Hi Donald, What a great story! Conlanging has to be one of the most mentally-stimulating games or pastimes. And making the fun accessible to beginners, as you have done, is a wonderful contribution to your community's mental health, I think - it's an active, creative and essentially social activity. Do you mind if I forward your message to my local library? If not, what restrictions do you place on reproducing or using the two documents you linked to?
