Thanks for sharing Sue. I am going to start fining people who say Loretta instead of Loretto, and those who say Lonnie, or Lon and hopefully I will make 2 million pounds a month. Keep your fingers crossed, and let me know if you hear anyone calling me Loretta, Lonnie or Lon
:-)
1% commission?

Don and I went to Switzerland..... yonks ago. We really loved it. Now, we're not so sure if we want to go back. This is just insane!!

Thanks Sue, regards Lon x
Hi Terry, I have been a bit preoccupied lately. Check out the "Writing" section in Blathering on. Sorry, but I decided, as much as possible, to refrain from social media until the funeral was over. But now I am back <3

You have now fined yourself, Loretto! I get the money, heeheehee.
 
Re: Swiss railways by Spursfan2 on 5 February 2013 2:54pm
 
I am always tempted to say Loretto with an 'a' instead of 'o' [hahaha - you can't fine me for that !!] because my sister's first name is spelt that way [hee hee] though she, like me, is known by her middle name.

[The vicar at her christening in 1938 apparently told Mom and Dad that they could not call her (phonetically) Le-reee-ta as they wanted to say it, so they had to settle for 'Le-ret-ah'.

And to think nowadays you can call your baby anything under the sun, including names of fruits!!]

:D

Good to learn, as I might have to go to Switzerland next year.

Not me, Mike. Hearing about the gracious treatment of paying passengers has made up my mind. I will boycott the whole country.

Yeah, Loretto, you deserve to be addressed correctly.
