    Depending on your mood, the D can stand for Dear, Darling, Demented, or D@$*%d...

    W = Wife
    H = Husband
    S = Son
    D = Daughter
    SS = Step-Son
    SD = Step-Daughter
    GS = Grand Son
    GD = Grand Daughter
    MIL = Mother In Law
    FIL = Father In Law
    SIL = Son In Law (or Sister In Law, depending on context.)
    DIL = Daughter in Law
    BIL = Brother In Law
    SO = Significant Other (for those who can't make a decision)

    Additionally, you'll find a few other acronyms floating around here that you may or may not already know...

    PUP = Pop UP
    TV = Tow Vehicle
    TT = Travel Trailer
    DO = Dutch Oven
    WDH = Weight Distributing Hitch
    N2U = New TO You (or New TO US, again depending on context.)
    N2Y = New TO You
    OP = Original Post (or Original Poster, when talking about the person.)
    PO = Previous Owner
    SPUT = Stupid Pop Up Trick (You'll know it when it happens.)

    M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E = The leader of the club that's made for you and me... [:D]

    (Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain... He's really a screwball...) [:D]

    Excellent thread! I always wondered what a SPUT was, but I had a feeling that I'd know it when I saw it...

    Like when I drove off from the dealership w/ my new (to me) trailer and the hitch ball receiver (part on the trailer that fits over the ball) didn't seat correctly, so the trailer came off of the ball when I hit the first good sized bump and caught on the safety chains. I knew it was a SPUT, even if I didn't know what it meant! [:D]

    Incredible how fast I got responses. (Do you have jobs?) [:D]
    I did a search to no avail, but it looks like several of you must have cut & pasted from previous posts. No one types that fast.

    Thanks. Now I can sleep.

    Hey Dan!

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I didn't cut and paste - and you can measure my typing speed with a calendar. DW types 45 words per minute - no big deal, I know. I have to look down at the keyboard when I type, and can generally get something coherent out (after spell check) in about 4 minutes.

    Big secret here - type your replies in a word processor (like Microsoft Word or Corel Word Perfect) then cut & paste it here. It makes you look more intelligent than you really are... [:D]

    Hey - it's been working for me for years!

    "Dear" wife or "dear" husband just sound so patronizing. How about dizzy, dorky, dumbfounded or dimwitted?... [LOL]

    Dear? I always thought it stood for DA as in "the" (in a Minnesota accent and yes you Minnesotans have accents)

    Thanks for posting those questions. The DW and DH had me confused also! I got the last letters okay, but it was the D I was having problems with :)

    It TMFAL (threw me for a loop) too. [LOL] Since I don't get into the texting and quick responce modes of communication I was spending a bit of time guessing.
    You know, like Tom Hanks:
    "NY"
    "No way!"
    "That's 'NW'."
    (Movie quote - "Sleepless in Seattle.")

    Hey Snow....
    OMGosh, I've got to send these to my sis. She's the main caregiver for our folks, DD-90 and DM-89. She also does all the email correspondence for dad since he isn't steady enough to type anymore.
    Think this will give her quite a chuckle.
