I only use Dave in my stories as a generic name. This is much like the 'Uncle Bob' stories.
Unless otherwise linked to another story, one Dave is not the same as another Dave. When I get at least three stories in a group I'll make a series.
Thanks for all the positive feedback.
I am always open to suggestion for stories or scenes in stories. Please don't be offended if you don't see your suggestion right away. It doesn't mean that I have forgotten about it or rejected it. Writing here is only part part part-time.
