    Blanket? I’d have used manta as the generic term. Any thoughts people? TIA

    Agree with Steve – “manta” is the only word I’ve ever heard used for blanket. And I’ve only ever heard “percha” for coathanger. A “gancho” is a hook.

    El cuarto, chiquita, not la. Only other complaint is that there´s no romantic or sexy associations – sure you could add some of those no bother!

            I think I might still be too young at 53 to hear your expert tanga-tied titillations. Specially with Alan … I really am too young for that!

            Ha ha. I can’t go too x-rated – am sure you’ll be able to handle it. ;)
