With me it's "Mrs. Wallace". Mind you, Dick's last name is Maehl, not Wallace, and if they don't know me well enough to know that, then I'm Dr. Wallace. Alas, it's always men, and even correcting them doesn't help . I spoke today with the manager at a dental clinic to which I had referred a client. I answered my phone "Hello, this is Dr. Wallace." (it's my work number)and heard "Hi, Mrs. Wallace, this is Diego at XXXX Clinic." I corrected him twice more during our conversation. No help. In neither Spanish nor English was he able to overcome his notion that women on the hone must be Mrs. Or Señora.

Now I'm putting that out of my mind because we're expecting Mo and Martin from Wales on the 8:30pm AA flight!

yeah, patty

lotsa folk here call me ginny and i don't really care.
i just presume that they are more comfortable with two-syllable words and that the four syllables in vir-gin-i-a
are too, too much for them.
so, just in case, i added roo for those poor buggers who can't cope with more than one syllable....well, you get the drift.

aaah, what an effort davoboy, and on a saturday morning, at that!

t'must have been bit early though, as there wasn't a virginia in kansas anymore, the girl was speaking to toto, the dog. we'll see how you apologize for that one.

what you were groping for, in your sleepy mind, was the seasonal bore i am getting, for the 65th time in my life, and that is 'yes, virginia, there is a santa claus'
usually uttered by exceptionally original cliche merchants.

i KNOW there is a santa claus. if you don't believe, you're gettin no presents and nuffin. so i do.

yaaaawn. more coffee. then there are 3 garage sales to snoop about in.
