As the resident illiterate, this is right up my allay. Yes, catalogged
would be the best choice but cattleoged is alos one we would utilize from
time to time. And lets be carefull what we call trivial. My mother
trivialed at lot in birthing me into the world.
Hoping to bring some sonshine in our musty lives :-)
Love ya all
PS Well !!! This is interesting. In spell checking this post to make
sure I had the words misspelled as intended, when it came to the word
catalogged the spell checker popped up with * cataloged *. This prompted
me to go back and spell check Doug's * catalogued * . The result is that
_both_ words (spellings) come as is in my Microsoft spell checker.
