Thanks, Doc! I never knew there were so many.

A rather impressive list! I have a few comments, of course. :-)


Haifa Lutin A snooty Jewish girl down at the temple.

She's also a bit of an imp (le lutin is French for "the imp").

Lucinda Head A scatter-brained girl from Alaska.

I though she was from Massachsetts, sister to Gay Head, living near Martha Sviniard; I suspect Martha is really French or Italian (Svignard).

Marian Kine The girl engaged to William Arami.

She's easily cowed.

Miss Teak A mysterious woman little is known about.

Probably due to her dark, wooden demeanor.

Nan Tucket A traditional New England woman.

There are those who think she has a touch of kleptomania.

I would recommend you look up Zoe Gneiss, a pleasant girl who's become a rock-solid individual after undergoing a dramatic change under great pressure.

Abel Mann Lewisburg's last competition weight-lifter.

His cousin, Abel C. Mann, served in the Merchant Marine.

Corey Ander A spicy young girl from Colorado.

If Corey is a girl, she's in the wrong list. If not, you owe him an apology!

Gooden Small One of the most narrow-minded men I know.

He's so narrow-minded, he can look through a key-hole with both eyes at the same time.

Harry Beard The man who plays Santa Claus in the Christmas parade.

His photo:

M. T. Potts A woman who hates to cook.


Another in the wrong gender list.



The Elbow Room An unpopular bar in town.

For an unpopular bar, it seems to have a lot of patrons in the list. Then again, Bud Weisser wasn't on the list of patrons (or on the list at all).

All in all, a wonderful way to while away an evening!

Excellent commentary, Stargzer. I like your additions.

All the names are wonderful (as is Gzer's commentary).

We who were born to pun salute you!
