Derby Here, Derby There, Derby Everewhere

Mum is always on the outlook for mentions of Derby, that are not me. Here is a few we have found.
Here is one from a book she was reading, that mentions Derby figures. Mum can't exactly remember the book she was reading at the time. She thinks it was something that some one wrote as a look at what happened after Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice' ended.
On Caturday January 3, in the English Soccer, football to my UK furiends, Derby was playing at Forest Green. I wonder if Derby has a good team or not?
This was from a magazine that mum found when she and Grampie went up North last fall. We have a Derby track and a Derby Inn!

It is going to be snowing lots again today, the most we have gotten since Christmouse Eve. Mum has been happy for the break of snow, snow, snow, snow, snow, snow, snow, snow. Plus next week their are talking about EXTREMELY COLD temperatures. Mum and I need to be prepared to snuggle up really good to stay warm.

You really are everywhere, Derby. I hope you keep warm when it gets really cold out. Maybe you will get snowed in and your Mom will have to stay home with you.

What a neat idea to keep track of mentions:)

We hope you and your family are ready to wrap up warm and snug for the cold weather. It doesn't sound fun!

Derby, you are very famous to have so many things named after you!

I'm sorry to tell you, Derby, that Derby does NOT have a good soccer team. In fact, last season they set a new record for scoring the fewest points EVER in the Premiership (top league) and got ignominiously relegated. Since then, they have sacked 2 managers amidst loads of passing the blame. However, having said that, they did have a shock win over Man United in the Carling Cup the other day, so that must have cheered them up a bit!

Fat Eric (our team, Chelsea, is second in the Premiership at the moment and had a good chance of being champions this season, but they have been having a bit of a wobble over the last few weeks, we fear they may not win after all)

Mom likes your mom's idea! She's always noticing "Lux" or "Luxor" things also.

Derby is a really cool name; we love it!

P.S. Please stay warm next week!

Wow there are lots of Derbys around. Even a football team!

Thanks for the lovely long comment - exactly how I feel. Nobody can get me when I am on the roof, except the birdies and they don't dare!

Stay warm and snuggle, Derby and Mom!
