As you now know Norman it was me!!! |
If Jackie had seen the post I am sure she would have seen it as a joke.
She mentioned Beaky in her post. Beaky was T.E.A. Acum a Grammar master at JGS.
Jackie asked humorously should she have used "who" or "whom" to be grammatically correct?
So, from beyond the Grave, Beaky posted for Miss McPadden as TEAA. Thomas Ethelbert Aldred Acum!
Beaky (ie me) went on to help Jackie with her grammar and at the same time took a swipe at Mac (myself) for not quite knowing either. "We all have our shortcomings, Cummings" was a set phrase of Beaky's in the 50's when I got something wrong!!
I guess it was a joke which fell short of its target!!
