My father gave me the word last Friday morn… I’m going to be an aunt.
My sister’s sonogram revealed that a small female is growing inside her. And one day she’ll push her little head into the world with minimal bloodshed and tearing. Kevin and Pam are naming her Gracie.
I’m not too thrilled about that name, but it ain’t my kid. I’m just the lowly godfather with no opinion that counts with them.
Since they’re not having a boy, one of my Green Acres names is safe.
Although I’m still on the “sunny side” of 40, I’m still capable of producing offspring. Throughout the years, I have gathered a list of names for my future children and I have based them on my favorite television show, Green Acres. All the names are from characters on that show.
Here’s a list of boy’s names…
Dawson (what Kevin and Pam chose and cannot use)
Hoyt (not actually a character/Hoyt Clagwell was the brand of tractor Mr. Douglas had)
Here is a list of girl’s names…
Sam (NOT short for Samantha)
I particularly like Haney for a girl’s name and I cannot tell you why. I think maybe I just like the way it sounds and I’ve always liked Mr. Haney because of his selling pitch / comedy routine.
Let me know what you think… Leave your comments.
For years, no one ever thought about Dawson for a name until Dawson’s Creek did a little time on The WB. Once that show started gathering a small following, the name Dawson took off.
Yeah, I was kinda irked by that, but it wasn’t like I could start a family at that particular point in my life. Right now, my baby crates are still in good working order. There’s been a slow down in production, but the lines are ready to crank up at a moment’s notice. Just keep the Union informed.
Since some of you have requested it, here's a picture of me. It's an old one. I'm larger now and my hair is much shorter. The man that I'm pictured with is none other than Stock Car Racing Legend, Dick Trickle.
