Thank you all for the friendly welcome.
boxwellbaxter~ I have several direct line descents from William I, so take your pick. I was excited to find several deBohun ancestors in the SKP books, and of course the Marshal's in EC's books.
MLE~ Yes to both questions(I hope) Several,(but not all, which is interesting) of my granddaughters 'feel' the MA, and love to wear the costumes. So do I.
Lovehistory~ I will be travelling to Wisconsin on Nov.18th
Misfit~I have a kitty just like the one in your avatar. What does (beat Divia this time) mean?
Miss Moppet~Your 'adventure' was hysterical!
Ken~ You were right about the welcome.
juleswatson~ I will be changing my avatar so you (and MLE) can see the photo of my 'Swan Maiden', or 'Order of the Swan Badge' (debohun) granddaughter. Can't wait to read one of your books.

Hi There Ellie,

Glad to see you here!
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'
