| Kelly challenged me to list five things no one knows about me. I am not going to tag anyone, but if you feel so challenged to list five things about yourself it could be fun. Here are mine.1. I love old RKO movies, have since I was a child. Every Saturday afternoon I would find myself glued to the TV – and it was all black and white movies. I still find black and white movies fun. Give me a good Fred Astaire movie, or the Thin Man, or Charlie Chan, etc. and I am thrilled.
2. When I lived in Chicago I was a member of the Society of Creative Anachronism, a group of people who studied Medieval History, dressing up in the costumes (no zippers, they had to be accurately made), and they would have wonderful feasts of medieval food. I belonged to the Dark Horde – the Mongol group of people headed by Yang the Nauseating – he used to be a chief accountant for a big company, and was also a science fiction author. We had fun, and used to go in costume to watch Samurai flicks, and then go and eat out at a Japanese restaurant in costume. Loved watching the looks on people’s faces. The people in the SCA were so involved that some made chain mail from scratch. That stuff is heavy and one of my fondest memories is when there was a local Chicago event, and a friend of ours brought his suit of mail, but had to go by the office first. He could not carry it, so he wore his suit of armor on the Elevated Train during rush hour carrying his briefcase. People were looking out the windows, looking at each other, reading – anything but looking at the one in the suit of armor.
3. Ever since I used to read Trixie Belden mysteries, I wanted to live in a house with a secret room. I used to feel the walls of my childhood home looking for a room to hide in. Never found one, but if I could ever build a house, I sure would put a secret room in it.
4. On Long Island I lived in a house that had a hidey hole (secret room) behind the sink for the Underground Railroad. On the floor near the front door were faint symbols that showed that this was a safe house. the house was so old that the basement had a tree trunk as part of the support for the upstairs floor.
5. I belonged to the Man From U.N.C.L.E fan club. That was my ultimate TV show when I was a teen. I thought David McCallum as Illya Kuryakin was awesome. Still like him.
