Yes, I'll allow that!

HJ was Hurricane Jack. In the books, Sunny Jim went off to war (hope he came back safe) and Hurricane Jack took his place.

Two Dirty Pancakes.

No , I'm not serious! I find that because of new circumstances I suddenly have time to while away and want to start getting notifications again.

Maybe the Firmament could provide a clue.

Is the G a glen? I've got a mild interest in astronomy but can't think what DD or GM is.

I was looking for dragons in celtic mythology and the heavens but nothing that fits . As an aside have you seen the photo that the National Museum of Scotland (Facebook page) posted re which Lewis Chessman best represents how you are coping with the lockdown.

Nothing to do with glens and the heavenly interest is less scientific. GM aka TA.

Nothing to do with dragons or mythology, and though the main theme is fictional, DD's are very real indeed.

Not on Facebook. My "Berserker" character is very calm at the moment, being self isolated with no-one to vent my fury upon, and anyway, it's a bit hard to clobber someone when two metre social distancing.
