I know over time I've been able to put some faces to the names, but it's nice to get the visual of you all together. I've been a reader here and corrie.net for years and already feel like I know you anyway!

Thanks for your brilliant writing, all of you. Reading the blog has become as important as catching the Corie episodes. The two go hand in hand for me.

Well there's a surprise! I always thought Llifon Jones was a woman!

AmandaB said...

Yes so did I!

Great to put a name to the faces. Plus it confirms, as I'd suspected, that I met Glenda years ago.

Llifon said...

What made you think I was a woman? lol
