    I just joined today and have no idea if I am posting this correctly. My name was Cindy Hall then. I was a messenger and of course in the RPF. I had the "honor" of working under DM, what a horroer. I blew in 1979 or thereabouts. I remember so many of us being in the RPF only to have it "discovered" that it was all Paulette's fault....last name?? She was really the SP...jesus how did we make it through

    I knew Annie, Pat, the Reisdorfs and many many more. I hooked up with DeDe Reisdorf in LA in 1987 ish.....but I was pretty crazy then.

    It's been so long and looking for old friends.....

    Stories! I've got them 1978ish? Palm Desert Meeting LRH

    I was 20...just arriving in Palm Desert after being promoted in Clearwater...a was an honor then. I was going to meet LRH..."serve" him to help change the world. I remember the first time I went on "watch". I was with a Senior could have been Gail Reisdorf soon to become Irwin or perhaps Annie...Annie T. soon to become Broeker. was the best. I was blindfolded and driven the LRH location in a blacked out van. At that time because of his fear of the CIA and IRS he lived on the LaQuinta premises.

    There is so much to tell and so little time...I will write again and place some threads under Scientology stories.....this could be cathartic.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome.

    Hi Cindy,

    I remember you. I forgot you had blown. And I'm glad you reminded me that Gail and DeDe were sisters with the maiden name Reisdorf. You weren't around when DeDe married Fritz, but I guess she filled you in on that when you ran into her in the 80s. I've wondered what happened to her.

    I posted earler today with a list of some I have wondered about that were not on the long list of SU staff. A couple I forgot on my own list were Lisa Caetano who married someone named John. I can't recall his last name. And yea, someone already corrected you that Melanie married Pat. I mentioned them as I wondered about their fate.

    Sorry, but I'm not yet (maybe never) revealing who I am. But I never really knew you, just remembered who you were.

    aaahhh, but therein lies the puzzle - because you can't discount that possibility! :)

    Actually, it's a pretty lame handle to use. I just came up with it in a couple seconds. I really need to do a careful study of the very best one and think it over and over to be sure. Then I'll reappear at some future date with my new identity. ... yea right.

    Hi Cindy,

    Welcome to ESMB!

    I do know you and your Dad who was there as well. (PM sent to you separately).

    That was Paulette (Ausley) Cohen - she was married to Rich Cohen who was in the RPF for L1 at the time.
