Fan Mail #28
Many of you know I watch the daily paper to read the newest baby names in our fair city. And occasionally I send a sampling of these names to family members for their entertainment and amusement. For example, in today's paper we have a baby girl named Indigo Blues. Over the years there have been some rather memorable choices for baby names, but today I think I found the absolute worst. And I am sharing it with all of you. Those of you who live in Spokane can check the paper and see this for yourself. Dacia and Brian named their tiny little baby boy: Charley Willard Horse Dick.
For our long-time readers...Mary is sister to Zusia! And thanks for that truly unfortunate bad baby name!
