Hey, Lona -

Just got back from the George West StoryFest's 20th Anniversary, and had a grand time; wonderful kids, and a great reception at a local church where 5 of us shared this morning.

What've you been up to since March 25?!

Or Isn't great to be able to change your voice in mid stream and go into another character without the other person being totally thrown off.

Lona,
My name is Penny Walter and I am a puppeteer in Portland Oregon.
Buck Creacy told me about you and after reading your "About Me" I think we have a lot of things in common. Very excited/thrilled to meet you.

Been busy, my day job seems to put more and more demands on my time. I still tell some, but infrequently. How's your puppets doing.

Howdy back at you Lona. I guess I was in and out too quick for a timely responce. Maybe next time we will catch each other.

Hey, Lona!

Long time no hear, how are you?
Staying busy - crazy busy - trying to stay up with the carrying-ons all over this site!? (Me, too)

Hope all is well with you, business is booming, I trust - please drop a line from time to time so I won't worry (sometimes I may be prone to worry, if left incommunicado....)

Thanks for swinging by!

More, later -

Lona,

I was a member of POA in the 70's but let my membership expire when I took a "regular job." My storytelling started back then too, but it was as a volunteer at a local library in New Jersey. I never lost my love of story and puppets (and magic) throughout the years, these skills just were not my primary interest. With five children, I seemed to always have some reason to tell stories, bring out my puppets or do a little magic show. I also worked as a performing and teaching clown before this was popular and folks could go to Ringling Brothers to learn the art. Clowning is the only work I have really retired, although I have found that the skills I honed as a clown (timing, reading an audience, etc.) have served me well as a storyteller. In 1996 I decided to try my hand as a full-time storyteller, and I have not looked back since. What joy! I wish I had never been lured into the 9 to 5 world now that I know how much fun it is to tell stories and "live on the edge."

How about you?

Glenda
