Undoubtedly. She put John Staple (I love John Staple) in the lamblike, I
believe. However Hugo (I love Hugo even better) she quoted as being; "not
very Heyer-hero, because *nice*".

Maybe lamblike wasn't the word she used... but I remember it was something
with mild connotations. I'll look it up tomorrow. My Heyer-bio lurketh
outside in the shed and to put the light on I have to unplug the tank pump,
and to unplug the tank pump I need the light.

Confused *now*?
