Quivering Spears

It has been getting a bit chilly some mornings here.

Many English family were originally derived from family trades or the occupation of ones father.  Which is why there are a lot of Smiths and also names ending in son (meaning son of) such as Woodson.

William Shakespeares Grandad must have been a guardsman that was either often cold or very nervous.

  1. Surnames perhaps, O great One?
    It's not well known that within the tent an alien's son is smoking illicit substances with the servants.
    The whole phrase goes
    "Now is the winter of our discount tent. Maid Gloria Summer by this son of Mork. And all the clouds that low'r'd upun our house"
    Or something like that....
