Welcome to FiberglassRV. Humm, I feel certain your name really isn't "olegoat," what should we call you?

Welcome, Bob with one "O".

Hope you find this place as useful as we have as newbies.

I have a motherinlaw from Huntsville Ontario, who's name is Dawn. Now in Canada-speak her name is pronounced with an 'ah' sound, so it sounds like the name Don. Coincidentally, she has a son who's name is Don (but in Canada-speak, it's pronounced just like ''Dawn"). Just try and sort that out!
Anyway Bob is a whole lot better than Boob (two o's). Welcome to ya

Cool Northern friends

North shore of lake Erie-Am quite familiar with 'Duffy's' in Amherstberg [sic] just across from Grosse Ile MI where I was stationed. The Canadian Military friends were 'Her Majesty's Canadian Black Watch' Drill team out of Windsor. Many, many fond memories.

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.

Okay, I'm gonna bite....I'm Canadian and yes we do pronounce the names Don and Dawn exactly the same way. How do you pronounce them?
