    As I understand it, the 'D' as in DH can also be darn or damn, depending in the context and the posters state of mind:p (ie….after first posting "damn neighbor", any following references are merely stated as DN)

  • LOL Pat glad you explained cause I thought just a bunch of grins but funny some thought you were growling!

    I use DH, but the first part isn't dear and the 2nd isn't husband. Hm… Richard Cerebellum covers it. Speaking of which, one day he came home from playing ball and said sadly... a DH here and a DH there today (he had left garbage can open so I wasn't happy when he walked in door after an hour of cleaning up trash and mopping). I looked confused... "Designated Hitter" he said sadly.

  • First Basenji's

    So funny that we all had our interpretations of Tanza's "ggg" …

    In my head, it sounded like a version of the Muttley laugh (you know, from those old Hanna Barbera cartoons?). Except more "gk gk gk" than wheezy...
