Well I grew up on a few streets so I'm wondering if I should run them all together or just pick one? Also have had a few pets. Decisions, decisions. At least I know which grandparent's name to use.

Elsie Fluffy-Mellor! Sounds more like a stripper's name. No wedding for me - good job I'm fully booked for this weekend already.

I was watching ET tonight about the wedding and they were talking about the royal brides that were married at Westminster. Elizabeth II, her daughter Anne, her sister Margaret and Sarah Ferguson. Sadly except for the queen, all of them got divorced! Not exactly the best track record for the Abbey, but the other choice of St. Paul's also a bit cursed in my opinion. Hopefully William and Kate will prove the exception.

Loved the "royal wedding", Ken :) But who the heck can remember the names of their first pet or street they grew up on on? (Apart from MLE, that is!)

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.
Location: California Bay Area

The street I grew up on is no problem, Annis -- my 96-year-old mom still lives in the house I was raised in. A hundred years ago, most people would still be living on that street. What a mobile society we have become!

I must confess Calico wasn't my first pet--she's just the first one I remember the name of. :D Now my first llama, that's another matter. His name was Arrow.

That's a great name, Michy!

Mine would be either Dora/Minnie Gigi-Wensleydale, hmm, doesn't trip off the tongue very easily does it!
