    Wow, Ireland? Awsome! That sounds like fun! I personally am doing well. Other than getting trampled by 10 6 year olds with silly string and water guns yesterday. Hahaha, fun time!

    Interesting. When I read about Richard's Kermit impression, I wondered if anybody had recorded it. Wow..he does do a pretty good Kermit impression!

    Another story for you guys:

    I went to papa john's today, and i got into a conversation with the man delivering my pizza to me. (we ordered in the store, then he dropped it by our house.) So i told the man about my day yesterday, and that i was just going to go home and watch The Muppets. He then asks what my faveriote muppet was. (It is Scooter) So after, when it gets delivered, (it was the same guy i was talking to) he goes: "And make sure to check under the box lid." Confused, I checked. And guess what was under the box: A drawing of Scooter! I was shocked, and i thanked the man. He left, and when i was done with the pizza, I hung it on my bedroom wall. (just the picture).

    How cool was that?

    That's awesome, Lola! You should put that in a scrap book after awhile so it doesn't fade. :)

    I was wondering if any of you guys ever go to the Jessica Max Stein site, because it has really good interview with Jane Hunt.

    *Can't find any details on the news that's put us all here in a black funk.

    *Buys some chocolate-coffee chip muffins at the HV bakery, not sure if it'd be the Muff YN Fluff or Upper Crust.
    *Has :batty: :smirk: :fishy: :crazy: :sing: and :search: add their signatures to the card, then leaves the package to be delivered up to Muppeteer Heaven for Jerry now that he's joined his daughter.

    Hi, everyone - yes, I know, I kind of zip in and out again only occasionally now. It's cause of the usual stuff - life, work, school.

    There's a story I'd love to share with everyone. My mom told me that on Halloween, this one group of trick-or-treaters came to the door. The group included a 12-year-old girl - and as Mom was giving out candy, the girl looked over my mom's shoulder and cried out in delight, "Richard Hunt!"

    You see, before we mailed out the AIDS quilt panel for Richard, we had my dad take a photo of it. And we blew it up to 2 feet by one foot, framed it and hung it up on the wall over the staircase - next to a Muppet poster. And Mom let the girl come in and take a closer look at the photo. She was a big fan of Richard and the Muppets, and Mom said the girl mentioned she would be going to a Muppet convention fairly soon.

    *Blinks. Is that Erin? Popping back into the RHLC? Now when the
    Muppeteer that Richard took under his wing back at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade so many years ago has unfortunately resigned from Sesame Street.

    *Is glad that Erin came back, smiles at the Halloween story, leaves a mug of hot chocolate.
    *Hope you found the haunter write-up I sent for your review, and happy belated birthday.

    Hi heralde! :) Yeah, I have been re-visiting a lot of Muppet and Fraggle Rock music today. Losing myself in the beauty and the fun of it all. :) As you can see from my signature, I am listening to John Denver and the Muppets right now. Looove "The Peace Carol"!

    I'm on "Little Saint Nick" right now... such a great rendition!

    The Peace Carol is my absolute favourite from that album!! Just hearing John Denver and Scooter/Richard singing together is one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard. It makes me want to go and sing it in front of an audience, but I don't think I'd ever get the nerve haha.

    I love "The Peace Carol", too. While we're on the subject of Muppet songs featuring Richard, another one of my favorite Richard Hunt songs is "Letter B". Richard's imitation of Paul McCartney is spot on, in fact, the song got me interested in the music of The Beatles. I think I'd agree with everyone else here, Richard is among the best singers of the Muppet performers.
