Hello. My name is Phill Lytle. I've been a believer in Narnia since I was a small child. My father used to read the books to me, and my brothers, and there really has never been a time in my life that I didn't love Aslan and all the rest.

Thanks for letting me a part of this community. Looking forward to interacting with everyone, though I probably don't have time to post too often. I am married, have three kids (16,14, and 9 years old) and I have two jobs. I'll post when I can.

Thanks again!

Welcome to NarniaWeb, Phill Lytle! :-h You have a similar story to mine: my parents read the Narnia Chronicles to us when we were very young, so I grew up treasuring them, and have found them to have even deeper layers of depth as I get older, probably because of all the varied life experiences—the joys and the sorrows: no doubt you have found the same. We then read the books to our own kids, who came to love them, as well. :)

Good to have you here!
:D

Thanks for the response. I'm sure a lot of people can relate to our stories. Narnia has been a part of many lives.

Welcome to Narniaweb, Phil Lytle! Good to see someone from my part of the country on the forums! (Well, the same general part. I believe there's a fair amount of mountains in between us. :D )

Now, that I would love to see when completed! ;)) B-)

I realize I never answered the questions from the first post on this thread. Or, I answered some of them but not all. Or, I gave too much info. (My real name and all that.)

So, here is my attempt to get with the program:

1. Name (please avoid your real full name): Too late! Already gave my real name. Phill Lytle.
2. King or Queen of Narnia (guy or girl): King
3. Family (single/married/kids): Married with three kids. (3 boys.)
4. Occupation: Disability Claims Adjudicator and Blog writer.
5. How you learned about NarniaWeb: Not sure. Been lurking for years. All the way back to the Disney/Fox/Walden movies.
6. How old were you when you first read the Chronicles: My dad read them to me and my brothers. I read them first around the age of 8 or 9...probably.
7. How many times have you read the Chronicles: 10+.
8. Favorite of the Chronicles: Not sure. I love them all. Silver Chair has my favorite character - Puddleglum. LWW is the most iconic. Last Battle makes me cry the most.
9. Hobbies and/or interesting things about you: I love to write.

Welcome to the forums, SirVincentofNarnia! :-H Glad you stumbled across NarniaWeb; we're glad to have you here. Since you're an avid gamer, I bet you'd enjoy the Video Games thread here in the Spare Oom. :) Have fun exploring the discussions and if you have any questions about anything, feel free to ask!

Phill Lytle, I'm glad that you finally joined the community after so many years! I was a long-time lurker myself, once upon a time, and finally becoming a member here was one of the best gifts I ever gave myself. :)

Welcome to NarniaWeb, SirVincentofNarnia! It is good to have you here. :) Puddleglum is my favourite Chronicles character too. What a Marsh-wiggle! ♥ Btw, I would say that no choice of favourite book is 'weird' when it comes to Lewis, because they are all excellent! And as has been said, "my favourite Chronicle is the one I am reading at the time". ;)) Although if push comes to shove, I might be able to choose 2 or 3 that are tops for me. B-)

Ditto Rose's comment about you joining after having lurked for so long, Phill Lytle! Do your kids enjoy the Chronicles too? :)
