NOTES [48 words]: Elder-Tobago: "... To be let alone the marriageable must hide or avoid company. 'Bubbo' is a common name for the pestering young man who wouldn't accept no for an answer. But he must be patient. In the village, conch shells are blown and the bells ring when a pretty girl gets married." - BS
