Name Game Blog Hop

Thank you Love, Marriage, Worms for tagging me! I hope I’m much better at this game than at the actual game of tag. I’m just too lazy for tag.

But in the spirit of the game, I’m going to tag Nerd in the Brain for the next round.


  1. Write a paragraph or two about somebody from an ordinary walk of life with an unordinary name. It can either be a true story about somebody you know with that name, or a fictional piece about somebody with a name you made up.
  2. After you’re done posting your story, send me an email to with your Blog Hop II, your blog name and either TRUE STORY or MADE IT UP in the subject line.
  3. Pick another Nano Poblano team member from the home blog roll page and tag them on their About page. Try to spread the wealth around from Fish of Gold’s original blog hop to start, but duplication is OK as the month rolls along.
  4. The writing cutoff is Nov. 28. By the end of Nov. 29, email to me at a list with a guess of TRUE STORY or MADE UP for each post on the blog hop. Put Blog Hop II, Final Guesses in the subject line.
  5. The Nano Poblano team member with the most correct answers wins a special prize, which I will mail to them. That means you will have to email me your address if you win.
  6. Add your link to the chain of writers.
  7. Have fun.


Several years ago, I knew a lady named Henny Youngman. I kept waiting for her to say something like, “I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places.”

She was fabulous and headstrong. If she didn’t want to get out of bed before 9 a.m. – by golly, she wasn’t going to get out of bed one minute before 9 a.m. Henny was funny, intelligent and aside from not being a morning person, she was really very friendly. She always liked to watch the music programs on PBS, especially symphonies. Henny had the best magazines and books laying around her room. We used to talk about the Vanity Fair issue with Liz Taylor and Richard Burton. It was about the last letter that one of them sent the other one. Henny always had a good story to tell.

She was definitely my favorite resident of all time.

“Just a small town girl – living in a lonely world.” Concert tickets are practically essential. Musicals are the key to life. I like movies, music,books, and corny jokes.


  1. Even if she is not real I like her. Good for her not wanting to get up before 9 am. A woman after my own heart. I like the image of the lady with branches for a hat as well.
