It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon - temperatures in the upper 70s, a breeze, clouds in the sky but not too many.

So I spent some time under the crabapple tree.  It was just lovely.  The doves sat on the wire and cooed for me.

And one by one, the overlords came to visit.  (Sometimes in groups, sometimes for a minute, sometimes longer.)

And so I got a glamour shot of the Hunting Overlord.

And a few not as glamorous.

I got a truly lovely shot of the Long-Haired Overlord.

      I think the -ee sound at the end can sometimes sound young. So Joey Biden wouldn’t work as a well as Joe Biden. Donnie Trump would sound young compared to Don Trump. Teddy Roosevelt also went by Theodore. Not just Teddy. Ted Roosevelt would have been fine too. Bill Clinton went by Bill instead of Billy. But his name is William. The only president I can think of that went by a nickname with an -ee ending is Jimmie Carter. And he always tried to portray himself as “one of us.” So the Jimmie sort of makes sense. 

      I think the name Charles is very formal sounding compared to Charlie. Whereas a name like Thomas (very formal) can be shortened to Tom (more adult casual) from Tommy (more for a child). You can’t shorten Charlie to a more “appropriate” adult nickname, unless you totally change it to Chuck, etc., and you end up only back to Charles, which is kind of stuffy. I think Charlie for an adult man is used a lot more than nicknames like Johnny, Billy, Bobby. And I have a son in his 20s who still goes by a Johnny type nickname. We always called him that growing up and he’s still called it by all of his friends.

      I mean even the president goes by Joe as opposed to Joseph, so it’s not like there’s any job where you have to go by a formal first name. It the president can do it, so can you. What’s higher up than the president? 
       

      It’s not like, the more formal the job is, the more you have to go by a formal first name. I’m sure plenty of people in high up jobs goes by Tom, Jim, Ben, Liz, Maggie, Andy, Alex etc.

      Gary appears to have issues with Billy Graham.

      I'm not sure what prompted this.  He's supposed to be down in North Carolina visiting his mother in the hospital.  I guess he's on his phone digging up dirt on celebrity preachers in his spare time.

      I enjoyed the comments.  Some were thoughtful and pointed out that a loving deity wouldn't torture people for an eternity and that, perhaps, Hell is a separation of man from God.  A couple of devoted Gary-followers thought they had been deceived and vowed never to have Billy Graham come preach to them.

      But at least Gracie is actually Grace and I bet Charlie is actually Charles. That way they have choices as adults. 

      I gave my boys names with nickname options so they could have a choice. We quickly settled into calling my youngest by his full name because it fit him better. If he was named Charles, he would have been called Charles and not Charlie, Chuck, etc.
