Anne Sullivan says her lifetime as a New Yorker and a stage manager for Broadway and touring musicals did little to prepare her for life in New Mexico. After moving to a small adobe in Lemitar in 1970, learning to drive, driving off a mountain, setting her house on fire, being flooded out three times, she moved to a log house in Datil in 1987 where, with one dog, three cats, one horse, two word processors and an answering machine, she remains relatively disaster-free.
Anne Sullivan may be reached at P.O. Box 132, Datil, New Mexico, 87821. Her phone number is 505-772-5509.

Craig Shockley was born and raised in Colorado. Always a bit confused, he joined the Army instead of the Navy to see the world. But nevertheless, even wrong decisions sometimes work out. During a twenty year career he found himself "visiting" Germany three times, Korea three times, Viet Nam twice, and Panama once. In between overseas tours he resided in several stateside posts but never quite long enough to get caught up on network TV shows. The military has no sympathy.

Jim Reed is basically compatible when given a cup of coffee, a newspaper, and forty-five minutes silence when he gets up in the morning, therewith explaining his life-long nickname of "Bear." At age fifty-three, he vaguely remembers serving tons of bacon, eggs and creamed beef during his twenty-one years of military service, none of which, thankfully, created causalities upon the sons and daughters of America's finest parents.

Author Stephen Reynolds says, "I grew up in New Mexico and spent the better part of my first thirty years wandering around the state searching all the nooks and crannies like an errant coyote - ten years of that nomadic existence being paid for by the Game and Fish Department. How can you beat it? Then I was lucky enough to get the same kind of job in Alaska, and spent another twenty years or so wandering around in that part of the country. So, I guess you could say I have an intimate knowledge of the back-areas of both states."
