I sometimes wonder if people with surnames such as, say, "Vessel", imagine the consequences when they christen their offspring "Michael Terence" and the poor child has to sign in as "M.T. Vessel" for the rest of his life.
This must have been a great problem to the extended family of East Angular's second leading blogger Dave East. He has relations all over the region (well he does have a bicycle) and I thought I'd let you know about a few of them:
Bertram East : A bounder and a cad. Used to live in Bolsover.
Fred East : A lover of fine foods. Sometimes possibly known as Fred Amin because you never see them both in the same place at the same time.
Derek Colin East : Sadly no longer with us. Also, sadly, his late wife Muriel East.
Barry Richard East: His amazing recall led him to become known as "the Man with 2 Memories".
Yuri East: Moved here from Latvia and rose very quickly to make an awful lot of bread.
Colin Robert East: Famous for his unkempt appearance. Known as "Crumpled Zone" which I suppose must be a bit like Boyzone without the Iron.
Percy East : Frankly, a bit of an old soak. Often pointed porcelainwards.
Lennie East : Very competitive. Never wants to be Last. (Bit like Dave really!)
Has anyone come across any other branches of this diverse dynasty?
