What is a glerkd and how did it come to be?

A glerkd is a George-Lorrie-Emily-Roger-Karen-David! It came into existence through the genius of Lorrie. It was a secret family code for recognition in an emergency. A stranger who couldn't name the code word was out of luck because the next step was to turn and run. It was also the signature on correspondence such as Christmas newsletters. It has now become another alley of information for our beloved ancestors of the Frampton-White lines. If you remember a GLERKD moment, please share!
