    Welcome. I have a lifelong friend named Merrit. She pronounced it Marrt, one sylable kind of stretching the "r." She joined our fourth grade class straight from Norway. Couldn't speak a word of English but taught us how soccer was really played.

    I refrained from saying who I was until I got through some things. Now that those are sort of straightened out I can finally come out of hiding. I have filled out my profile and made an avatar...etc... But if you have any questions feel free I am happy to answer them.
