I’m sad to say that the one thing that could bring “Melonpool” out of retirement was the passing of longtime fan and friend (practically family), Dr. Linda Shaver-Gleason. Longtime readers will remember her as a frequent poster on the old message boards under the name “FortyTwo.” It’s actually where she met her husband, Chris Gleason, one of my my best friends and the puppeteer and voice of Sammy the Hammy in all of our various puppet adventures.

Linda, you will never be forgotten. You will always be loved.
