My lord and I had played in another kingdom for almost ten years.  We
moved to your kingdom just recently and I can atest to the shepherding. 
If it hadn't been for some wonderful people helping us feel like a part
of this kingdom it might have taken us longer.  I too want to be a
shepherd.  It is a wonderful program and idea.  Count me in.  Bye,
Viscountess Kate, aka, Barb Howard.
