Hi Bob,
The wife and I are spending Sat. night in Suwannee State Park on our way to Hunting Island and Beaufort SC. Drop by if you want to see an EggCamper.
BTW, I'm an honorary Photo CPO; I worked for the Navy for 33 years, 20 of which were at the Navy photo school in Pensacola - until they moved to Ft. Meade, when I made the move to Corry and the CTs for the last ten years.

Hi: Pam Garlow...Last time I went smelt fishing we got so many could hardly lift the net!!! We ate our fill and the rest ended up as Rose food. Attracted every cat in the "Hood".

Anyway Bob is a whole lot better than Boob (two o's). Welcome to ya

And if you cross the border enough, and have Canadian relatives, you know JUST who everyone is speaking of (Don or Dawn) no matter WHO is talking )

For years & years I've had people comment on the way I pronounce "Don" & "Dawn", as I pronounce them as the same....don't know anyother way!
I've also had people ask me where I'm from...Spent summers w/grandparents in Canada, lived in Brazil & speak Portugese as well as Spanish (w/Portugese accent, I just found out!) Lived in Minnesota...so..I
guess I sound a bit different, altho I'm a native Washingtonian!!

Hmmm. I grew up in mid-Michigan, and everyone I knew pronounced Don and Dawn differently. DON was just a quick flick of the tongue and rhymed with RON, CON, and POND.
DAWN, however, was more drawn out, and my jaw and lower lip jut out a fraction when I say it. It rhymed with FAWN and PAWN.

BTW, my ex-husband's name was Boob! Other people pronounced it Bob, though.

So reverse those pronounciations, and you'll be saying them the way my Canadian relatives do! Don will sound like Fawn, and Dawn will sound like Ron!

I'm from central Texas, and I say Don and Dawn much the way Ruth does.

Maybe we need a poll? <JUST kidding!>
