RE: Abbreviations

I have been posting here for a long time and I still don't know what most of them mean. I'm sorry but I am not going to try and remember them. If I a poster can't take the time to type what they mean, I just back out.

RE: Abbreviations

No worries Stargazzer. If you don't want to, it's up to you. But some people do want to know, and that's for whom I posted this message.

RE: Abbreviations

Silver, HOW could you have forgotten one of the most important one that comes up quite a bit TOW THE OTHER WOMAN...However duly noted that you did remember TOM LOL

RE: Abbreviations

RE: Abbreviations
