I think Browning has a nicer ring to it, and at the mere mention of The Name, the skies open, the sun shines, the birds chirp, and all that was Wrong is Right again.

From one Dennis to another... is that why you took that second N out of your name, to save one letter?

In the 9th grade I decided one day I was simply tired of having to constantly use a superfluously silent letter in signing my name, so I quit doing it.

Don't say it, don't hear it, why bother?

And then I get into writing for a career & have to use ALL sorts & kinds of extraneous letters.….

And....it's probably the only area where I agree with the French.

Anybody else remember this?

Good old Marlon Perkins.
Those of us of a certain vintage well remember Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom.

I can remember when good old Marlon showed us the rifle they used to dart the animals. He showed the rifle case and pointed out the dart that was full of Nicotine to be used if they needed to kill the animal, vs. making it take a nap.

Anyone else remember that? Potent drug that Nicotine, wish I would have listened a little better to old Marlon, took a long time for me to kick the butts.
