Mrs. Denton, if you are reading this, bravo.

I've been debating introducing my mother, a mere 83 yrs old, to SL. I'm afraid, though, that she'd enjoy it a LOT and probably would become a griefer for the lolz.


More power to you, LS Back! Great story, Hamlet.

Ghosty Kips

Awesome, absolutely awesome. :D

Exactly what I want to be doing when I'm 100 - playing on whatever cutting edge game there is at the time :-D Well done LS!

I shall remember Ms. Back the next time I think, "I'm getting too old for this". Thank you, ma'am.


This is AWESOME! What a great story, and Ms. Back you keep doing what makes you happy ma'am!

I am considered "old" in Second Life with my avatar being over 5 yrs old now, and I will tell you my favorite thing STILL to do in Second Life is explore and see all the great things peoples creative minds can create! :)

YAY YOU! Have an awesome day!


OOOO!! Send Ms. Back to NYMPHETAMINE, we will hook her up with a gift certificate and let her do a little shopping too! :) Message Stacy Maracas in world and I have a present for you :)

Met vriendelijke groet,
