Rush...

Believe it or not...this has come up before! :lol: This is just me, but when I type HOD, I am just using it as an acronym and saying Heart of Dakota. When I say Hodie, I pronounce it phonetically Ho (long o) die (long e). If you wanted to use the short o, you would need to spell it Hoddie and it wou...

Just said a prayer for little Joshua.
