That was soooo fun reading, especially Doug's middle. And yes you are in trouble. Lucky you've been married for 30 years...he will go easy on you.

I love Giuseppi's. Bob and I would walk there on Friday nights for supper when we lived on Dresden.

How did I go for that many years and not know "Mr. Swanson's" middle name was...well, what it is?! He must be great at keeping secrets! High school kids can be merciless!

I enjoyed this! I have also been married 30 years and we have 3 children. The E in my husband's middle name is for Earl. My dad's first name was Wilmer. No wonder he went by Bill! His sister's middle name is Elmyra!! Thank the Lord I wasn't named after her.
