This is laugh-out-loud funny! ...I'm still laughing as I type this!


I love this. Especially about the rat eating confederate ancestor! And you do have fans! I'm certainly one for sure.


Michelle and Ceal, THANK YOU! It's all just a candle shining in the great dark night. Or something.

I was thrilled to change my last name when I got married because my maiden name was Head. Seems ok until you mix it with teenagers teasing and having to spell it repeatedly for everyone. H E A D yes head! Anyway, I have really enjoyed the break from teasing and spelling.

This was superb. I laughed out loud. And the confederacy was never the same. I am definitely one of you multitudes of fans.


Catherine, I can imagine the teasing. I have spelling problems too;nobody gets it right though I tell them it's like the chainsaw.


Gerry - So glad I made you laugh. You stand out in the multitudes.
