Marianne pretty much left more than a year ago now, before my computer crashed.
What I recall is that Tink and I were searching her out through her e-mail, and there were some difficult things going on...it seems I recall she was sick for a while? Then she moved; and in the new place, her Internet did not work very well at all. I had the sense that is really why she did not try to keep up here on SOLVED.
The last time I saw Skunky was on here, SOLVED...long time now.
