But not for fetching water.

It seems that one of my relatives signed her friendship wall on page 25. There aren't that many Cowells around--we're probably connected somehow.

And there she is again on page 39. Now I have some research to do.

Neat! I just found my autograph book from my elementary school graduation [which would have been... 1980 I think?]. I scanned a few pages and put them up on facebook to show to people who I am still in touch with, or rather in touch with again. I think it's funny to come up against your handwriting from the past.

I had a leaving book from when I did my GCSEs in 1998. Fraz, who thought I looked like Jesus, wrote 'Dear Jesus, it has been a good 54 months. I once saw the Virgin Mary on a fridge.'

He is now a town planner.

Pater Aletheias - I work with a Cowell. Maybe it's more common in the UK?

mippy--I think it probably is. In my entire life, I've only run into one other outside of my family.

Really charming - thank you.

(Not sure about #16 "O L said the parrot"? - maybe "oh hell" ?)
