They do Riddle, especially in the spring, when the branches are such a tender green, they sway beautifully!
    Eden Haiku: tell us more Agatha?
    Agatha Macbeth: More about what, sorry?
    Alfred Kelberry: dryads
    Eden Haiku: About the dryads you saw?
    Agatha Macbeth: Tree spirits ( I think)
    Eden Haiku: Yes,
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh you meet quite a few in SL
    Agatha Macbeth: Depends where you go
    Eden Haiku: I meant in RL though :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Along with with faes, nymphs, elves etc
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh in RL
    Agatha Macbeth: That would be silly :p
    Zen Arado: how many prims has the tree?
    Eden Haiku: Ah yes, in here all these worlds come alive :)
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Agatha Macbeth: Indeed
    Riddle Sideways: being able to see them includes friendship. you must be a friend before even trying to see
    Bleu Oleander: http://dryad.stanford.edu/
    Alfred Kelberry: 2
    Agatha Macbeth offers a tree friendship
    Alfred Kelberry: stormy
    Bleu Oleander: hi Storm
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Stormy




    Storm Nordwind: Hi everyone
    Eden Haiku: Hello Storm :) We have been talking about friendship and dryads.
    Zen Arado: yeh amazing I think
    Zen Arado: Hi Storm :)
    Agatha Macbeth: You must be the branch manager :o
    Riddle Sideways: morning Storm
    Agatha Macbeth: I'm in a loony mood today
    Bleu Oleander: "branch manager" hehe
    Zen Arado: the tree surgeon
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: stormy, how many friends you have?
    Storm Nordwind: In SL?
    Alfred Kelberry: anywhere
    Storm Nordwind: What do you define as a friend?
    Alfred Kelberry: you do :)
    Eden Haiku: loves Agathita loony moods :)))
    Agatha Macbeth: It's evidently a broad subject Storm :p
    Bleu Oleander: how are your sl friends different from your rl friends?
    Alfred Kelberry: i can't define it for you
    Agatha Macbeth: Virtual?
    Storm Nordwind: I didn't have a real RL friend till I was 44, that much I do know.
    Agatha Macbeth: OMG
    Alfred Kelberry: can you tell more?
    Eden Haiku: Really ? How interesting...
    Storm Nordwind: Of course I THOUGHT I did. Until I found a real friend.
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Alfred Kelberry: yes...
    Eden Haiku: real friends are rare and precious yes.
    Agatha Macbeth agrees
    Alfred Kelberry: *gives stormy a warm pat on his back*
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Eden Haiku: (((Storm)))
    Storm Nordwind: Most of my friends have either been female, except for one or two gay couples
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Storm Nordwind: Recently it has changed a little
    Storm Nordwind: I blame PaB ;-)
    Eden Haiku: hehe
    Agatha Macbeth: Yeah, that's PaB for you :]
    Riddle Sideways: (((Storm)))
    Riddle Sideways: (((PaB)))
    Alfred Kelberry: i think it's more preferable than the opposite in your case :)
    Agatha Macbeth: (((everyone)))
    Eden Haiku: strange sentence Boxy...
    Alfred Kelberry: a practical one, eden :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe it's Russian? ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth gets out the vodka
    Eden Haiku: Is Boxy really Russian? The question has been haunting me...(((Alfred)))
    Alfred Kelberry: *sips tea*
    Riddle Sideways: does it matter?
    Alfred Kelberry: apparently
    Agatha Macbeth: Not really
    Bleu Oleander: what does matter?
    Eden Haiku: drinks water to wash down yesterday's Cahors wine :)
    Storm Nordwind gets out the superior Mongolian vodka
    Agatha Macbeth: Woohoooooo
    Agatha Macbeth: Come back Genghis Khan
    Bleu Oleander holds out her glass
    Agatha Macbeth: or don't on second thoughts
    Eden Haiku: picturing Agatha in Mongolian steps with a bottle of vodka, drinking as she rides her pure breed horse...
    Riddle Sideways: friendship has many meanings. levels/degrees of friends
    Agatha Macbeth: Yay! Me too
    Eden Haiku: Yes Riddle. What did you mean earlier by "maybe have" about seeing dryads and elves?

    Riddle's bunny slippers

    Riddle Sideways just noticed that ya'll are such good friend to not mention the bunny slippers
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: What bunny slippers?
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Eden Haiku: The ones he's wearing (just noticing now)
    Storm Nordwind: We just don't look at people's feet
    Alfred Kelberry: aga has nice boots :)
    Eden Haiku: I suppose you are on Easter Monday holiday Riddle?
    Agatha Macbeth: And hopefully don't smell them either...
    Bleu Oleander: take a lap around the fountain Riddle

    Agatha Macbeth: Aw, nice edie :)
    Alfred Kelberry: *shows off his paws*
    Zen Arado: 'Under the spreading greenwood tree , the village smithy stands'
    Agatha Macbeth: You can see mine better sitting down
    Bleu Oleander: what happened to the bunnies?
    Eden Haiku: You took the bunny slippers off Riddle?
    Alfred Kelberry: zen :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Damn skirt gets in the way
    Bleu Oleander: (like a 7th inning stretch)
    Alfred Kelberry: the tree looks really lovely here

    Zen Arado: yeh Riddle :)
    Eden Haiku: Maxine is not a friend and I do not know her very well, but I feel just like she's a friend. She's such a friendly person, isn't she? So loving.
    Alfred Kelberry: yes
    Eden Haiku: Any of you going to the Seattle retreat on Vashon Island Maxine is organizing?
    Riddle Sideways: would dearly like to
    Bleu Oleander: not sure yet
    Zen Arado: sits quietly
    Agatha Macbeth: Apparently it's a misprint it IS tomorrow
    Riddle Sideways: Amtrak has a sleeper train that goes right there
    Eden Haiku: We are Monday Agatha. Tomorrow is Tuesday.
    Zen Arado: I am going to a zen retreat tomorrow - if I can get a lift there
    Eden Haiku: Oh Zen, I read you had been at Samye Ling lately? I have been there, many years ago.
    Zen Arado: oh?
    Eden Haiku: This is such a small world :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, the Scottish yaks
    Zen Arado: I am writing a piece about it on my blog
    Zen Arado: with short video clips
    Eden Haiku: Yes, that was back in 1978, just a house by then. Now, it's a big place, I saw the links you posted.
    Zen Arado: went to see Ringu Tulku
    Eden Haiku: Do we have a link to your blog Zen?
    Zen Arado: yeh they are always building
    Zen Arado: yeh but I only got one video on it so far
    Eden Haiku: Would love to read more about your experience.
    Zen Arado: http://johnhtaylor.wordpress.com/
    Eden Haiku: Ah, thanks Zen.
    Zen Arado: takes ages to upload videos
    Eden Haiku: And Bleu, thanks for the link to Drya you posted earlier. Will explore :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Hair Drya
    Eden Haiku: *Dryad
    Bleu Oleander: yw Eden :)

    Eden asks her question again

    Eden Haiku: Storm, dar friend, have you ever seen a dryad, an elf or a leprechaun (in RL) ?
    Agatha Macbeth: 'Nymphs and shepherds come away'
    Eden Haiku: *dear
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh dar
    Storm Nordwind: Sure I have


    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Eden Haiku: loony Aggers :)))
    Agatha Macbeth: Yep :)))
    Eden Haiku: Stepping onto silence to plead for more about dryads from Storm...
    Bleu Oleander: well, friends :), have to go .... take care all
    Storm Nordwind waves
    Eden Haiku: Bye Bleu :)))
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye sweet Bleu :)
    Zen Arado: bye Bleu
    Riddle Sideways: take care blu
    Eden Haiku: I'm very curious about these beings we might see in the parallel worlds close to us...
    Storm Nordwind: Just because I see them and converse with them (if they choose), doesn't mean anyone else can and that I'm not just simply mad! ;->>
    Eden Haiku: Trying to under
    Eden Haiku: understand this last sentence...
    Agatha Macbeth: Different being, different wavelengths
    Riddle Sideways: understood storm
    Eden Haiku: I know I had this ability as a child and recovered some as an adult, just a few glimpses.
    Eden Haiku: Yes, wavelenghts Agatha.
    Zen Arado: listens with open mind
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh I saw some pretty funny things as a kid
    Riddle Sideways: had ability in mid 20-30
    Eden Haiku: Read this funny poem by Sylvia Plath this morning: "On the Difficulty of Conjuring Up a Dryad"
    Agatha Macbeth: I don't usually associate Sylvia Plath with 'funny' :p
    Agatha Macbeth: Deranged, yes
    Eden Haiku: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bL_yMbOTd8o
    Eden Haiku: She reads it herself on YouTube
    Storm Nordwind winces at the idea of conjuring up any being if they don't particularly want to be!
    Zen Arado: doesn't know what a dryad is
    Eden Haiku: It's a tree spirit Zen .
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Eden Haiku: A being that lives in the forest
    Zen Arado: wonder if there are any in SL?
    Eden Haiku: In Greek mythology
    Agatha Macbeth: A friend of the Green Man


    Eden tries to explain her curiosity about dryads

    Eden Haiku: I'm writing about an episode when I was two years old and by myself in the woods.
    Agatha Macbeth: O.O
    Zen Arado: 'cold vision will have no counterfeit palmed off on it'
    Agatha Macbeth: Right, Zen
    Eden Haiku: I was escaping, on my way to see the angels as there was a road called "Montee des Anges" on the other side of the woods.
    Agatha Macbeth listens
    Eden Haiku: Never saw the angels, but it seems I'm recovering a memory about dryads.
    Agatha Macbeth: Yay
    Eden Haiku: Weeping around fallen trees. There had been a tempest the day before.
    Agatha Macbeth: Aww
    Eden Haiku: And as I'm writing, it's all wrapped into anguish.
    Eden Haiku: That's why I'm so curious about your experiences with these "invisible" beings.
    Eden Haiku: If any :)
    Storm Nordwind notes that there is often a discrepancy between what actually exists, and the romantic vision of writers who know what they would LIKE to exist!


    Agatha Macbeth: Sadly yes, storm
    Agatha Macbeth: There seems to be always a great deal of subjectivity in this kind of thing. Along the same lines as UFO abductions/sightings
    Eden Haiku: shutting up
    Agatha Macbeth: No, don't shut up!
    Agatha Macbeth: Carry on :)
    Eden Haiku: almost crying
    Zen Arado: it's interesting
    Agatha Macbeth hugs Edie
    Riddle Sideways: as Storm said what you may see/tell may not be received by others
    Zen Arado: intriguing
    Eden Haiku: why do you say so so harshly Storm?
    Agatha Macbeth nods @ Rid
    Storm Nordwind: I'm not harsh. I'm just a pragmatist. I see what I see. I hear what I hear.
    Agatha Macbeth: Aw, Stormy's bark is worse than his bite [winks]
    Zen Arado: maybe only certain people CAN see it
    Alfred Kelberry: wuff!
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes Zen, exactly
    Eden Haiku: You are lucky to never be confused. I'm always wandering in a forest of confusion.
    Zen Arado: the rest just dismiss
    Eden Haiku: Never sure of what I see, never sure of what I hear.
    Storm Nordwind: Perhaps. But It can be developed Zen. As any latent ability.
    Agatha Macbeth: Life IS confusing Edie
    Agatha Macbeth: And confusing
    Agatha Macbeth: :p
    Zen Arado: and subjective
    Agatha Macbeth: That too

    Asking permission?

    Storm Nordwind: One thing is important, in my view...
    Zen Arado: it's all sunjective
    Zen Arado: subjective*
    Agatha Macbeth: God, none of us can spell today
    Storm Nordwind: when dealing with anyone, in any realm, I believe it's important to get their active permission and cooperation
    Zen Arado: I can spell...just can't type :)
    Agatha Macbeth: :DDDDDD
    Zen Arado: it's the right letters....but not necessarily in the right order....
    Agatha Macbeth: Thanks Eric :p
    Eden Haiku: when a child of two, you think you need to ask permission to a dryad when you are desperate and lost in the woods?
    Zen Arado: releases Aga's lopels
    Zen Arado: lapels?
    Agatha Macbeth: Leave my lopels alone! :D
    Agatha Macbeth: And what have you done with your nose?
    Zen Arado: more realistic nose
    Storm Nordwind: For example, if I wanted to write about someone's personal life, I would ask them what they thought about it first and respect their wishes. With beings in other realms, i think it's the same. If people don't ask permission, and ask what the being would like to have said about them, I think it's unlikely that future cooperation will be forthcoming.
    Agatha Macbeth: Were you lost then, edie?
    Zen Arado: Hi Sun:)
    Storm Nordwind: Hi Sun!
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi all ;)
    Eden Haiku: Yes Aga, I was.
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Sun :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Aww
    Sunshine Vayandar: meep!
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Sun
    Agatha Macbeth: How did you find your way out again?
    Eden Haiku: Hello (((Sunshine))) happy to see you ;)
    Zen Arado: sounds frightening Eden
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Eden ;)) great to see you too - nice to see all ;)
    Eden Haiku: He found me Aga. The one I was escaping.
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Eden Haiku: It was.
    Zen Arado: especially for a child
    Storm Nordwind doesn't understand Eden's story and apologizes for upsetting anyone. He just tries to answer questions and speaks from very long and extensive experience.
    Eden Haiku: It's a difficult scene to write about.
    Zen Arado: but we only seem to see such things as children
    Eden Haiku: Yes, I understand Storm.
    Zen Arado: adult minds become closed and skeptical
    Agatha Macbeth: Please don't distress yourself Edie
    Agatha Macbeth: Always another time...
    Eden Haiku: I'm fine Agatha, even though I'm crying.
    Sunshine Vayandar hopes Edie is ok .... not sure what the chat was about ...
    Agatha Macbeth: Well, I do that all the time, so I know...
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Eden Haiku: I woke up at 6 this morning and decided I was going to write about it, even if it's really difficult.
    Eden Haiku: And the dryads came up.
    Agatha Macbeth: Writing about it will be the best way to release it
    Zen Arado: sounds like even thinking about it is distressing
    Eden Haiku: Oh, don't worry Sunshine.
    Agatha Macbeth: Even if you only write about it for yourself


    A typo wizard conjured up our dear (((Sunshine))) who is bringing the wonderdul PaB "mangas" she's been working on


    Looking at Sun's PaB mangas.jpg

    Sun is showing us the illustrated PaB story she's been working on: Agatha will come up with the term 'manga' 

    Riddle Sideways wondering if "[08:19] Zen (zen.arado): it's all sunjective" misspeeling brought Sun here?
    Eden Haiku: We have been talking about friendship
    Sunshine Vayandar sends a hug to Eden
    Zen Arado: writing is good therapy
    Agatha Macbeth smiles @ Rid
    Agatha Macbeth: Agreed, Zen
    Eden Haiku: and about dryads,
    Zen Arado: he he Riddle
    Eden Haiku: The thing is I'm not writing for myself.
    Agatha Macbeth: Just synchronicity probably
    Zen Arado: Sunchronicity
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Agatha Macbeth laughs
    Eden Haiku: laughing at "sunjective" typo that conjured up Sunshine :))


    Zen Arado: I'm a typo wizard :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Or something
    Eden Haiku: You are (((Zen)))
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;))
    Riddle Sideways: was thinking conjuring works that way
    Riddle Sideways: was thinking "having to write it out" works that way
    Sunshine Vayandar: I just wrote a story today ... may be you recognize it ;)
    Eden Haiku: works Riddle?
    Sunshine Vayandar: ops sorry Storm ;)
    Agatha Macbeth: Wow
    Sunshine Vayandar: I am busy helping Adams
    Sunshine Vayandar: with the birthday party ;)
    Agatha Macbeth: You too? :p
    Eden Haiku: How nice Sun!
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes I am getting there Aga ;)
    Agatha Macbeth: (Tell me about it)
    Sunshine Vayandar: hehe ;)
    Sunshine Vayandar: I am trying to see what fits into the time I have
    Sunshine Vayandar: The founders session was such a special session
    Agatha Macbeth: This is wonderful Sun
    Eden Haiku: I like the cartoon bubbles!
    Sunshine Vayandar: and somehow while I was thinking how to write about it ....
    Eden Haiku: Or the phylacters [in French the word describes the text balloons in comic strips]
    Sunshine Vayandar: it turned into this hehe
    Agatha Macbeth: Is it in PowerPoint ?
    Zen Arado: nice Sun
    Riddle Sideways: ah, really like it. thank you
    Zen Arado: well illustrated
    Eden Haiku: yes, it's a wonderful way to do it Sun!
    Sunshine Vayandar: I did it in Open Office draw
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, right
    Riddle Sideways: the old Storm monk
    Sunshine Vayandar: and then each slide - I converted into jpg
    Agatha Macbeth: Nice to know Microsoft is useful for something
    Riddle Sideways: not M$
    Sunshine Vayandar: openOffice is not a microsoft product
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Zen Arado: open source
    Sunshine Vayandar: it's freely available to everyone
    Agatha Macbeth: That's why it works then...
    Storm Nordwind: You can export directly to jpegs from PowerPoint too
    Sunshine Vayandar: http://www.openoffice.org/
    Agatha Macbeth: So you could use it in Linux too?
    Sunshine Vayandar: really Storm
    Eden Haiku: I see Aggers is talking "serendipity" in there!
    Sunshine Vayandar: I use Linux only
    Agatha Macbeth: As always :)
    Storm Nordwind did most of the Kira Japan presentations like that
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Eden Haiku: And Adams is sitting on the barrier!
    Agatha Macbeth: That's Sharon I think
    Eden Haiku: Ah, yes, maybe:)
    Agatha Macbeth: Adams is OOV
    Eden Haiku: She was sporting her treasure hunt crown :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes!
    Eden Haiku: This is so neat!!!
    Eden Haiku: PaB comic books!
