Yeah. Sorry. I'm swiftly approaching middle-age and work in the dog eat dog world of insurance! I try to get all my aggression out on the highways, but apparently there's some still lurking deep in my subconscious. Sorry "person that doesn't remember the black lady from Duma key". The thing that is really gonna keep me up nights, is that I called her "Nadine" and her name is "not Nadine"! Really? Really?!! How stupid am I? I could have used any other name and it might have been exceptable. Again, I'm sorry Pam! Gladys! Trudy! Hannah! Beyoncé! Carol! Janet! Rhiannon! Tammy!

The funny thing, I expected people to rush to my defense and bombard me with likes! Wow, I must be more optimistic than I thought.
Apology accepted. :smile:

Truthfully, I had made the same mistake as not_nadine did, I had assumed you were talking about Elizabeth. It's been a very long time since I've read Duma and there has been much talk and sometimes confusion as to her ethnicity.

I think we've cleared it all up now. :thumbs_up:

:biggrin2: I didn't remove a word, everything you said is still there just sitting behind a spoiler button.
Well, she probably didn't know that! But now she does. Thanks. :( Assuming she's a she. Assuming any of you shes are she! Flakenoir, why must you persecute me so? This is creepily similar to the second interglacial period when a Neanderthal would wander into a Homo Erectus camp (and I stress the word homo), complain about the way they built fires or worshipped some rock, then they'd fall upon him, club him to death and devour him. Or they'd tie him to a stalagmite with vines, make sport of him for days or weeks on end, then club to death. Then devour him. No chocolate Rugby for you! Chocolate snakes maybe. But no chocolate rugby.

I'm running late for work... but I suspect I still wouldn't know what you're getting at if I had time-a-plenty. ;;D

Have a nice day.... :smile:
