Dave? Dave... no, I wouldn't have pegged you for a Dave. Conrad maybe. Possibly a James who is never to be called Jimmy. Or perhaps a Prescott. Dave wasn't even on the radar.

Well, there yer go! It's like trying to imagine what some-one looks like from their voice, I never get it right.

I do rather wish I had changed it years ago, in leaving the RAF maybe. Wouldn't do the Shavian thing and use my middle name, Arthur seems even worse!

There was a fashion for putting your name and that of your GF in stick-on letters at the top of your windshield - "DAVE   SHARON" were always the ones in jokes. Pity, I fancied a Sharon at that time . . . There was a social group called "Chavs" at about the same time, take too long to describe them but let's just say they had "pretensions above their social station" and a certain dress code. It may be my paranoia but the blokes, in jokes, were often called "Dave".

Could be worse, but I will not name the names that make me shudder, just in case!

I'm with JJ on this one, never would have guessed you were a Dave, maybe "Malcolm John Figgypudding" or, "Geoffrey Ridgewell Grosscastle", perhaps "Roland Frederick Hossenfeffer", or what seemed most likely, "Lord Ichabod Jonathan Cockwaddle the Elder"!

So now I'm feeling a little daughterly, as my dad's name is Dave.
I like it!
