ON THE BACK BURNER

March 21

As I was walking Cricket, I was thinking about names and how they can identify your age. You don't hear of too many Leona's,Lorraine's,Betty's,Pearl's,Matilda"s, Marjorie's,and Gilda,etc. The men's names haven't changed that much. There are still Ben's,Charlie's,John . Down south, girls are sometimes given combo names, like Sally Ann, Tommy Sue,Tommy Jo.You never leave out that second part of the name. I like the old fashion names. Like Rose. I know an older Rose ,in her 90's and I know of a Rose who is 13.I had a friend , when I was a kid, named Rose. And she was like a flower. That was the first time that I put a personality to a name. I am named for a Grandfather, Leon. Leo the Lion.That makes me a woman warrior. I need to buy another Wonder Woman pin. I gave mine to a 100 year old super lady. I should live that long.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
