All I know is if I had married him, my name would be Heidi Ho.
And just think: if the two of you had lived next door to Mister Rogers, every morning he could have waved to you and called out, "Heidi Ho, neighbor!"

(I'll see myself out...)
Wasn't "Heidi Ho, neighbor" the greeting for Tim "the Toolman" Taylor by his neighbor, Wilson? The 80's show "Home Improvement".
And to continue this thread, my maiden name is Wilson.

Then your father would have to be Mr. Wilson? It’s a lot of work keeping Dennis the Menace in check, so hat’s off to him!

I once borrowed his screwdriver. It was a Wilson Phillips.

There once was a passel of Muggles,
Outraged, armed with pitchforks and flames.
Lo, the fights! Arguments!! Struggles!!!
To define: "What truly is fame?"
Some bickered and dithered
Some cried, others not...
Good points on both sides
(well argued, I thought!)
But when push came to shove,
The answer *I* bought...

...is that Gaffney will always be right.
And good night!
:D

Sitting by the pool reading a book about hummingbirds (The Glitter in the Green). So far, the author has mentioned H.G. Wells (his stance against murderous millinery) and D.H. Lawrence (quoting a poem). Who will be next?
