Re: Couch, Sofa, Davenport?

Okay, I am late on this one... but I hear a lot of older people refer to a couch as a "davenport".  Growing up, we referred to it as a "divan" which may be a shorted version of the former.  Now, I just call it a couch or a "luv" seat, depending on the size.

As far as geography is concerned, I am useless!  LOL  I have been to the Quad Cities before, and I often hear about Bettendorf because that is where our Bishop is from and I think it is where the monastery is.
