For name’s sake …..

A short one, and lighter.

 I watched an old comedy show the other day, with funny talk about nicknames.  I’ve had my share:

At secondary school I was ‘Pax’ – yes, they taught Latin

Over the years, various fore-names:

Master …

Penny …

Cod …

Restin …

Warren … (clever)

And I’ve occasionally organised evening drinks parties, known as Peace Soirs.

Finally, something a little different.  You’ll be delighted to know that I’ve been honoured by the United Nations. Today is the International Day of Peace.  My bank details are available for contributions to the David Peace Benevolent Fund ….
