 ;D  ;D  ;D   .... I share the following suggestion from one of my dedicated ancient living relatives - guess his favourite TV show to watch when not reading threads on RChat as a guest ... .....

"Could this Dear Elizabeth be an ancestor of Dear Hyacinth (MMN Walton) so that by Keeping Up Appearances the Dear Bucket Woman can become a Leche by any other name the same" 

 :P  :P  :P  :P

Love it  ;D ;D

Mind you, I've never seen a birth announcement like this one of theirs (even if it is the editor's note). No wonder she had tickets on herself.  ;D
