True!

How about people no longer naming their son Richard?

I've been reading Enid Blyton books to Dd lately, and theres an awful lot of being gay and having a gay time in those, I just switch the word to happy Otherwise my little parrot will be shouting I'm have a gay day or gay time all over the school yard and I'll be having a chat with the teacher

My friend here named her boy Richard, after her father (deceased) so far only my UK Dh calls him Dick or Dickie. He hates it, but she was asking for it, she named her next one Thomas, so when boy #3 was on his way we all asked it he'd be Harry. Her Dh wouldn't let her, even though Harrison is a family nane and she loved it

Some regulars have made changes in their lives and we don't hear from them as much as we would have liked.

Eastern got weemac puppy and is maybe switching jobs and buying a car.

Dondunroving has a delima over his occupation.

Jackie will be back when things slow down.
