Default What does this mean?

I know some one will have an answer shortly. I am feeling a little message board dumb, but I have to ask.

In many of the posts I see some one mention their "DH," as in "my DH and I are booked on the...." What does DH mean? I figured it was sometype of companion, but now it is driving me crazy. Feel free to inform me of any others that you think may stump me.

Thanks, as many people say there is no such thing as a dumb question, but I have heard of a few doozies that could qualify in my lifetime. This could be one.

Tom

Default Thank you,

Thanks alot. Ready2gonow thanks for the lesson, I needed it. Being new to the board I felt kind of remedial. But I get it now.

Thankfully there are alot of other adjectives that start with D. I dont think I qualify for the "dear" at all times either.

You're welcome! It took me a while, too. Others that I use are:

BTW = By the way
LMAO = Laughing My... (well, you get it)
ROFLMAO = Rolling on the Floor Laughing My...
IMO = In my opinion

Don't forgot another couple of common abbreviations:

SWMBO - She who must be obeyed
SE - spousal equivalent
